I hope you got an ES Doctorbass *discount* on your demo too! You deserve it.

Btw, since we are waiting for your review, etc. can you tell us what is the battery manufacturer & chemistry & rating per cell of the Zero cells?
Do you know what manufacturer & chemistry & rating per cell is used for the 2012 Zero?
The 2012 supposedly got spec'd with a Korean source, so it would be interesting to compare "cell specs" between both year models.
Yeah i got it for a great price and will also be proud to promote the zero products the most as possible!
From the begining of the zero and up to the 2011 model, these was using the Molicell IMR26700 cells ( nearly the same cylindrical format than the A123 2.3Ah)
These Molicells brand are LiMn chemistry of 3.8V nom and 2.9Ah and weight nearly 100g each.
The new zero are using the EIG brand lithium polymer safe cells. and their format is pouch It is Luke that designed them with all his great talent and i also believe that this is that great contribution from him that really help pushing the new 2012 zero motorcycle performances to a level where they are now really competitive in the market!
There is 216 cells of the brand EIG and model C020 NMC
3.65v 20Ah pouch cells
Total capacity 7.9 kWh nominal.
I saw the cells in the interior of these new 2012 zero battery in the iphone of the Canada sales manager. They are really compact pouches!!... the interior look like a big bank of many super big RC lipo pouch!!
