Zero Motorcycles: 2014 a ‘record’ year for sales
Zero Motorcycles announced that it finished 2014 with “record sales and is poised for dramatic growth in 2015.”
The company did not reveal financial numbers, but summarized that it added seven new distributors in 2014 and plans to add others in the next 12 months. In the fleet sales area, more than 50 U.S. police departments are now using Zero motorcycles, including those in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, the company said.
“Our police and authority partners consistently praise Zero patrol motorcycles for their stealth, maneuverability and low maintenance, while the local communities they serve also appreciate the quietness and move to a more sustainable mode of transportation,” said CEO Richard Walker. “We see huge opportunities for continued growth in this area.” “Our business is headed in the right direction and the market is starting to come to us,” said Zero Vice President of Global Marketing Scot Harden. “Recent announcements by some of the larger motorcycle manufacturers, and our own experience, confirms the movement toward electric power is building momentum.”
Zero’s 2015 lineup includes four consumer models, three police/authority bikes and one military spec version. All received major upgrades for the 2015 season. Zero also licenses its powertrain technology for outside commercial applications.
