The Zero X is an all electric dirt bike sans emissions and noise. With a top speed of 60 mph and the ability to go 0-30 in under 2 seconds, this is no wimpy bike. It is driven by a permanent magnet electric motor that is powered by a special high powered Lithium Ion battery. The battery along with it's power grid ensure up to 2 hours of riding without any performance lag. Once it's spent it only takes 2 hours to recharge plugged into a standard home outlet. These batteries contain no cobalt, nickel, lead or mercury, and are 100% recyclable and rated landfill safe, which is nice.
I haven't had the pleasure of riding one of these yet but I spoke with someone who has and he couldn't believe how quiet it was. He said that the only noise he could here when he was tearing down the street was a little chain rattle. What a great way to get way, way out in the wilderness fast, without fogging up the trail and deafening every living thing within a mile!
The Zero X can also be used for a green commute when its too far to ride a human powered bike. Just throw the street tires on and go. No motorcycle license? NBD, the Zero X has a Speed Controller so with the flip of a switch you can limit the top speed to a street legal scooter speed of 30mph. When it's time to send your eyeballs into the back of your head, flip the switch back and go.
This is one lean, mean, greenupgrade, just be careful you don't turn yourself into a compost heap. For more info on the Zero X and to buy visit ZeroMotorcycles.com
