Dealership insurance has historically taken care of these cases, not rider insurance. That's my point. Even people who obviously were at fault due to extreme recklessness were still covered under dealer insurance

I doubt it's a dealership that only sells Zero motorcycles

So why even bring up a throttle response issue?

Pretty sure I've signed documents every time I've been on test rides but I can't recall what liability terms were covered.

I know the OP claims that, but Repth is not the OP.
I've test ridden a Zero. The issue is that if you give the bike throttle, it will respond

I honestly liked the bike, and zero is offering a $1000 "gas" card which can be used for anything, that plus $1600 federal tax credit means I'm not overall too sad. It's all bogus damage that I wouldn't mind keeping as-is when I purchase. That and getting it financed at 2.99APR through a personal loan which I will be using for this and also refinancing some student loan debt which currently sits at 6.8APR. It's going to work out ok.
more details I want one. whats the otd?
