I don’t really support “off road” as a recreational option, too much erosion and habitat disruption usually ensues. This Zero X motorcycle from Zero Motorcycles does, however, show a trend toward quieter, low emissions vehicles for both on- and off-road use. The bike is not a retro-fitted conventional bike but a lightweight (140 lbs.) electric bike, built from the ground up. Zero X is said to accelerate from 0 to 30 in 2 frightening seconds. The power pack is non-toxic and recyclable, the bike’s fast-charger gets the job done in 2 hours and the bike creates less than one tenth of the pollution of a gas-powered motorcycle at the power plant.
