The Zero's twist-and-go, rocket-like acceleration is far better than a scooter's, and awesome for jetting through gaps in traffic. Quick, lissome handling and light weight make it feel like a bicycle, effortlessly changing direction and carving around obstacles. Duro street tires offer plenty of traction for sport riding, and hold firm while firing out of tight turns. Like a proper supermoto, the Zero S maintains its off-road abilities with ample suspension travel: 8 inches up front, 9 inches in the rear. Firm stock settings give a surefooted feel on the street, but the adjustable Fast Ace fork and Manitou shock can be tuned for any road surface. Unfortunately, the brakes don't match the rest of the bike's performance, lacking the power and feel necessary for more aggressive riding.
