Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, announced today an Indonesian distribution partnership with Garansindo Technologies. The new distributor, that also represents well known brands such as Jeep, Fiat and Chrysler, will extend their business operations to include a new division within their company that will be solely focused on the distribution of Zero’s premium electric motorcycles.

“Zero Motorcycles will be the first 100% electric motorcycle in Indonesia and we couldn’t be more excited to represent the brand,” said Mr. Muhammad Al Abdullah, CEO of Garansindo. “Zero offers the most advanced production electric motorcycles in the world. The inclusion of the Zero Motorcycles line in our product portfolio will allow us to better support the Indonesian Government by providing the most environmentally friendly two-wheeled transportation solution. In addition, with no routine powertrain maintenance, zero emissions and thrilling performance, we have observed a strong, and growing, demand for Zero among motorcycle enthusiasts. We believe that the Indonesian market is eager to adopt electric transportation.”

“Our new partnership with Garansindo is an integral step for Zero Motorcycles in our expansion as a global company,” said Phillip Wilkinson, Director Sales Asia PAC Zero Motorcycles. “The introduction of our electric motorcycles into one of the world’s leading two-wheel markets is an exciting prospect. Opportunities in the premium motorcycle segment within Indonesia are very promising, and we know that Garansindo will provide an effective channel with which we can service both consumer and fleet customers alike. We are thrilled to form this new partnership and look forward to a successful future with Garansindo.”

Garansindo will offer both 2014 and 2015 models. Using the Z-Force® Power Tank accessory, the 2015 line offers motorcycles that travel up to 298 kilometers in the city. The flagship Zero SR offers the fastest acceleration with 0-100kph in just 3.3 seconds, 144 Nm of torque and an instant 67hp on hand. The industry leading Z-Force® powertrain embodies a philosophy of “sophisticated simplicity” by maximizing the exhilaration of riding and eliminating needless complexity. With instant torque, a nearly silent belt-driven system and no shifting, riders need only focus on enjoying the ride. For the owner, there is no routine powertrain maintenance and the ‘fuel’ cost is only about a penny per mile.

Initial shipments of 2014 models including the Zero SR, Zero DS, and Zero FX models will arrive in November. 2015 models will begin arriving in February. Comprehensive details covering the complete range can be found at http://www.zeromotorcycles.com.
