Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

As part of the govern­ment’s drive for us to go green, you can get £1500 back in the form of a grant (20% of the cost of the ve­hi­cle up to a max­i­mum £1500) on an elec­tric mo­tor­cy­cle. Elec­tric bikes pay no road tax and the mo­tor and bat­tery re­quire no ser­vic­ing (the En­er­gica needs its mo­tor’s oil level check­ing). In fact, Zero claim their bat­tery will last the bike’s life­time of nearly 350,000 miles! Aside from swap­ping flu­ids and the ba­sics such as tyres, chain (or belt on the Zero) and brake pads, that’s about it. A full recharge costs be­tween £1 and £2 de­pend­ing on the price of your elec­tric­ity.
