Zero S Motorcycle

Zero S Motorcycle

With all the attention going to hybrid cars these days, it's easy to overlook some of the other modes of transportation out there, and some of them are even more economical. The Zero S ($9,950) is a fully electric motorcycle with all of the speed and performance of a gas-powered bike. Designed to be both aggressive on the road and kind to the environment, the Zero S is highly responsive, built by hand from aircraft grade aluminum and powered by the Z-Force, a lithium ion battery that reaches a full charge in under 4 hours. Pushing 31 horses, this bike can go from 0-30 in under 2 seconds, similar to a 250cc gas powered motorcycle, but costs only $0.01/mile to operate. That's what we call efficiency.

  • Vespa GTS 300 Super

    Finally, a Man-Vespa. An update to the popular GTS 250 mid-size scooter, the 2009 Vespa GTS 300 Super ($6,200; March) is the company's most powerful yet. The 300 gets its go from a 22-hp 278cc four-stroke single cylinder, liquid-cooled, electronic injection engine — which should be good for a top speed of around 80 mph and a mpg rating of about 70. The 300 Super also also has new 12-inch alloy rims, double-disc brakes, red suspension covers, new grilles, and lots of cargo room.

  • Honda Fury

    No, that's not a typo. It's really a Honda. With all the chopper styling you could ever want, the Honda Fury ($TBA) grabs you like no other (attainable) production bike we've seen lately. Powered by a 1300cc liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, the Fury is a laid-back beauty with a super-stretched wheelbase, ultra-low 27-inch seat height, rumbly exhaust system, and a fat 200-series rear tire paired with a slim 21-inch front wheel. Chrome, billet, and leather add-on accessories will be available at launch for further customization. [Thanks, Steve]
