The 2014 Zero SR with a Power Tank has the most range of any electric bike. But what’s it like to ride? I rode it everywhere, and these are my thoughts.

Last Sunday marked the Fifth Annual Refuel Races, a time trial race (track day, really) for EV’s, hosted by Speed Ventures. I’ve wanted to return to Refuel at Laguna Seca, but not on a bike as weak as the one I was able to procure when I went in 2010. Full story here. I wanted a bike that would do Laguna Seca, aka Motorcycle Heaven, justice. Zero told me all their press bikes were at Pike’s Peak. Hollywood Electrics only had their prized custom available, but I really didn’t have time to even pick it up. So I took my own electric motorcycle.
Sign up is now open for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to drive or ride YOUR electric vehicle on one of the world’s greatest racetracks. Register for REFUEL and you too can dive into the corkscrew like Rossi or take the Andretti hairpin like Mario himself.
Dwell on Design hosts the Los Angeles stop of the 2011 Green Car Tour this weekend! I just realized that most of my gearhead friends aren’t necessarily also interior design fans. So you might not know that this weekend, in downtown Los Angeles, you can test drive a broad range of eco cars, everything from the Mitsubishi Miev to the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.
