Maybe someone is attending EICMA and can report in? In any case Zero just sent out a press release and posted pictures for their 2012 electric motorcycle line-up. It looks exciting, and I've reposted the press release here:-
Summary:- The street models a) all now use belt drive b) speeds up to 88 miles/hr c) range up to 100 miles with a 9 kilowatt-hour battery pack. All their bikes now use brushless motors and in one of the pictures I believe I spied a MARS motor. In the past they've used PERM motors and more recently Agni motors, both of which are brushed DC, so a move to a brushless motor is a good thing.
