Zero should change their name too...
« on: October 30, 2013, 11:27:56 PM »


Drop the 'Z' and add an 's' on the end resulting in: Eros

Just a thought.

Carry on...

Heh.

I love my ZF9, but not quite in that way...

Ok Eros will be a bit to weird!

but what I dislike is that Zero will be not easy to "Goggle" because it is a normal word, some Game stuff and now used in the name or title of every EV producer.

It's a pity but Zero can't change it now!

It describes well what they have done in UK and Aaustralia and most likely Canada.

Zero Motorcycles = 0  = none for you.

I very dissapointed,  to loose hope of ever seeing them here in OZ.

Yah, DoctorBass got me thinking along those lines with respect to his Quebec Zero stats coupled with the UK and Australia news.

On another note Brammo has 50K likes while Zero has only 20K on Facebook.

What's up with that?

Those likes are aspirational. Brammo may be delivering a reasonably good electric bike to a tiny fraction of those likers, but the rest of them admire the styling and image. They may not even be motorcycle riders! That's nothing to sneeze at - it's the kind of marketing in sportbikes that goes with the name "Ninja". Zero makes a much more usable and practical product that is mostly accessible (hey, they have an actual dealer network with accessory distribution, even if the international story is... challenging), but doesn't market themselves with that snazzy image. I'll take the Zero over the Brammo for my garage.

My aspirational "like": E-Tracer. :D

people "liking" your product does not translate into sales if the public cannot afford it
