With interest in electric motorcycles growing, Zero Motorcycles has expanded to Europe to facilitate growth in this new industry.

As the recent TTXGP at the Isle of Man TT races has proved there is a lot more interest in electrically powered motorcycles. No surprise then to find the California based Zero Motorcycles has recently announced the opening of a new European Headquarters in Amsterdam. In addition it has signed Independent Representatives in the UK, Germany, France, Austria, Italy and Spain.

Thanks to this, all three electric motorcycle models in the range, the Zero S, Zero X and Zero MX, will now be readily available throughout Europe. Having said that, the company actually began selling to Europe three years ago in 2006.

“After the incredible response Zero received in Europe, we realized the importance of making our motorcycles easily accessible to the European market,” said Neal Saiki, inventor and founder of Zero Motorcycles. “We offer the perfect solution to all the Europeans who love motorcycles, innovation, and the environment.”
