Zero Motorcycles launched its Zero DS, a dual sport electric bike (MSRP: $9,950), which features an aircraft-grade aluminum frame and a lithium-ion battery pack to store power, according to the company.
Currently available in the United States, the bike is made of 100 percent recyclable materials. The Santa Cruz, Calif.-based motorcycle manufacturer says all the bike’s materials are nontoxic and that even the battery pack is landfill-approved.
The motorcycle has a range of 50 miles per charge and can be charged from any standard 110- or 220-volt outlet. The bike reaches speeds of 55mph.
