2017 Zero MMX Electric Motorcycle
range ZERO MMX ZF6.5
City
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.
114 km
Recon riding 60-160 minutes
Aggressive tactical riding 40-140 minutes
Motor
Peak torque 106 Nm
Peak power
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.
46 hp (34 kW) @ 4.300 rpm
Licensing Requirement
Licensing requirements for petrol motorcycles are based on max power and displacement, according to EU Directive 2012/36/EU. Corresponding requirements for electric motorcycles are based on continuous power and a related power-to-vehicle-weight ratio.

If an electric motorcycle's continuous power is below 35 kW (and power to weight ratio does not exceed .2kW/kg), then it can be ridden with an A2 licence.

Zero’s 11 kW models comply with A1 licensing by being restricted to 11 kW of continuous power, measured according to the required test procedures in IEC 60034-1, and resulting in <0.1 kW/kg. Regulations may vary. See dealer or local licensing authority for details.

A2 Licence
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.
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.
121 km/h
Type Z-Force® 75-5 passively air-cooled, high efficiency, radial flux, interior permanent magnet, brushless motor
Controller
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, 550 amp, 3-phase brushless controller with regenerative deceleration

Power pack Z-Force® Li-Ion intelligent modular
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)

6,5 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.

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:
Nominal kWh = (# of cells) * (cell Amp-hour capacity rating) * (cell nominal voltage rating)

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 (3,78 l) of gasoline)

Equivalent Fuel Economy, Highway = (Highway range) / (Power Pack nominal capacity) x 33.7 (EPA kWh per gallon (3,78 l) of gasoline)

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.

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.
