Zero Motorcycles   MMX Electric for US Special Forces

The U.S. Special Forces naturally place a premium on stealth for their covert operations, so it’s no surprise that the military organization has called on http://zeromotorcycles.com/” target=”_blank”>Zero Motorcycles to create an electric machine that delivers unique tactical advantages over a traditional combustion motorcycle. Based on the Northern Californian outfit’s MX model, the 2013 Zero MMX Military Motorcycle features keyless ignition, a military spec dash with centralized mainline controls, switchable headlights for nighttime stealth and a pre-wired setup for front and rear infrared systems. A fully adjustable suspension allows travel over any kind of terrain, including wet operational abilities in up to one meter submersion. Power comes from an all new Z-Force motor, producing 54 ponies and 68 lb-ft of torque, with performance characteristics adjustable via Bluetooth and a smart phone enabled with the Zero Motorcycles mobile app. According to Zero Motorcycles, much of the technology it developed for the military will find its way to the brand’s off-road MX, FX and XU civilian models.
