Zero Motorcycles offers a range of police and security models with customizable options to meet the specific needs of a wide variety of patrol applications. Over 30 government agencies from the USA, Europe, South America and Asia have integrated Zero Motorcycles into their patrol fleets.
With the ability to cover both on and off road areas, Zero Motorcycles police and security models present unique advantages over internal combustion driven machines. They are highly maneuverable and ideal for patrolling a diverse range of areas: urban centers, city streets, tight quarters, parks, beaches and dirt trails. The 100% electric powertrain is nearly silent, exhaust free, produces minimal heat, has instant torque from zero rpm and is essentially maintenance-free.
With a ‘fuel’ cost of about a penny per mile, and maintenance cost reductions of up to 85%, a patrol fleet of Zero motorcycles saves police and security agencies time and money, while providing a tactical advantage. In certain regions, grants and incentives may be available specifically for both public and private organizations when purchasing electric patrol vehicles.
Zero Motorcycles engineered the patrol lineup from the popular Zero S, Zero DS and Zero FX motorcycles. Beginning with already robust and proven platforms,
Zero customizes each to meet the demands of law enforcement, security agencies, firefighting departments, and more. The Zero SP is designed for street use. The Zero DSP is a dual sport model designed for both on and off road use.
2015 fleet motorcycles benefit from the same features found on the industry leading consumer models. At the core is the Z-Force motor and power pack system. The brushless motor is sealed to ensure longevity and operates with such high efficiency that it requires no external cooling systems. Using state-of-the-art cell technology and advanced battery management systems, each motorcycle can travel farther, faster, and last longer. With the optional Z-Force Power Tank, the Zero SP is capable of traveling nearly 180 miles within the city.
Advanced Bosch ABS (anti-lock braking system) is now standard on all police and security models. The system can be switched on or off depending upon the rider’s preferences. Further refinements provide incredibly smooth actuation for improved control under extreme braking, better modulation and increased stopping power.
All 2015 fleet models are equipped with Showa front and rear suspension. Close collaboration between Showa and Zero created a system that provides excellent small bump compliance, predictable control of bigger impacts, and exceptionally smooth action under all conditions. Torsional rigidity of the front end has also been increased for improved handling, and a hollow front axle reduces unsprung weight. Suspension settings are now fully customizable to meet the demands of a wide variety of riders.
Increased energy density within the Zero SP and Zero DSP batteries offers 10% more capacity, extending Zero Motorcycles’ class-leading range. Equipped with the optional Power Tank accessory, a remarkable range of 178 miles is achievable within the city. Riders will also notice new mirrors with excellent rearward visibility while reducing motorcycle width, comfortable new grips, a newly contoured seat on the Zero SP and Zero DSP for improved ergonomics, and four way flashing hazard lights.
