Zero launches all-new SR/F
Zero Motorcycles has introduced their new SR/F, coined as their most innovative and powerful motorcycle yet. The new street fighter electric model boasts 140 ft-lbs of torque and 110 horsepower. The bike is powered by Zero’s new ZF75-10 motor and ZF14.4 lithium-ion battery. A single charge delivers up to a 200-mile range with the addition of Zero’s Power Tank (available fall 2019). The SR/F is the first fully “smart” motorcycle due to its Cypher III operating system. The system gives the rider the ability to monitor the bike in four main areas: Bike Status and Alerts, Charging, Ride Data Sharing, and System Upgrades and Updates. We are excited to see more electric model offerings on the market and we’re eager to see how they continue to improve and expand in the coming years. Read More.
Slingshot Offering $50 Credit for Test Ride
Polaris’ Slingshot has just announced a new program called “Rev-n-Roll”, allowing consumers to test drive one of their units (at specified Slingshot dealerships) to receive a $50 Live Event Credit Voucher. This program will run through April 30th and the voucher can be used for sporting events, concerts, theater shows, and more. This deal from Slingshot sounds almost too good to be true, but the company says with spring approaching, they want to give more consumers the opportunity to experience all that Slingshot models have to offer riders. We love these units and we’re interested to see the participation in this program and how it will potentially increase sales. Read More.
