In case you haven't been paying attention to the motorcycle world lately, choppers and rocket bikes are out, and supermoto's and café bikes are in, even more than that, electric motorcycles are coming into vogue and Zero Motorcycles make some of the best. The new Zero S is the street version of an all-electric dirt bike we tested earlier this year called the Zero X. This new bike ditches the dirt and goes for the lightweight, aggressive street carving segment of supermoto's, or motard.

The Zero S is equipped with a brushed permanent magnet electric motor which develops 31 HP and 62.5 ft-lbs torque (at zero RPM), and a lithium ion array battery good for 4 kW, the combo can power the bike to 60 MPH with a range of 60 miles. Consider the power delivery on an electric vehicle and an incredibly light 225 lb curb weight, this thing is bound to be a rocket ship. Price? $9,950, a little spendy for the segment, but at less than 1 cent a mile, it's not too bad. Sign us up. Specs below:
