Police To Start Using Electric Motorcycles

Electric-motorcycle maker Zero Motorcycles has launched a line of 2012 Zero DS bikes designed specifically for police patrols and security agencies. The company says it has been working with security agencies for two years, and this bike is the fruit of that labor.

The Zero DS comes in 6-kilowatt-hour or 9 kilowatt-hour configurations and is rated by the EPA at 70 or 112 miles on a single charge. It has a top speed of 80 mph and features regenerative braking to recoup energy during deceleration.

Charge time varies but a on a standard outlet it should take about 8-9 hours, with the quick-charge kit it takes half that time. It’s rated to 3,000 complete charges before the battery can be recharged only to 80 percent capacity.
