Zero Motorcycles Press Intro | International Motorcycle Show

December 10th, 2013 | by Susanna Schick

Zero had a massive showing again this year, with a central spot on the show floor at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA. As press entered the show we were greeted by a pair of ladies handing us Zero brochures and reminding us not to miss their presentation. Judging by how late most of the paper magazines were to report on these bikes, some even reporting on 2013 models when they're all sold out, you'd have think they missed it last year.


eRoadRacing Indianapolis Race | A Field of Winners

August 18th, 2013 | by Susanna Schick

Unlike the Laguna Seca round, all bikes that started were able to complete this race. Shane Turpin was fastest from start to finish, leading on every lap. No matter how he hard he tried, Bostrom could not get much closer than a few seconds behind Turpin. They're on equal machines, ~$200,000 Brammo RR factory prototypes, simply the fastest, most powerful machines out there this weekend. Coming up in third place was Kenyon Kluge, with a gap that started at about 45 seconds after the first lap and grew with each lap until he finished 2 minutes 11 seconds behind leader Shane Turpin

I interviewed her after qualifying to find out what that was like

eRoadRacing USA Race Results, Round 1: An Unexpected Podium

July 21st, 2013 | by Susanna Schick

Round 1 of the US eRoadRacing series is on the books. Both Eric Bostrom and Shane Turpin were able to best Steve Rapp's track record of 1.33.194 from 2011, an impressive feat considering how much cheaper a Brammo RR is than the near $300,ooo MotoCzysz had spent developing their superbike up to that point. Bostrom's fastest lap in the race was 1.33:012 and Turpin scored the new track record with a 1.32:581 in lap 5, right before his bike gave out
