MARENGO, Ill. — Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in electric motorcycle technology, has appointed Randy’s Cycle as the exclusive motorcycle dealership in Marengo, Ill., to carry Zero’s 2012 product line.

The all-new 2012 model line features a revolutionary new powertrain that allows models to exceed 100 miles on a single charge and reach top speeds of up to 88 mph.

Randy’s Cycle will now be able to offer local demo rides on a regularly scheduled basis, and interested buyers can purchase a Zero Motorcycle on-site at their dealership in Marengo.

John Lloyd, vice president of global sales for Zero Motorcycles, said: “Randy’s Cycle is a well-respected motorcycle dealer in Illinois, and we are looking forward to building a long-standing relationship with them. With our recent strides in electric motorcycle technology, the people of Illinois can now purchase a fun, efficient, high-performance electric motorcycle for less than a comparable gas model. It benefits everyone in Illinois, from motorcycle enthusiasts to future generations who will depend less on petroleum and more on building a cleaner environment for all.”

With Zero’s new Z-Force power pack, brushless motor and regenerative braking, the all-new 2012 Zero Motorcycles product line is a great alternative choice to its gas-powered counterpart. With less than $.01 per mile to operate, Zero Motorcycles offers owners a true motorcycle experience while saving on costly gas and virtually all routine powertrain maintenance.

Manufacturer incentives are available as well as current financing options with no down payment and 0 percent interest for 12 months, plus 4.99 percent financing options, both with approved credit.

Zero Motorcycles invites interested motorcyclists to become acquainted with the all-new 2012 product line at Randy’s Cycle, 18307 Beck Road, Marengo, Ill.
