GAME CHANGING Z-FORCE® POWER PACK

150+ MI RANGE / 300,000+ MI LIFETIME

The Zero S and Zero SR feature advanced cell chemistry and battery management systems that provide greater capacity and range. Not only does the ZF13.0 power pack enable you to go up to 202 miles, it is also designed to last the life of the motorcycle. The result of cutting-edge research and development, each cell in the power pack is individually controlled and monitored to ensure maximum health. 

 

POWER TANK TECHNOLOGY

UP TO 202 MILES IN THE CITY

The Z-Force® Power Tank adds 3.3 kWh of power pack storage capacity to any 2014 or later Zero S or Zero SR. An optional accessory, the Power Tank can be added at any time during or after motorcycle purchase, bringing the maximum battery capacity to 16.3 kWh. With that much energy, you can travel up to 202 miles in the city or 101 miles on the highway at 70 mph.

 
 

REVOLUTIONARY Z-FORCE® MOTOR

UP TO 70 HP, 116 FT-LB…AND INCREDIBLY EFFICIENT

Zero Motorcycles designed the Z-Force® motor from the ground up to be compact, efficient and powerful. It delivers exhilarating acceleration to a top speed of 102 mph on the Zero SR. Completely air-cooled, the motor provides a fantastic riding experience, minus the need for any regular maintenance. When slowing down, the motor generates electricity that is channeled back into the power pack to help extend ride times.

 
 

FRAME AND BODYWORK

GREAT TO LOOK AT. EVEN BETTER TO RIDE.

Aircraft-grade aluminum is exclusively used in the construction of the twin spar frame. It is lightweight, strong and one of the main reasons that the motorcycles handle incredibly well. Designed to have a low center of gravity, the motorcycles are highly maneuverable and responsive. The refined appearance is completed with sleek bodywork with a contemporary, aggressive and naked look. The tank section of the bodywork features an integrated storage compartment that is both lockable and removable. The tank section can also be replaced with the Power Tank accessory for greater range or the Charge Tank accessory for faster charging.

 

SHOWA SUSPENSION

THE MAGIC RIDE

Zero worked in close collaboration with Showa to develop suspension systems that provide excellent small bump compliance, predictable control of bigger impacts and exceptionally smooth action under all conditions. Torsional rigidity of the front end improves handling, and a hollow front axle reduces unsprung weight. Suspension settings are completely customizable to meet the demands of a wide variety of riders.

 

BOSCH ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)

POWERFUL. PRECISE. CONTROL.

The Zero S and Zero SR feature an advanced Bosch anti-lock brake system (ABS) that improves control in a wide array of conditions and ensures the best braking performance, while a large 320 mm diameter carrier-less rotor increases stopping power.

WHEELS AND TIRES

ROLLING FORWARD

Pirelli tires are standard on the Zero S and Zero SR, providing great traction, excellent durability and road feel. The tires are mounted to stylish and durable cast alloy wheels.

DASH AND CONTROLS
IMPRESSIVE INFORMATION. ELEGANTLY DISPLAYED.

The dash is designed by Zero to quickly and accurately provide useful data on such information as state of charge, power output and your selected riding profile. You can toggle through three riding profiles, using the ergonomic right-hand switch gear, to better meet the needs of your ride: Sport, Eco, Custom. The dash screen features a cool blue backlit LCD display and integrates seamlessly into the front of the motorcycle. Want more information about the motorcycle while riding or at home? Try the Zero Motorcycles App.

 
 

ZERO MOTORCYCLES APP

GET YOUR MOTORCYCLE DIALED

Using the Zero Motorcycles App, you can see detailed information about your motorcycle such as the time until charged, average watts per mile, total charge cycles and much more. When parked, the app allows you to set the custom riding mode’s performance profile by adjusting the parameters for top speed, maximum torque and maximum regenerative braking. While riding, your phone transforms into a customized dash that provides detailed real-time motorcycle information. Synced using Bluetooth, the app works on iPhone and Android mobile devices.

DIRECT DRIVE GEARING

INSTANT TORQUE WITH A TWIST

Featuring clutchless direct drive, the Zero S and Zero SR are geared for rapid acceleration and maximum efficiency. With its higher output motor, the Zero SR achieves a top speed in excess of 100 mph. Without ever needing to shift, both models provide controlled and powerful acceleration until you reach your desired speed. The carbon fiber belt achieves minimal frictional losses for increased overall range and is integral to making the powertrain quiet and maintenance-free.

 
 
 

CHARGE EASILY.
CHARGE ANYWHERE.

TRAVEL UP TO 53 MILES PER HOUR OF CHARGING

From public Level 2 charge stations to your garage, Zero’s charging options are designed to fit your lifestyle. Every Zero comes standard with a simple and lightweight cable that plugs into any household outlet.

For faster charging on the go, Zero offers the Charge Tank accessory. It effectively triples on-board charging speed, allowing riders to recharge their power pack in as little as 2-3 hours at level 2 charging stations. The result is up to 53 miles of riding range for each hour of charging time (based on city range).

For home or office use, Zero’s scalable “Quick Charger” system can dramatically reduce charging times. The system uses up to four stand-alone (off-board) 1 kW chargers that work in conjunction with the motorcycle’s standard (on-board) charger.
