Newly revived British firm Hesketh Motorcycles has joined forces with New Vetrix to launch a zero emissions scooter. The Hesketh HZE-Vectrix scooter was designed for the commuter market, with a top speed of 60mph and a range of 50 miles between charges. Its 0-50 time is 6.8 seconds and is powered by a 125v battery, which takes 2.5 hours to charge. Until the launch of this bike, Hesketh (HMC) was best known for producing a small number of machines in the 1980s including the V1000, Vampire and Volcano. When HMC was taken over by Charles Hesketh earlier this year, he stated his intention to move away from its petrol-powered heritage to provide a British branded electric bike. Charles Hesketh, Director of HMC, said. “This is....the world’s first high performance, zero emission, production motorbike". A "...two-wheeled vehicle worthy of the Hesketh brand.” The HZE-Vectrix was marketed as a premium product for the commuter market.

This Hesketh is credibly believed to have been the paddock bike of F1 driver Adran Sutil. With an appearance of an almost new machine, it is a rare survivor of the Hesketh brand and intriguing as such, could make a very interesting piece in a collection of British two-wheeled innovative machines. Produced by Vectrix in 2008. There is no documentation with this lot.
