2014 Zero SR, highly accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1, maybe for sale, stock, very reliable.  I lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Also, a 2001 Honda Helix, black, kept for sentimental reasons.

pasting this here (from the Zero forum)

quote

This is the only place that stocks and sells Vectrix parts: http://vectrixparts.com

For support in the US I'd go to http://vectrixsupport.com

And visforvoltage.com is one of the bigger Vectrix forums online

Yes, David Dugas was very helpful and knowledgeable. He built me a PWM to CAN converter box to use a Vectrix throttle on my Zero but I could never see the CAN messages from the Vectrix throttle and gave up. That Vectrix throttle is just way over engineered and a pain to work with and install. Give ma an analog Magura throttle or Domino any day. Ended up just using a left hand clutch lever and pressure transducer for regen/rear braking control on the street avoiding the awkward reverse twist and trying to reach the front brake at the same time that you need to do when braking hard on the Vectrix.

Yup, I've used vectrixsupport myself for my 2 vectrixes. Made me custom charger software for my Li conversion, plus other advice. David is very helpful and knows his stuff (ex-vectrix engineer).
