Zero Motorcycles and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have issued a voluntary recall notice for all 2009 Zero X and Zero MX electric motorcycles. Apparently, the problem surrounds the bike's throttle assembly, which can reportedly become disconnected or get stuck in the wide-open position. Either way, that can potentially be very dangerous to the rider.

While we have had the opportunity to ride both the Zero X and the Quantya Track, our time and terrain with the electric motocross machines were relatively limited. Not so for Dirt Rider Magazine. The publication had both bikes in their possession for an extended period and thoroughly put the pair through the wringer. The fact that they returned them to their respective companies in one piece says a lot for the quality of both brands.

In the first battle royale between the all-electric motocross bikes from Quantya and Zero Motorcycles, it appears that Swiss precision has bested American muscle. Each manufacturer sent 5 bikes to compete in a special electric event at the AMA/Maxxis MiniMoto Supercross race and when all the laps were run and the dust settled, Quantya rider Brian Roth owned the top podium position with teammate David Lodermeier in firm possession of second. Blake Mitchell, who we've seen ride the X before, saved

It's on now. The Quantya Track and the Zero X all-electric dirtbikes plan to meet up in Las Vegas this Friday and we're pretty sure the rendezvous has nothing to do with getting married by Elvis and everything to do with racing. The two companies are each sending five bikes to Sin City where they will do battle at the Orleans Arena during the half time show of the AMA/Maxxis MiniMoto Supercross race.

Having a motocross bike that can carry you through the woods with a certain amount of stealth might be rather advantageous for riders who would prefer not scare off all the wildlife in the vicinity. While the Zero X from Zero Motorcycles can do this quite well, the only color available thus far has been the rather conspicuous white, but it seems they might have something coming that's a little more apropos for the hunters (or photographers) out there. Behold, the Zero X in camo! (pictured above.

Zero Motorcycles, makers of electric off-road motorcycles, is planning to release its first street-legal machine next month. Speaking on Fox Car Report Live, company founder Neal Saiki let out a few intriguing details about the company's new Zero S electric supermoto bike, including the fact that it will sport 3kWhs of battery capacity. That's a whopping 50 percent more than the lithium ion unit that the firm uses in its Zero X dirtbike. Of course, batteries are heavy, so it's not surprising to

Imagine this. You are on your Zero X electric motorcycle enjoying a brisk ride along your favorite wooded trail. You reach a clearing and in the morning mist you are surprised to find a family of space aliens enjoying a quiet picnic in front of their parked UFO. Not wanting to learn the hard way whether these are the harmless variety or the type to have lots of "probing" questions, you whip your bike around and hit the throttle. Hard. Your front wheel leaves the ground as you silently exit the s

For those you that like to head out into the woods to ride a dirt bike but don't want any exhaust emissions, the Zero X may the answer to your needs.

Jay Leno often gets to try some pretty sweet rides but this week's featured machine was cool AND green. It's not the first electric two-wheeler to drop by the the late-night comedian's automotive haunt but the Zero X electric off-road motorcycle is arguably the coolest. As Jay explains in the video, he likes vehicles that are the result of a singular vision and the Zero X is a perfect example of that. It's creator, Neil Saiki, took 5 years to design and build every millimeter of the bike until h
