Zero Motorcycles has released information about its 2017 electric motorcycles, including its police versions. The company offers three police models that provide nearly silent, exhaust-free operation with minimal heat production and instant torque from zero RPM, according to Zero.

The Zero DSRP has a range of between 58 and 141 miles depending on speed and location, 70 hp, 116 lb.-ft. of torque, and top speed of 102 mph. The Zero DSP has the same range but offers 60 hp and 81 lb.-ft. of torque and delivers a top speed of 98 mph. Both these models come with an optional power tank for additional range.

The Zero FXP has a range of 29 to 79 miles, and offers 46 hp, 78 lb.-ft. of torque, and max speed of 85 mph.

Benefits of an electric motorcycle include “fuel” cost of a penny per mile, maintenance-free powertrain, and nearly noiseless operation for stealth patrols, according to the company. Tactical advantages include greater maneuverability with a lightweight vehicle, instant acceleration from idle, and the ability to ride indoors or in close confines.
