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.

Powered by the most advanced powertrain 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 fully adjustable suspension and rugged wheel set. Under technical riding conditions, Zero’s optimized direct drive system delivers astonishing responsiveness with the twist of your wrist.

“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
2013 Zero DS Upper View

New for 2013

The evolution of extraordinary

The Zero DS is built off the platform of the revolutionary new 2013 Zero S. Similarly, it is 93% more powerful, generates 62% more torque and yields 13% greater city range. Able to travel 126 mi (city), or 76 mi (highway), on a single charge, the Zero DS has fantastic range and performance. Using a new optional accessory, the Zero DS can be charged to 95% at charging stations in an hour or less. Featuring Zero Motorcycles’ completely new Z-Force™ motor and higher-voltage power system, the Zero DS delivers instant acceleration that is both impressive and, without ever needing to shift, incredibly smooth. This sophisticated, yet elegantly simple, power delivery system allows riders to take on more challenging terrain by eliminating peripheral inconveniences such as clutching or shifting. The brushless motor is sealed to ensure longevity and operates with such high efficiency that it requires no mechanical cooling systems whatsoever. Owning a Zero has never been more enjoyable.

The Zero DS features new rugged bodywork, on-board storage, Nissin brakes and mobile device integration. A new two-up seat, refined frame and passenger pegs provide improved comfort and control for both the rider and passenger. For improved off-road handling and to accommodate a wider variety of tires, the Zero DS uses new 19” front and 17” rear tires. Offering a new level of personalization, the Z-ForceTM powertrain integrates with mobile devices, via Bluetooth, allowing riders to view a customizable dashboard of detailed riding information and adjust the performance characteristics of the motorcycle.
