SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ — While many celebrities
retreat to exotic locales while on hiatus, James Denton from ABC’s
Desperate Housewives prefers the tranquil scenery of Montana. As an outdoor
and motorcycle enthusiast, Denton now has the ability to cruise through the
countryside in complete silence on his new Zero X electric dirt bike that
he recently purchased. The Zero X is a high performance, no compromise
electric motorcycle without the obnoxious noise and pollution of a regular
After taking a ride on his new Zero X through the scenic hills of
Montana, Denton simply said, "It’s unbelievable! You just don’t expect an
electric motorcycle to have this kind of power. I ride a lot so when I
heard about the Zero X, I was pretty anxious to get one. It’s pretty cool."
The Zero X is not a gas motorcycle conversion but was designed from the
ground up to take full advantage of the high torque, low weight 100%
electric power train. The Zero X electric motorcycle chassis is made out of
aircraft aluminum making it one of the lightest motorcycle frames on the
planet at 18 pounds. More than 300 individual parts were custom designed
for the Zero X, leaving the bike at total weight of 140 pounds, less than
half the weight of a gas-powered motorcycle.
The Zero X delivers blistering acceleration with unmatched handling and
maneuverability, while at the same time, delivering a quiet and smooth
ride. The battery unit is eco-friendly and approved for landfill disposal,
setting a new standard for electric motorcycles.
"Local motorcycle and backyard tracks are being closed because of the
noise and pollution made by gasoline engines. I built the Zero X to enjoy
off-road riding without the loud engine noise," said Neal Saiki, inventor
and founder of Zero Motorcycles. "We were thrilled when we heard about
James Denton’s interest in the bike. At first, customers are interested in
our motorcycle because it’s silent and clean. After a test ride, they are
amazed with the extraordinary power and torque that is packed in the
lightweight battery unit."
What makes the Zero X motorcycle truly different from other electric
motorcycles is the use of a special high power Lithium Ion battery. The
Zero X is the only motorcycle in production today that incorporates this
powerful, longer lasting, and more efficient battery solution. Zero
Motorcycle’s patent-pending high capacity power grid technology has the
highest power density (power storage per weight) battery pack on the
market, delivering the full current of the battery pack immediately, safely
and without overheating. Riders get the enjoyment of up to 2 hours of
quality riding without seeing any impact on performance.
