For those interested in going faster, Zero is introducing the “R” configuration of the Zero S. Capable of speeds over 160 km/h the Zero SR offers 56% more torque and 24% more power. Featuring Zero Motorcycles’ Z-Force® motor and high-voltage power system, the Zero S delivers instant acceleration that is both impressive and incredibly smooth. The sophisticatedly simple, zero-shifting, zero-clutching direct drive powertrain operates with such high efficiency that it requires no mechanical cooling systems whatsoever.
The 2014 Zero S offers riders a number of refinements that are visually impressive and will improve overall riding experience. The front of the motorcycle now features larger 43 mm forks, triple clamps that perfectly integrate with the surrounding componentry and a completely revised dash that elegantly presents riding data. To improve handling, the ground clearance of the Zero S has been raised by 2.5 cm and the torsional rigidity of the chassis has been increased by making the frame, swingarm and front end more robust. In addition, the suspension has been refined for a more comfortable ride and the brake system now offers more stopping power and control. From the redesigned chin fairing to the seamlessly integrated dash, the 2014 Zero S is a beautifully designed machine that makes the experience of riding electric even more exhilarating than ever before.
