Met police trial Zero electric motorcycle


LONDON'S Met Police have taken delivery of a Zero Dual Sport electric motorcycle for testing.

The Zero DS will be evaluated by the 'Motorcycle Tasking Team' at its roadside tasking sites and will also be using it for actual law enforcement purposes.

The Zero DS has a claimed top speed of 80mph and a range of 112-miles, it costs around £7,500.

Mick Cheeseman, Sergeant in the MotorcycleTasking Team for the Met, said, “The Motorcycle Team is very excited to be given the opportunity to test the Zero DS under everyday police conditions. Much of our work is about giving advice and instruction on keeping motorcyclists safe on London’s roads, and being able to do this on an electric motorcycle means also we can aim to reduce our impact on the environment. The Zero DS is a technologically advanced machine and we look forward to trialling it over the next few weeks to see how it can be used to as a daily part of our police business.”
