The Zero S is an entry-level electric motorcycle designed for street riding. The SR is another road-specific electric sibling that is claimed to offer the longest range of the Zero lineup (claimed 112 highway miles). The S comes with the ZF7.2 battery and the SR is equipped with the ZF14.4. Electric machines drop down some substantial torque and such is the case with the SR’s Z-Force motor that produces up to a claimed 116 pound-feet. Another added benefit of going electric? Limited maintenance (no chain replacement, no oil changes, no spark plugs, etc.). Going electric can be pretty easy with these models.
Interested in going electric? Other charged models include Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire and Cake’s street-legal motorcycles, the Kalk& and Kalk Ink SL. Zero also offers a wide range of various models, including the more-premium SR/F and fully faired SR/S models, as well as dual sport platforms. Energica is another leading EV motorcycle manufacturer that offers several platforms.
As covered in our First Look, the SR gets a price drop, new colorway, and upgrade to the bigger 14.4 kWh powerpack as well as series-wide improvements to the Cypher operating system. An updated app and upgraded level of connectivity is also seen on all models.
