SANTA CRUZ, Calif., (May 20, 2015) – Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, announced today that it is lowering prices by $1,350 across its 2015 model line. Seeing its battery costs fall and energy density increase faster than anticipated as it develops successive model years of high performance electric motorcycles, Zero Motorcycles has decided to deliver this increased value immediately to consumers in North America.
“As leaders in this space we believe it is important to pass on the benefits of improved battery technology and our increased scale to consumers as soon as possible to allow more motorcyclists to experience the thrill of electric,” said Richard Walker, Zero Motorcycles CEO. “We’re not here to do things as they’ve been traditionally done in the motorcycle industry. Making this change mid-season to deliver great value to consumers at industry-leading price points, rather than waiting for 2016, is just the right thing to do.”

MILWAUKEE – “Unlock Your World with One Key, Your Ignition Key” is the theme of the new 2015 BOLT(r) lock catalog, which features a wide selection of automotive-grade lock products designed to work with a vehicle’s ignition key, eliminating the need for multiple keys to secure valuable equipment. BOLT’s patented one-key lock technology streamlines key rings by enabling BOLT locks to be permanently programmed so a driver can use a single key no matter how many BOLT locks are used. Once the vehicle ignition key is inserted into the lock cylinder, spring-loaded plate tumblers move up and down until they are matched exactly to that key. The first time the key is rotated, the cylinder is uniquely coded to that key.
