Summary: CNET News reporter Mats Lewan takes the brand new Zero S electric motorcycle for a test drive in downtown San Francisco. Currently, electric scooter-style and offroad bikes can be used on the streets. But the Zero S can reach up to 60 mph, and its creator, Zero Motorcycles, says it's the first electric high-performance street motorcycle that's ready to ship.

    I think electronic vehicle might save the earth but it
    would not be as efficiency as fuel enery.

    If needed a solar panel can be mounted on the tail peace of the bike so that when parked it can be recharged. Apart from this I think it is great technology and will hit the sunny parts of the country rather then places like the UK. 10.000USD and the battery costs 5000 USD maybe this needs to be relooked at.
