If you happen to live in Colorado and have a hankering for a brand-new electric motorcycle, we have good news. The rest of us... well, we can take a moment to wish we lived in Colorado, at least in time to make our desired zero-emission two-wheeled purchase of choice.
The Colorado Alternative Fuel Vehicle Credit will apply a savings of up to $6,000 to your chosen electric motorcycle, to which you can add another 10 percent credit from the federal government. For those keeping track, that will put the final price of the Zero S or DS at just $4,107 (after a $4,888 tax credit in CO). That will net you a highway-capable machine that can go up to 50 miles per charge. Still too rich for your blood? How about a brand spankin' new Brammo Enertia for just $3,000? We're feeling pretty trigger happy with this news right about now... anybody have a really good friend in Colorado?
