Woodway have been working together with Zero Motorcycles to help produce a specially developed police version of the electrically powered Zero DS, which has been on show at the 2017 Isle of Man TT 2017.
American company Zero is the market leader in electric motorcycles and the Zero DS combines 110 Nm of torque, which is a near 100mph top speed and a range to empty of over 80 miles in mixed conditions.
The Zero DS is a groundbreaking technology in electric biking, and it is only right they came to Woodway for the lighting and livery on the bike. The bike has been fitted with a Whelen Vertex dome, blue lighting on the front and rear, as well as Whelen TIONs on the side of the motorcycle. Woodway also provided the livery for this bike as well.
The bike had been on patrol from May 27th and 9th June, with the Isle of Man Constabulary trialing the bike for this period, as well as using the bike for PR duties. Constable Andrew Greaves, who rode the Zero DS, commented: “I’ve been very impressed with the Zero and the way in which it performs and handles. It has certainly created a lot of interest. The bike has drawn a crowd wherever we’ve gone and there have been a lot of questions from members of the public. I’ve enjoyed riding the Zero and I can certainly see where the silent running of an electric motorcycle can bring big benefits when out on patrol.”
Private buyers of Zero Motorcycles in the UK are eligible for a £1500 Government grant. For full details of the current Zero range, visit: www.zeromotorcycles.com/eu
