not why people buy them. The real reason is that they’re a blast to ride.”
A New Driving Force
By constantly advancing the state of the art, the Zero S and Zero SR not only eliminate gasoline from your daily commute or weekend adventure, they transform into a motorcycle that’s the closest thing to a magic carpet. For 2016, that magic carpet travels farther and can recharge three times faster.
At the heart of each Zero S ZF13.0 and Zero SR model is a new and innovative Z-Force® motor. Fundamentally redesigned, the interior permanent magnet (IPM) configuration produces power more efficiently, cools more rapidly and has greater thermal capabilities, significantly improving performance during hard riding and allowing higher sustained speeds.
To expand riding opportunities and provide access to the growing public charging infrastructure, Zero has effectively tripled charging speed with the new Charge Tank accessory. Leveraging the popular J1772 standard, the Charge Tank is designed to work with Level 2 charging stations. ZF9.8 power packs can now be charged to 95% in about two hours, while the new higher capacity ZF13.0 takes about three hours.
New cell chemistry within the Z-Force® power pack stores more energy and operates more efficiently, resulting in a system that boasts the highest energy density in the electric vehicle industry. The power pack requires no routine maintenance and is backed by a 5-year/160,000 kilometer warranty.
As Zero continues to raise the bar on its highest performance models, proven technology makes electric motorcycles even easier to own. With its impressive power-to-weight ratio, the 2016 Zero S ZF9.8 delivers the thrill and convenience of electric at a new lower price.
