RIDERS looking for their first taste of electric power can head to their local Zero dealership this weekend for the company’s inaugural demo weekend.
Set to be held at 14 dealerships in the UK and Ireland on 3 and 4 August, the event has been organised to welcome the Zero SR/F into showrooms.
In addition to the firm’s newest model, all dealerships will have a number of other models from the all-electric range for riders to try their hand at battery biking, including the 11kw S, supermoto FXS and DSR adventure machine.
Zero’s UK Country Manager Dale Robinson, who has been visiting a number of dealers with the new model in hand in recent weeks, admits that while electrics may be new to most, the reception has been overwhelming.
“Already this summer we’ve been touring dealerships and biking hotspots with the SR/F and have been blown away by the response we’ve had,” he said.
“We’re delighted to hold this nationwide demo weekend, our first ever, and look forward to giving hundreds of British motorcyclists their first taste of electric motorcycles.
“Electric motorbikes are new for pretty much all riders and we find that the best way to explain what they are all about is to let people experience the phenomenal smoothness and torque for themselves.
“If anyone is keen to try out an electric bike for themselves, or are just curious and want to find out some more, I would encourage them to come along.”
While appointments are not necessary for the demo weekend, which is scheduled to run 10am-4pm each day, interested riders are advised to contact their local dealership in advance to check availability and ensure they bring along a driving licence and appropriate gear.
