2015 Zero DS Electric Motorcycle
Stealthily pass from the
wild to the civilized

Bypass the Ordinary

The Zero DS combines innovation with passion to deliver the world’s most versatile electric motorcycle. Designed to be agile in the dirt and quick on the street, the Zero DS represents a new kind of freedom.

Blast down a gravel road or a dusty trail. When you’re ready, stealthily pass from the wild to the civilized as you arrive at your destination. The Zero DS is tough when you demand it and distinguished when required. Its edgy yet sophisticated appearance is highlighted by an eye-catching twin-spar frame that is both rigid and lightweight.

Propelled by the most advanced technology in the industry, the Zero DS is a fully electric motorcycle that can handle any surface you throw at it. Overcoming obstacles and maintaining control is effortless due to its direct-drive powertrain and fully adjustable suspension. Under technical riding conditions, Zero’s revolutionary Z-Force® motor delivers astonishing responsiveness with the twist of your wrist. As with Zero’s entire model line, the 2015 Zero DS offers a liberating ownership experience with its maintenance-free powertrain, penny per mile ‘fuel’ cost and powerful acceleration.

“It is also the most fascinating, exciting and original bike I have ridden in many
years and the one I’m most upset to hand back at the end of the test.”
– Bike Magazine
“Shed old ideas about what a motorcycle is, what it does, how it feels, looks and sounds…
That notion about taking your breath away can stay.”
– The Wall Street Journal.
“It’s a go-anywhere moto perfect for exploring.”
“Maintenance plan consists of keeping air in the tires.”
– Wired Magazine

New for 2015

The evolution of extraordinary

Agile in the dirt and quick on the street, the Zero DS represents a new kind of freedom…freedom from gasoline, noise, and frequent maintenance. For 2015, the world’s most versatile electric motorcycle expands its boundaries even further. Showa suspension delivers enhanced comfort and control, both on and off road, perfectly complementing Pirelli MT-60 enduro tires. Longer adventures are now available thanks to 10% increased battery capacity, extending Zero Motorcycles’ class-leading range up to 274 km in the city.

Advanced Bosch anti-lock brakes (ABS) improve safety in a wide array of conditions, ensuring the best performance from newly tuned hydraulic ratios. Of course, ABS can be disabled when the adventure leads off road. Riders will notice stylish mirrors that provide excellent rearward visibility and reduce motorcycle width. Comfortable new grips are made of a softer rubber compound, and a more robust throttle seamlessly controls the Z-Force® motor’s instantaneous torque.
