The lineup of 2013 Zero Electric Motorcycles ($9,500-$16,000) bucks this trend by offering an average power increase of 99 percent, thanks to a new Z-Force motor that's more powerful and efficient. Other improvements include higher-voltage power packs, faster charging, mobile phone integration, new bodywork for the Zero S and DS, the new FX urban cycle with modular power packs, and a new title for the S: "World's longest-range production electric motorcycle."
We're not sure how we'd describe the opposite of chrome, but we can tell you that the Hammarhead Ninety-Two Motorcycle ($16,500) personifies the idea. This sparse, black bike is based on an '07-'08 Triumph Bonneville, powered by an 865cc Twin engine, and sports custom intakes, Keihin FCR carbs, a Zard exhaust, an aggressive suspension, spoke wheels, marine-grade materials for the fenders and seat, and plenty of similarly rugged matte black paint.

Merging the convenience of electric with the looks of a classic, the Faraday Porteur Bike ($3,500) manages to straddle the line between the two with grace. Has a large front rack that can hold 30 pound loads — or more than enough to carry your dinner and beers from the grocery store to your home.
