Last month Zero Motorcycles annouced they had received $17 million in financial backing to expand operations. I am not sure how I feel overall about electric bikes but I do like seeing ANY U.S. manufacturing expand these days. Clean and quiet bikes may help promote our cause with those that complain about the pollution or noise factors of motorcycling. There is also some incredible technology in these bikes that should help the sport overall advance (when is the last time you road a belt-drive dual sport for example?). Check out their website for more info.
