Zero Motorcycles produces some of our favorite electric motorcycles. If you've been thinking about trading in your current bike and going electric, the company is currently offering a sweetener to make that transition more appealing.

Zero just announced a Cash for Carbon program in which they'll add $1,500 above the value of the trade-in on any gas-powered motorcycle. Pairing that with a $2,500 federal tax incentive on e-motorcycles provides a $4,000 total discount.

There's one catch" You can't use the discount for any Zero Motorcycle. The promotion is only valid for the premier SR/S and SR/F models, which can be pricey. The cheaper SR/S starts at just under $20,000, though saving $4,000 does reduce the price dramatically.

You'll also have tp move on the deal fairly quickly: Zero Motorcycles' Cash for Carbon program lasts only through August 15, 2020.
