Zero’s new batteries permit faster charging too. With the 6-kW “Charge Tank” (a $2,295 option) available for the S, SR, DS, and DSR models, users can now take advantage of the J1772 Type 2 charging stations that are becoming common across the country. Plugging into a Type 2 charger improves charge time by a factor of six. That means motorcycles with the ZF7.2 battery can be charged (from drained) in roughly an hour, while the larger ZF14.4 battery can be charged in about two hours. Given the cost of the Charge Tank, we’re not surprised it’s an option. Compared with their fossil-fuel competitors, electrics remain relatively pricey, but we would eventually like to see this tech trickle down as standard equipment, if it continues to be relevant in the rapidly evolving technological landscape of EVs.
