Well, they play in dirt better than most with fossil fuels. Maybe, they will lead the way with electrics.

Very interesting. Looking forward to seeing this. The other electric dirt bikes are still kind of like electric bicycles. This looks to be more like it.

That was my take on the Zero bikes after riding them at Daytona. A "real" motorcycle company should be able to do a much better job.

If Zero could market these things to college kids at about $4k they may have a little something. Selling through Best Buy is pretty funny, though. I can see it now: I need a camera, the new crooked vultures disc, a 22 in flat screen and this Zero. That's all I need. Oh, and this clock..... and maybe this Wiiiiiiiiiiii.
