Swinton Bikes Reports on Success of Electric Bike Cover

Motorcycle insurance retailer reports steady increase in electric motorbike enquiries

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 15, 2010) - Swinton Bikes, one of the UK's leading motorbike insurance brokers, has seen hundreds of enquiries for their electric motorbike insurance deals since their launch in May last year.

An increasingly popular and powerful option, the new generation of electric bikes are light, economic and fast. One of the latest models, the Zero S Supermoto, delivers zero to 50mph in just five seconds, weighs in at just 122.5 kg and with no clutch and no need to change gears offers bikers a smooth and seriously fun ride.

The bikes also offer environmentally conscious motor-cyclists a 'greener' alternative to their traditional petrol machines. The most recent models deliver only an eighth of the carbon emissions per mile than their petrol powered equivalents and will be fully charged and ready to go after only a few hours hooked up to a standardised domestic power socket.

Anthony Aronin, head of Swinton Bikes said: "It has been very exciting to watch the new electric motorbike models develop, and we are pleased to be able to keep up with the cutting-edge technology by providing competitive cover for the latest electric bike models.

"Judging by the significant number of electric motorcycle insurance enquiries we are receiving every week, there is clearly an appetite for these new machines. Whilst remaining committed to finding our best deals for all bikers out there, we understand the importance of investing in environmentally friendly modes of transport and can offer anyone thinking of investing in this new technology a great quote on all levels of cover."

Swinton Bikes is a division of the Swinton Group and offers great deals on motorcycle insurance for all types of motorcycles from mopeds and scooters right through to sports bikes, tourers and superbikes.
