Electric motorcycle manufacture Zero Motorcycles creates the first ever mobile phone app that is capable of adjusting motorcycle performance settings. Say what? Yes, you read that right. Zero created Apple iOS and Android mobile phone apps that control top speed, torque, and regenerative braking.
Electric motorcycles are now leading the way against their gasoline counterparts. Creating an easy method to make performance changes will help introduce new tuners. Ease of use especially from the phone in your pocket will change the landscape for performance tuning.
The Zero Motorcycles app marks the first time in history that a production motorcycle’s top speed, torque and regenerative braking can be easily adjusted by an owner in seconds. Not only is it fun, it also results in a riding experience that is truly customized to meet the unique needs of every individual,” said Scot Harden, Vice President of Marketing for Zero Motorcycles. “We encourage interested fans to download the app, play with it in Demo Mode and then schedule a test ride with their local dealer so that they can truly appreciate the Zero Motorcycles experience.”
Once paired to a motorcycle, owners can begin customizing settings and feeling good about a host of compelling economical and ecological reasons to ride electric everyday. Among the customizable settings are fields to enter the owner’s cost of electricity, cost of a gallon of gas and the miles per gallon of their alternative vehicle. To bring a little extra joy to every ride, the app uses this information to calculate statistics, such as how much money has been saved on gas, the unbelievably low cost of energy consumed per mile and how much CO2 has been prevented from being released into the atmosphere.
Gasoline motorcycle manufactures take note as Zero Motorcycles have struck first!
