Cars are not the only vehicle that is making a transition to leave combustion engines behind; it also happens with motorcycles, for example. One of the most promising manufacturers in this regard is Zero Motorcycle, which has introduced a new model to its line of electric motorcycles.
The new motorcycle, called the Zero SR/S, is characterized by its elegant design with complete fairing and ergonomics revised for comfort and functionality. Capable of 190 Nm of torque and 110 horsepower, the new SR/S offers top performance and efficiency in its category, thanks to the ZF 75-10 engine and the 14.4 kWh lithium-ion battery.
As for maximum speed, the manufacturer indicates that it reaches the speed of about 124 mph (200 km/h). The new bike promises up to 161 miles (259 km) of autonomy in the city, up to 82 miles (132 km) on the highway, and up to 109 miles (175 km) on a mixed route. By adding the Power Tank accessory, basically a small additional 3.6 kWh battery, the range can reach 201 miles (323 km) in the city, 103 mile (166 km) on the highway, and 136 miles (219 km) combined. This is a 13% improvement in terms of performance and autonomy of the SR/S compared to the previous model Zero SR/F.
The Zero SR/S can install up to three Level 2 charging modules. It takes four hours to charge the base model from 0 to 95% capacity with a regular charger, or 1.3 hours with the 6 KW rapid charge option.
The electric motorcycle has the Cypher III operating system that allows people to manage their vehicle even remotely, through an app for smartphones. Cypher III functions as a central hub, integrating all systems on the motorcycle. From Bosch’s MSC to Zero’s next-generation app and dashboard, everything is connected for easy and intuitive control.
It will arrive in dealers from March 2020. The Standard version comes for $19,995, the Premium version for $21,1995. On the other hand, the Power Tank can be purchased for an additional $2,895. The motorcycle is available in blue and gray.
