Quantya will take on Zero Motorcycles in an electric dirt bike race this Friday. Five Quantya Tracks will race five Zero Xs in an exhibition race during AMA/Maxxis MiniMoto Supercross in Las Vegas. We’ve ridden both bikes and, unless Quantya brings the rumored upgraded powertrain, Zero is going to walk away with an easy victory. The 2009 Zero X makes 50lb/ft of torque and weighs just 151lbs; the Quantya makes, sans upgrade, only 23lb/ft and weighs
205 195lbs. In our experience, the Zero X’s lightweight components don’t sacrifice ability. We’ll bring you more on Friday.
