2018 Zero MMX
In almost every way, an electric motorcycle is well suited for military applications. They are quiet, have low heat profiles, emit no exhaust, are simple to operate and incredibly fast. With this in mind, Zero Motorcycles developed a program that is specifically designed to meet the needs of military applications. Working alongside military personnel, Zero Motorcycles is able to deliver a motorcycle that includes the options and accessories required for a successful deployment and mission.
Perhaps the most covert form of two-wheeled transportation, the motorcycle is completely silent when stopped and can accelerate instantly from 0 rpm. Using Zero Motorcycles’ industry leading Z-Force® powertrain, the Zero MMX features quick swappable power packs, direct drive gearing and an air-cooled motor. With no transmission, powertrain fluids or gas, the Zero MMX is also easy to transport and maintain.
What’s New for 2018
Travel 10% farther, up to 127 km per charge, courtesy of improved chemistry in the Z-Force® power pack, the highest energy density battery in today’s transportation industry.
Thanks to new gearing, and a higher maximum motor rpm, the Zero MMX now offers 11% more rear wheel torque to slingshot ahead of fellow motorists, without giving up any top speed.
Owners can easily realize the benefits of continuous performance advancements by updating their firmware via the latest Zero Motorcycles mobile app.
