2011 Zero S pulls a stoppie on a pier - Click above to watch video after the jump

Zero Motorcycles has just unveiled its lineup for 2011, and while the model names remain the same, the changes in each are striking. The company seems to have done a good job of listening to customer feedback and have rethought and reengineered their entire range. The bikes that begin shipping in March will not only have upgraded brakes, wheels and other components, they will also all be capable of charging in half the time with an optional J1772 connecter that is now the public charging station standard. And that's just for starters.

Both the 2011 trail-riding X and its more hardcore brother, the MX, are now available in fully-homolugated street versions with lights, mirrors and different gearing for higher speeds. The MX has been given a beefier Agni motor and is good for 57 miles per hour in full road-going dress. Both still retain the same quick acceleration as their dirt-bound brothers.

The dual-sport and street machines from Zero have their own surprises. Both the DS and S are now quieter and require less maintenance, having traded in their chains for a belt drive set up. As well, their batteries have gained 12.5 per cent more capacity and both have an EPA UDDS range of 43 miles with maximum distance listed as 58 miles. The S has also been lowered two inches to enhance its handling.

Don't forget to hit the jump to watch each bike's own (music-free, thank you) video along with three more high-res image galleries and the official press release. If that's not enough to satisfy your curiosty, there is lots more info over at Zero's website.
