Off road trail range represents the riding time that most riders can expect to achieve while riding trails. The bottom of the range represents a more aggressive pace, while the top a more relaxed one.
|City (EPA UDDS)|
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Universal Dynamometer Driving Schedule (UDDS) is a standardized test that is used to provide emissions and fuel efficiency data to consumers. The resulting labeling is posted on most ‘for sale’ gasoline vehicles and allows consumers to judge the fuel efficiency of competitive vehicles on an equal plane. Now adopted by the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC), and named “City Driving Range Test Procedure for Electric Motorcycles", Zero Motorcycles uses this newly adopted standard with the hope that other manufacturers will follow suit. For electric motorcycles, this provides interested buyers with standardized information to compare the range of one motorcycle against another.
|38 miles (61 km)|
|Type||High efficiency, Forced air cooled, axial flux permanent magnet, brushed motor|
|Controller||High efficiency, 400 amp, programmable brushed DC controller|
|Top speed||56 mph (90 km/h)|
|Type||Z-Force™ patented Li-Ion intelligent portable power pack|
|Maximum capacity||3.0 kWh|
|Nominal capacity||2.6 kWh|
|Estimated pack life to 80% (city)||103,000 miles (165,000 km)|
|Estimated pack life to 80% (trail)|
This represents the expected life of the power pack, to 80% of its original energy capacity, when the motorcycle is ridden with average aggressiveness on average trails/tracks. An electric motorcycle can continue to function perfectly normal with a power pack that has lost over 20% of its original capacity. The only certain change will be a reduction in maximum range.
|Charger type||1kW, standalone|
|Charge time (standard)||3.1 hours (100% charged) / 2.7 hours (95% charged)|
|Quick 2x charger time (accessory)|
Zero's scalable "quick charge" accessory offerings for 2012 allow Zero S and Zero DS customers to acquire as many as three standalone chargers (in addition to the existing on-board unit) for up to a ~75% reduction in charge time. Zero XU, Zero X and Zero MX customers can choose to add one more standalone charger for a ~50% charge-time reduction. In technical terms, the Zero S and Zero DS have two charge circuits, whereas the Zero XU, Zero X and Zero MX have one, and up to two chargers are allowed in each circuit. For the Zero S and Zero DS, the first "2x" quick-charge accessory adds a charger that plugs into its second charge circuit (the onboard charger is plugged into the first). Additional Zero S and Zero DS charge accessory options (3x and 4x), as well as the single Zero X/Zero MX option, use a “Y” adaptor that allows up to two chargers to plug into a single circuit.
Please keep in mind that most household electricity circuits are rated to 110V/15A, which can only support a single charger. As a result, in order to make use of Zero's quick-charge accessories, you must plug each charger into a separate 110V/15A circuit. If connecting to any other, higher-rated household circuit, you must make sure it can safely support the load of each of Zero's 1,200W input chargers.
