At Europe’s Clean Week 2020 elections, held earlier this month, the 2013 Zero S was voted the European e-Motorbike Of The Year 2013, followed in second place by the Zero DS.

 The Zero S has won the award for the third consecutive year.

A conference aimed at providing an annual review of future-fuelled, environmentally friendly vehicles, the Clean Week 2020 elections brings together a diverse mix from the motoring and motorcycle industry to provide an independent analysis of alternative powered transportation technologies available today.

Some of Europe’s top journalists were tasked with evaluating all of the candidates, which, granted, isn’t a vastly diverse field yet, though in the end the Zero S came away with top honors at the event.

“We’re honored the Zero S has defended its title again for the third year. With up to 137 miles range in the city, a top speed of 95 mph and a CHAdeMO accessory that allows recharging in around an hour, the 2013 model line is truly exceptional,” said Edwin Belonje, Managing Director for Zero Motorcycles Europe.

In addition, the 2012 Zero S ZF9 recently won an “e-Motorcycle of the Year” title during an online election held by, the leading motorcycle consumer website in Spain, with 533,469 people taking part.
