Zero Motorcycles Moves To New Location Due To Growth
Anyone who questions the future of electric motorcycles may want to take a look at Zero. The California-based company is moving its corporate and manufacturing headquarters to a new 47,000 square-foot location in Scotts Valley, California to meet demand.
The new location is 26% larger than the company’s previous Scotts Valley location, and allows the engineering and manufacturing teams to continue working together in the same building.
“Zero Motorcycles has experienced exceptional growth and advancements over the past three years,” states Richard Walker, CEO of Zero Motorcycles. “The all-new 2013 model line-up is generating significant interest among consumers and fleet managers alike and this new location will provide the company with much more flexibility to respond to this increasing level of interest throughout the remainder of 2013 and in coming years. The layout of the new location is much better suited to manufacturing and should allow us to scale rapidly as demand increases, not to mention provide a much nicer working environment for our staff.”
While Zero says consumer demand is on the rise, it has also received considerable attention for fleet applications. Indeed, during Motorcycle.com’s annual trip to Laguna Seca for the MotoGP races, we noticed the local Monterey police aboard specially-equipped Zero units.
