Sora The Tesla Of Electric Motorcycles?

By | General Posts

Electric bicycles, or e-bikes, are great cruisers. Don’t want to pedal up that last half-mile or more to get back home? Or go up yet another hill? No problem. Just turn on the electric motor, stop pedaling, and just focus on the road or trail in front of you.

But what if you want more? What if you’re feeling, as the cliché goes, that need for speed? Yet you don’t want to give up the green creds you’ve worked so hard to get with a fossil burner. Well, Quebec-based Lito Green Motion may have the ride for you.

Zero Motorcycles' 2013 Zero MMX Is Made For The Military

By | General Posts

Zero Motorcycles just announced the arrival of its all-new 2013 Zero MMX military motorcycle. 

The MMX was developed exclusively for military use in the U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) and provides Special Operations riders with unique tactical advantages over traditional combustion motorcycles, as the electric powertrain allows for rapid movement over hostile terrain in near silence and minimal heat signature. Zero Motorcycles’ engineering team worked under military contract to develop the motorcycle. The MMX has met the most stringent standards set forth by the U.S. military, as an undisclosed number of MMX motorcycles are currently undergoing full operational testing.

"it was a very rewarding experience for the Zero team to go through such an exacting development process. The military needed a very specific set of core features on the MMX, and we were incredibly thankful to work side-by-side with them to deliver such a unique product,” said Abe Askenazi, Chief Technology Officer for Zero Motorcycles. “The great news for our civilian customers is that we made the decision to incorporate into our 2013 MX, FX and XU retail motorcycles virtually all of the powertrain enhancements associated with satisfying this project’s stringent military requirements. Our 2013 product is truly ‘military grade’!”
