As of now, you can rent “full-size” Zero electric motorcycles at several different Eagle Rider locations. The participating locations are:
- Las Vegas, NV
- Reno, NV
- San Francisco, CA
- Sonoma, CA
- Los Angeles, CA
- Phoenix, AZ
- Miami, FL
Zero Motorcycles Vice President of Sales for the Americas, Mike Cunningham thinks that the extended rental test ride can be an excellent learning experience.
The riding experience of a Zero is fundamentally different than that of any other motorcycle, especially a gas-powered one, but the ownership of an EV is materially different, as well. Taking a Zero home and living with it for a few days may seem like just an extended demo ride, but the impact of the experience on riders is significant.”
Riders choosing a Zero motorcycle rental can also receive a “simulated ownership experience.” What the two companies mean is that if you purchase a Zero after renting one from Eagle Rider, the cost of the rental will be deducted from the bike’s purchase. However, the deduction is limited to $300.
Eagle Rider is equally happy to be renting the electric bikes. Arthur Petersen, Fleet Director for Eagle Rider said:
“For nearly 30 years, EagleRider has been setting the standard in how motorcycle rentals and touring should be done and has always offered the finest selection of American and international brands to riders the world over. Adding Zero to our premium model line-up means we can confidently say we’ll be offering the best electric motorcycles available as part of our fleet selection, as well.”
