Zero DSRP police/authority

2018 Zero dsrp

The Zero DSRP is Zero’s most popular police motorcycle. A high-output, 775-amp, controller is paired with an upgraded Z-Force® motor to deliver stunning acceleration and vanquish trails or paved roads. Easy to control in the dirt and nimble on the streets, the Zero DSRP’s generous suspension travel and dual-purpose tires allow riders to traverse just about anything.

All of Zero’s fleet models provide unique advantages over traditional gas-powered bikes. They are virtually silent, lending the element of surprise while not disturbing the peace. With a “fuel” cost of about a penny-per-mile and the 100% electric powertrain requiring no routine maintenance, the Zero DSRP saves time and money.

What’s New for 2018

  • Charge at up to 146 kilometers per hour using the 6 kW Charge Tank at Level 2 charging stations, 6x faster than when using standard, Level 1, 110 V outlets.
  • Travel 10% farther, up to 315 km per charge, courtesy of improved chemistry in the Z-Force® power pack, the highest energy density battery in today’s transportation industry.
  • Owners can easily realize the benefits of continuous performance advancements by updating their firmware via the latest Zero Motorcycles mobile app.

Max capacity

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.

The Formula:
Maximum kWh = (# of cells) * (cell Amp-hour capacity rating) * (cell max voltage rating)

14.4 kWh18.0 kWh
Nominal 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.

Charge time (standard)

Typical charge time using the motorcycle's on-board charger and a standard 110 V or 220 V outlet.

Note that charge times to 95% are referenced for two reasons. First, with normal use, it’s rare that a power pack would be discharged to 0%. Second, "topping off" from 95% to 100% takes 30 minutes, regardless of charging method, in order to maximize battery capacity.

 » With Charge Tank option
The Zero S, Zero SR, Zero DS, and Zero DSR can charge up to 6x faster than when using standard, Level 1, 110 V outlets. This breakthrough comes your way courtesy of a game changing 6 kW Charge Tank option. The technology makes it possible to power up a Zero S or Zero DS ZF7.2 in about one hour, or larger batteries in about two hours using Level 2 charge stations.

 » With one accessory charger

Zero's scalable charging accessories allow customers to add multiple standalone chargers (in addition to the existing on-board unit) for up to a ~75% reduction in charge time, depending on the model and year.

Zero Motorcycles generally recommends that only one charger be plugged into one circuit, including the motorcycle's on-board charger. Plugging multiple chargers into a single circuit risks drawing too much power, thereby activating the source's circuit breaker.

Some household circuits—including many in Europe—operate at high enough capacities to power multiple chargers. It is the customer's responsibility to first verify that any given power source is rated at high enough output to safely support the load of a charger or chargers.

Zero motorcycles' on-board chargers draw up to 1500W (Zero DSRP) or 800W (Zero FXP). Off-board accessory chargers draw up to 1200W.

Economy
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.

The Formula:
Equivalent Fuel Economy, City = (EPA UDDS range) / (Power Pack nominal capacity) x 33.7 (EPA kWh per gallon of gasoline)

Equivalent Fuel Economy, Highway = (Highway range) / (Power Pack nominal capacity) x 33.7 (EPA kWh per gallon of gasoline)

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.

The Formula:
Typical cost to recharge = (Average consumer cost per KWh) X (Power Pack nominal capacity) / (charging efficiency).
Charging efficiency is 0.94 for all 2013-later models.
