2018 Zero FXS
The Zero FXS is ready to tackle the most technical sections of the racetrack or dice through virtually any urban obstacle. Powerful and agile, the Zero FXS combines a lightweight aluminum chassis and generous suspension travel to deliver outstanding supermoto-inspired capabilities.
Available in two configurations:
Zero FXS ZF3.6 – “Refuel” in seconds with removable power packs. The Zero FXS ZF3.6’s hot-swappable system allows riders to purchase multiple batteries that can be charged on or off the bike using optional accessories. Add a second module to match the range and performance of the ZF7.2.
Zero FXS ZF7.2 – Equipped with an integrated, higher capacity 7.2 kWh battery, this option is simpler and more cost effective while delivering more power “out of the box.”
What’s New for 2018
Travel 10% farther, up to 161 km per charge, courtesy of improved chemistry in the Z-Force® power pack, the highest energy density battery in today’s transportation industry.
Thanks to new gearing, and a higher maximum motor rpm, the Zero FXS ZF7.2 now offers 11% more rear wheel torque to slingshot ahead of fellow motorists, without giving up any top speed.
Owners can easily realize the benefits of continuous performance advancements by updating their firmware via the latest Zero Motorcycles mobile app.
