Zero Engineering. A builder synonymous of vintage, old school styling bikes without any bling, and until now always featuring gooseneck rigid frames and springer front forks. For most of you, the “ZERO” chopper style is only the “Samurai” rigid frame model introduced in the US in 2002 after many years of prior success in Japan. And now, after two years of development, Zero Engineering is launching the Type 9 model featuring a Formula 1 racing inspired Multi-Link Susoension System. As a matter of fact the rear suspension system based on articulating the rear tubes of the frame has been tried with more or less success by several builders on one-off customs. Zero Eng. claims to have perfected the mechanism by mixing articulating tubes with a high-tension shock to deliver incredibly quick and smooth response to the road. Riding a bike with the rigid look appearance but as responsive as a modern rear suspension motorcycle should attract many.
The Type 9 model comes standard with an efficient, reliable S&S Evo engines from 96″ to 124″ in natural and black finishes. and is equipped with a Primo Rivera 5-Speed transmission. Every ZERO Engineering bike is built specifically for each rider. A mild custom paint job is a must and is included with each build. Pegs come in brass, aluminum, or black anodized aluminum. Prices should start at around $28,000 (to be confirmed in about 1 week). PLOT Inc. is the parent company of Zero Engineering and has established itself as a leader in the manufacture and distribution of aftermarket motorcycle parts in Japan. Info at: (702) 798.7504
