Zero FX electric motorcycles ride the Rubicon trail [video]

Rubicon trail ZeroZero Motorcycles released today a video of its R&D team riding down the tough Rubicon trail with Zero FX’s. The company didn’t add any music to the video, which is clever because it highlights how quiet the bikes are…


Five riders from the Zero Motorcycles R&D crew tackled the famous Rubicon Trail in October. All five completed the rugged off-road trip, becoming (as far as we know) the first to do so on electric vehicles. Bonus points for accomplishing the feat on essentially stock Zero motorcycles. All in the name of “product testing”.

Congrats to Jamie, Josh, Micah, Luke and Kyle! And, a tip of the helmet to the Zero FX for its trail worthiness (the motorcycles each finished with about 50% battery remaining).

Last month, we reported on Zero’s recent unveiling of its 2016 lineup, which includes 2 new models. See the article below for all the details and photo galleries:
