Strong Demand Fuels Double-Digit Dealer Growth and Additions to Sales Team

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., (March 11, 2015) – Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle industry, announced today that three new regional sales directors have been added to the company’s roster in the first quarter of 2015. The expansion of the sales team comes in response to rapid growth within the dealer network and reflects Zero’s commitment to delivering world-class products and service.

“We are enjoying a great response to our 2015 line of motorcycles and accessories, and it’s driving accelerated growth,” said Mike Cunningham, director of North American sales and dealer development at Zero. “To support and sustain this momentum, we are investing in a bigger, stronger team and partnering with leading motorcycle retailers.”

The new regional sales directors are Eric Gallion, Ron Luttrell and Chuck Schram. Each is a dedicated motorcycle enthusiast and veteran of the powersports industry. Gallion is based in New York and responsible for Zero’s eastern region. Luttrell covers the south from his home office in Atlanta. Schram manages the central region and lives in the greater Minneapolis area.

With electric motorcycles gaining traction and Zero at the forefront, some of the nation’s leading motorcycle retailers are joining Zero’s expanding network. “We have been watching Zero for a while,” said Willie Hodgson, general manager of San Jose BMW in San Jose, California. “With the increased interest from our customers and the advancements Zero has made, we felt the time was right to bring them on board.”

As the motorcycle industry ramps up for the key springtime selling season, the combination of Zero Motorcycles’ unique products, strong service and innovative digital marketing strategy work together to bring more people into Zero dealers. Eric Halladay, owner of SF Moto in San Francisco, California, reports, “The word is out…electric motorcycles are a viable option for an ever-widening range of riders. In just our first month as a Zero dealer, the number of calls and requests for test rides that we get each day has blown us away.”

Jim Dauria, owner of North Miami Motorsports in Florida, recently added the 2015 line of Zero motorcycles to his business. “Since we brought Zero Motorcycles into our dealership, we are seeing customers we otherwise would have never seen, which is extremely valuable to our business,” he said, “They are very enthusiastic.”
