ZOLDER, BELGIUM (June 2, 2011) – Zero Motorcycles recently announced that their Zero S electric motorcycle received the prestigious “e-Bike of the Year” award at Europe’s Clean Week 2020. During the four-day event, a panel of 13 leading European motorcycle journalists evaluated electric motorcycles from around the world. Ultimately, the Zero S was awarded with top honors and became the first electric motorcycle to win the newly created category title. Dubbed “the ecological heart of European mobility,” Clean Week 2020 is an annual gathering that demonstrates advancements in electric and hybrid vehicle technology.
“The team at Zero has worked incredibly hard to develop electric motorcycles that consumers can own today that set the bar in performance, quality and overall riding experience. We are extremely proud to have been recognized as the winner by the Clean Week 2020 journalists,” said Scot Harden, Vice President of Global Marketing for Zero Motorcycles. “This award highlights the innovation and enjoyment that Zero Motorcycles is bringing to owners around the world.”
