Michael Szymborski of Pickerington, Ohio, is the winner of the 2016 Zero DSR electric motorcycle awarded as part of the 2016 AMA Club 1924 Motorcycle Sweepstakes. The 32-year-old AMA member entered the sweepstakes at an AMA Bike Night at the association’s Pickerington, Ohio, campus.
“You’ve got to be kidding,” Szymborski said when told he won. “It’s pretty amazing. I didn’t think I had any chance at it. I’ve been following Zero for a long time and have been interested in the motorcycles and what they do. I didn’t think I had any shot at it, so I’m really excited.”
The Zero DSR is an amped-up version of the Zero DS, delivering 56 percent more torque and 25 percent more power. A 660-amp controller is paired with a Z-Force motor with higher temperature magnets to ensure better performance during extended durations at higher speeds.

The Zero DSR boasts 106 pound-feet of torque on demand and a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds. Its custom-tuned Showa suspension and Bosch anti-lock brakes make it equally at home on pavement or dirt.

“We are proud supporters of the AMA and delighted to be part of the AMA Club 1924 effort this year,” said Todd Andersen, Zero’s VP of Marketing, Sales and Aftersales. “We wish Mr. Szymborski a lifetime of exciting new riding adventures on his Zero. The Zero DSR is amazing to ride, inexpensive to operate at about a penny per mile in electricity and easy to own with no routine powertrain maintenance.”

AMA Club 1924, named in honor of the AMA’s founding year, is the association’s presence at motorcycling events, celebrating the fun of motorcycling, connecting with riders and looking back on the history of motorcycling in America.
