“It’s fast, fun, comfortable, simple, and a joy to ride.”

– Bill Robertson, Digital Trends

Torque Beast

The Zero DS delivers silent stump-pulling torque, churning up to an outrageous 116 ft-lb—more than any fuel-burning production literbike. Twist the throttle. With this stealth force hurling you forward, you’ll easily leave gas bikes behind.

No shifting, vibration or fumes. The industry leading Z-Force® powertrain effortlessly drives your adventure as your motorcycle seems to silently disappear beneath you.

Always Dialed

Crossing from smooth asphalt to loose gravel fire roads? All good. Change performance profiles at the press of a button to master any terrain. The Zero DS is pre-programmed with Eco or Sport modes and performance can be fully customized using the Zero Motorcycles app where you can also see detailed ride stats.

Charge up to 6x faster

Grab lunch. Have a coffee. Recharge. Live your life while adding up to 94 miles of range for every hour you’re plugged in. The Charge Tank option is compatible with Level 2 charge stations and delivers roughly 6x faster charging than when compared to a standard wall outlet. Depending on the battery, a typical recharge can now take as little as an hour.

Charging.
Meet household outlet.

No special equipment required: your standard household outlets can be used as fueling stations for a fraction of the cost of gasoline. Plug in at night and start the day with a full tank.

More about charging

Pull the plug on maintenance

Blast down a fire road. Get dirty. Live in the moment. At the end of your adventure the Zero DS only asks that you plug in. No need to replace clogged filters or dirty oil. The Z-Force® powertrain eliminates the fossil burner mess, trading oil, spark plugs, clutches and filters for a motor with a single moving part. The Zero DS’s ripping acceleration is delivered through a carbon fiber belt that directly connects the motor to the rear wheel. Chain maintenance is a thing of the past.

Zero’s Z-Force® powertrains are constantly advancing with code updates that deliver performance improvements. These updates are delivered through the Zero App, which download directly from your mobile device to your bike.

Savings

Long Range Battery Tech

The Zero DS carries the highest power and energy density battery in the EV industry. With over thirteen years of rigorous off-road experience, the Z-Force® battery confidently delivers you to your destination.

Select the battery size that works for you. Ride up to 204 miles city / 97 miles highway with an 18 kWh battery by adding a Power Tank accessory to the Zero DSR ZF14.4. Or, shed weight and gain storage space with the Zero DS ZF7.2.
