Game Changing Z-Force™ Power Pack

The world’s first truly modular system

The Zero MX features the world’s first truly modular power pack system. With slots for two power packs, you can operate the Zero MX with either one or both slots filled. The modules charge using a standalone charger to reduce weight.

The Zero MX can be purchased with either one module (ZF2.8) or two modules (ZF5.7). Compatible with the Zero FX and Zero XU, the modules can be swapped between any one of the three motorcycles.

Enhanced power pack features include:
  • World’s first fully modular Z-Force™ quick-swap technology allows you to easily upgrade from 2.8 kWh (max) to 5.7kWh (max) in seconds
  • State of the art new power pack configuration and cell chemistry
    • Cells last 2,500 full charge-discharge cycles before hitting 80% capacity
  • Modules can be fully removed from the motorcycle and transported to charge anywhere
  • Modules can be used interchangeably with the Zero XU and Zero FX
  • Module locking system for increased security and peace of mind
  • Quick-charge and CHAdeMO compatible

Revolutionary Z-Force™ Motor

68 ft-lbs, up to 54 hp… and incredibly efficient

Zero Motorcycles designed the Z-Force™ motor from the ground up to be compact, efficient and powerful. It provides you with instant acceleration to a top speed of 85 mph. Completely air cooled, the motor is designed to provide a fantastic riding experience minus the need for any regular maintenance. When slowing down, the motor generates electricity that is channeled back into the power pack to help extend ride times.

  • Designed from the ground up by Zero Motorcycles to be the world’s most efficient, powerful, compact, brushless and sealed air-cooled motor
  • Produces 54 hp and 68 ft-lbs of torque
  • Requires no routine maintenance
  • Operates with such high efficiency that it does not require any complex cooling system
  • Increased torque and broad power band for much stronger acceleration
  • Quad-level regenerative system recharges the power pack when decelerating
    • Re-gen level is increased during brake application vs. “neutral” deceleration
    • Both braking and “neutral” re-gen levels are set higher in Eco vs. Sport mode
    • Eco mode re-gen levels can be customized using the Zero Motorcycles App

Zero MX Electric Motorcycle Charging System

Charge Anywhere

Plug in at any standard outlet

The Zero MX uses a standalone charger that can be plugged in at any standard outlet. No additional equipment is required for standard charging and the system allows you to conveniently charge the modules either on or off the motorcycle. The Zero MX is compatible with both CHAdeMO and quick-charge systems.

Zero MX Electric Motorcycle Frame

Frame and Bodywork

Light Aircraft Grade Aluminum

At the core of the Zero MX lies the ultimate dirt bike frame that Zero engineered from the ground up and hand crafted using aircraft grade aluminum. The resulting combination of lower weight and higher strength means more responsiveness. In the turns and off the line this translates into greater acceleration. To make the frame even more durable each one is shot-peened and anodized.

View Detailsopen button
  • Rigid, robust and lightweight frame
  • Hydroformed top tube for increased strength and reduced weight
  • Large cylindrical swingarm cross tube for increased stiffness and suspension response
  • Entire frame is shot-peened and anodized for resistance to corrosion and abrasion
  • Bodywork is highlighted with new graphics

Suspension and handling

Smooth Control

The Zero MX uses a refined suspension system to absorb aggressive terrain on the track. Taking advantage of the motorcycle’s low weight, the inverted front fork is robust, light and responsive. Riders can quickly dial it in using the externally adjustable compression and rebound damping. On the rear, a rigid double diamond swing arm keeps the wheel planted using a specially developed rear shock with a fully adjustable spring preload and easily tuned damping.

View Detailsopen button
  • Carefully tuned, balanced and improved suspension system:
    • Specially tuned for the track and trail
    • Robust triple-clamps for improved bearing pre-loading and durability
    • Steel stanchions for increased strength, rigidity and control
    • Front adjustments: Compression and rebound damping
    • Rear adjustments: Spring preload, compression and rebound damping
  • Refined contact points:
    • Aggressive saw tooth profile footpegs to maintain foot position and control
    • Standardized footpeg clevis for greater aftermarket options
    • Handlebars with adjustable risers
    • Ergonomic riding position for better control
    • Comfortable seat to accommodate longer rides
Zero MX Electric Motorcycle brakes

Brakes

Robust Stopping Power with Nissin

Because you’ll be going faster through the turns and riding harder with instant torque at any RPM, the Zero MX features robust stopping power and a precise brake feel.

View Detailsopen button
  • Nissin brakes are precise, easy to modulate and require little effort
  • Powerful and high performance braking system
  • Increased fade resistance
  • Steel braided lines for improved lever feel and precise brake modulation
  • Greater commonality using standard-size mount patterns
Zero MX Electric Motorcycle Wheels

Wheels and Tires

Hook Up in the Turns

The Zero MX alloy wheels are designed to reduce unsprung weight while not compromising on strength. During acceleration instant torque is efficiently channeled into the dirt through a beefy rear tire and directed using an equally aggressive front.

  • 21” front and 18” rear tires for improved off-road handling and more tire options
  • Aggressive motocross tires (front and rear)
Zero MX Electric Motorcycle Drivetrain

Gearing and Chain

Durability and New Aftermarket Options

To accommodate the Zero MX’s increased traction and ability to accelerate in the dirt Zero uses a hardened steel 520 chain along with durable direct drive gearing. The result is a stronger and longer lasting drivetrain that puts the power from the throttle directly into the dirt.

  • Hardened steel 520 Chain
  • Optimized to be light, stiff, strong and durable
  • Standard-size mount pattern for greater aftermarket options

Dash

Quick Look and Easy Access

A quick look tells you everything you need to know when reading the Zero MX’s simple and durable instrument panel. Connecting the dash to the heart of the motorcycle is a robust wiring system that is designed to increase electrical system longevity. With a motorcycle this desirable, you’ll also be reassured to know that it comes with an integrated keyed ignition switch and steering lock.
