Electric Motorcycle Forum is live!
I hate it when that happens. Didn't the same thing happen with Zero's founder? He got the boot by the new owners, but he did have the grace and good sense to just leave and move on to other pursuits, rather than try to sue someone. You live longer that way.
A trim man with a passion for rock climbing and samurai swords, Saiki sold his house in 2006 to start Zero Motorcycles, a pioneering manufacturer of electric cycles in Santa Cruz. In a management shake-up last year, he left Zero, saying he wanted to spend more time with his four children ages 1 to 11. He also announced — unsurprisingly, to those who knew him — that he intended to build a human-powered helicopter."I've always wanted to go back and have another try at it," Saiki said. "Now I've got the time, and I don't have the day-to-day financial pressures."
So has he given up on his cargo bike?http://electricmotorcycleforum.com/boards/index.php?topic=3209.msg16527#msg16527IIRC he posted on EMF a while ago about this venture.
The 2014 Zero SR ZF14.2 weighs 444 pounds.
