|range||ZERO MMX zf6.5|
A “City” range test is specified to determine riding range during “stop-and-go” operation typically found in urban areas. This estimate is provided following the SAE J2982 Riding Range Test Procedure for On-Highway Electric Motorcycles to provide a reasonable and consistent basis for manufacturers to inform prospective owners of the riding range that can be expected under specified operating conditions. Actual range will vary based upon riding conditions and habits.
|71 miles (114 km)|
|Recon riding||60-160 minutes|
|Aggressive tactical riding||40-140 minutes|
|Max torque||68 ft-lb (92 Nm)|
Peak power the motor can produce for a finite period of time. Actual power output may vary depending on a number of conditions, including operating temperature and state of charge.
|54 hp (40 kW) @ 4,300 rpm|
|Top speed (max)
The top speed is based on the results of government regulated standardized testing known as homologation. Actual top speed may vary according to riding conditions and the battery's state-of-charge.
|85 mph (137 km/h)|
|Top speed (sustained)
The sustained top speed is that which the motorcycle can be expected to hold for an extended period of time. This sustained top speed may vary according to riding conditions.
|70 mph (113 km/h)|
|Acceleration, 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h)
0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) time measured by Zero Motorcycles. Actual times may vary based upon riding and loading conditions.
|Type||Z-Force® 75-7 passively air-cooled, high efficiency, radial flux, permanent magnet, brushless motor|
An electric motorcycle's controller is akin to a gas bike's fuel injection system. It precisely "meters" the flow of electricity from the battery to the motor according to the action of the rider's throttle and surrounding conditions, via a sophisticated map algorithm.
|High efficiency, 420 amp, 3-phase brushless controller with regenerative deceleration|
|Power pack||Z-Force® Li-Ion intelligent modular|
Maximum capacity tends to be the electric vehicle industry’s choice for reporting the maximum amount of energy that can be stored in a vehicle’s power pack.
About kWh : Where gasoline vehicles use gallons, electric vehicles frequently use kilowatt hours (kWh) to measure the total possible ‘fuel’ or energy storage capacity.
Nominal capacity is the most accurate measure of the amount of usable energy that can be stored in a vehicle’s power pack. It differs from maximum capacity because it is calculated using an average voltage that is more often ‘the norm’ rather than a maximum which is rarely seen.
About kWh: Where gasoline vehicles use gallons, electric vehicles frequently use kilowatt hours (kWh) to measure the total possible ‘fuel’ or energy storage capacity.

|Equivalent fuel economy (city)
Electric vehicle fuel economy is measured in Miles Per Gallon equivalent (MPGe) which indicates, via an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribed formula, how far an electric vehicle can go using the same amount of energy as is contained in one gallon of gasoline. Electric vehicles are much more efficient than their internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts. An electric vehicle powertrain can turn above 90% of the energy supplied to it into usable motive power. An ICE powertrain can only turn about 25-30% of its supplied energy into motive power. The result is that an electric vehicle powertrain can operate at over three times the efficiency of its ICE counterparts.
Equivalent Fuel Economy, Highway = (Highway range) / (Power Pack nominal capacity) x 33.7 (EPA kWh per gallon of gasoline)
|417 MPGe (0.56 l/100 km)|
|Typical cost to recharge
This indicates the average cost to recharge a fully drained power pack. More often, riders will be charging a partially drained power pack and will have a lower cost of recharge. The actual cost of recharging will always be dictated by the amount of charge put into the power pack and the cost of electricity flowing from the particular outlet.
