The 2012 Oxford to London Eco-Rally will act as the UK debut of the entirely revamped Zero DS. Zero Motorcycles are confident that the new 2012 Zero DS will strengthen its reputation as the world’s most versatile electric motorcycle. DS stands for ‘Dual Sport’ - designed to be agile in the dirt and quick on the street. The sleek and contemporary new styling is visually distinct from its predecessors. The new powertrain includes a brushless motor capable of 80 mph, new state of the art battery cell technology (over 100 mile range), regenerative braking and a power pack that is designed to last the life of the motorcycle. It is the first mass production electric motorcycle to ever achieve over 100 miles range (EPA UDDS).
In late 2010, the Mayor of Barcelona announced his vision for the city centre to become CO2 and emissions free within four years. A joint project was formed under Cluster Moto with support from the Catalan administration and in collaboration with Barca University. The result is the MIUS electric scooter by Rieju - an alternative for individual lightweight transport. The Rieju MIUS (pronounced 'my us') is one of the most efficient, functional and green urban scooters available for personal or fleet use.
