While I still don't think they are the most attractive bikes by a long shot, Zero's new models certainly look a lot nicer than the previous generation, and as far as take-up and resellers go, they seem to have quite a jump on the rest of the manufacturers.

Young gun Troy Herfoss is on his way to the USA today to compete in rounds 2/3/4 of the AMA Supermoto Championships.

Finishing his first two motos in 9th and 5th place secured him 7th overall in the championship after round 1 held at the California Speedway back in April 29, 2006.

The next round will be held at the Road America circuit, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on June 3rd, 2006.

AMA Supermoto comes to Road America’s Briggs & Stratton Motorplex

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (May 30, 2006) -- Doug Henry surprised himself with a pair of victories in the AMA Supermoto Championship presented by Parts Unlimited season opener in Fontana, Calif., in April. The Graves Yamaha rider hopes to continue his remarkable comeback as the series gets back underway at Road America’s Briggs & Stratton Motorplex this Saturday, June 3 in Elkhart Lake, Wis.

Henry is no stranger to making comebacks from injury. In 1995 Henry broke his back in a terrifying motocross crash at Budd Creek, Md., while dueling with Jeremy McGrath for the lead. Doctors said Henry would never race again, but come back he did. He won the AMA Motocross Championship in 1998. A year ago at Road America Henry beat World Supermoto Champ Thierry Van den Bosch in one of the most exciting AMA Supermoto races yet. But two rounds later he suffered a bad crash at the Copper Mountain, Colo., race and injuries forced him to miss the rest of the season.
