Controller
An electric motorcycle's controller is akin to a gas bike's fuel injection system. It precisely "meters" the flow of electricity from the battery to the motor according to the action of the rider's throttle and surrounding conditions, via a sophisticated map algorithm.

Power system
Estimated pack life to 80% (MX track)

This represents the expected life of the power pack, to 80% of its original energy capacity, when the motorcycle is ridden with average aggressiveness on average trails/tracks. An electric motorcycle can continue to function perfectly normal with a power pack that has lost over 20% of its original capacity. The only certain change will be a reduction in maximum range.

The Formula:
Estimated pack life (hours) = (Average off-road range) * (cycle-life rating of the battery) * (90%, to account for 20% linear capacity loss over this rated life)

Max capacity

Maximum capacity tends to be the electric vehicle industry’s choice for reporting the maximum amount of energy that can be stored in a vehicle’s power pack.

About kWh : Where gasoline vehicles use gallons, electric vehicles frequently use kilowatt hours (kWh) to measure the total possible ‘fuel’ or energy storage capacity.

The Formula:
Maximum kWh = (# of cells) * (cell Amp-hour capacity rating) * (cell max voltage rating)

2.8 kWh5.7 kWh
Nominal capacity

Nominal capacity is the most accurate measure of the amount of usable energy that can be stored in a vehicle’s power pack. It differs from maximum capacity because it is calculated using an average voltage that is more often ‘the norm’ rather than a maximum which is rarely seen.

About kWh: Where gasoline vehicles use gallons, electric vehicles frequently use kilowatt hours (kWh) to measure the total possible ‘fuel’ or energy storage capacity.

CHAdeMO charge time (accessory)

The CHAdeMO accessory is an adaptor that allows customers to charge their motorcycles very quickly using CHAdeMO charge stations.

Please note, the CHAdeMO adaptor is sold as an accessory and will only fast-charge the motorcycle using CHAdeMO charging stations. There are an increasing number of CHAdeMO charge stations. See the charging section of our website for more information.

Quick 2x charger time (accessory)

Zero's scalable "quick charge" accessory offerings allow customers to acquire as many as three standalone chargers (in addition to the existing on-board unit) for up to a ~75% reduction in charge time depending on the model and year.

Please keep in mind that most household electricity circuits are rated to 110V/15A, which can only support a single charger. As a result, in order to make use of Zero's quick-charge accessories, you must plug each charger into a separate 110V/15A circuit. If connecting to any other, higher-rated household circuit, you must make sure it can safely support the load of each of Zero's 1,200W input chargers.

Typical cost to recharge

This indicates the average cost to recharge a fully drained power pack. More often, riders will be charging a partially drained power pack and will have a lower cost of recharge. The actual cost of recharging will always be dictated by the amount of charge put into the power pack and the cost of electricity flowing from the particular outlet.

The Formula:
Typical Cost to Recharge = (US average consumer cost per KWh) X (Power Pack nominal capacity)
