Electric motorcycle – police version

zero electric motorcycle police vrsion
The Zero electric motorcycle now has a police version which, because it is ultra quiet, is good for riding in parks in populated areas without disturbing those in nearby homes and is also good for sneaking up on people

Range is 125 miles in the city and 75 on the highway which is tolerable for what essentially is a fleet vehicle. Plus it has a fast charger. But still, that is a rather limited range. Electric vehicles, in my view, will probably end up thriving in a mostly niche mode as city transportation cars and delivery vehicles.
