Revolutionary technology meets
innovative motorcycle design

The Road Ahead

Imagine instant torque and power from a standstill. Imagine smooth acceleration as you throttle out of turns. Then, imagine never needing to stop at a gas station or be burdened with any scheduled powertrain maintenance. Not only is this possible… it’s available now.

Developed to aggressively take on urban environments while encouraging occasional detours to your favorite stretch of back country twisties, the Zero S integrates revolutionary technology with innovative motorcycle design.

The result is a high performance motorcycle with one of the lowest costs of ownership ever. Zero Motorcycles’ all-new Z-Force™ power pack and motor are the state-of-the art. The bottom line: the Zero S accelerates hard to 95mph and goes farther than ever before.

Whether stealthily accelerating onto the highway or out of the turns, the Zero S is uniquely designed to deliver a sensation unlike any other on the road today. Are you ready?

“It is also the most fascinating, exciting and original bike I have ridden in many
years and the one I’m most upset to hand back at the end of the test.”
– Bike Magazine
“Shed old ideas about what a motorcycle is, what it does, how it feels, looks and sounds…
That notion about taking your breath away can stay.”
– The Wall Street Journal.
“It’s a go-anywhere moto perfect for exploring.”
“Maintenance plan consists of keeping air in the tires.”

2013 Zero S Upper View

New for 2013

Adding to Exceptional.

The 2013 Zero S is 93% more powerful, generates 62% more torque and yields 20% greater city range. Using a new optional accessory the Zero S can be charged to 95% at CHAdeMO charging stations in an hour or less. Able to travel 137 mi (city), or 85 mi (highway), on a single charge, the Zero S is now the longest range production electric motorcycle in history. It is also Zero Motorcycles’ fastest with speeds of up to 95 mph. Featuring Zero Motorcycles’ completely new Z-Force™ motor and high-voltage power system, the Zero S delivers instant acceleration that is both impressive and incredibly smooth. The sophisticatedly simple, zero-shifting, zero-clutching direct drive powertrain operates with such high efficiency that it requires no mechanical cooling systems whatsoever.

Accompanying the stunning performance gains is a sleek new look, on-board storage, an improved rider interface and mobile device integration. New contemporary bodywork in the ‘tank’ section of the motorcycle now works in cooperation with a new two-up seat, frame and foot pegs to provide improved comfort and control. Nissin brakes as well as passenger pegs are now standard. Offering a new level of personalization, the 2013 Zero S works with mobile devices, via Bluetooth. This allows riders to view a customizable dashboard of detailed riding information and adjust the performance characteristics of the motorcycle.
