Zero motorcycles started producing battery powered electric motorcycles in the year 2007. They engineered and assembled their machine in Scotts Valley a small city in Santa Cruz county, California, United States. It is considered the future of motorcycling technology and mix of traditional motorcycles. Zero’s performance improvements have been based around efficiency and making the most out of battery power and density. With more efficient cell chemistry and boosted energy density, the main challenge and focus has been to ride to the furthest destinations on a single charge. The furthest ride on a zero bike SR and DSR model could range between 98 miles at 70 mph on a highway to 197 miles in the city.
The latest model is the smaller capacity S and DS with half battery size and more storage space right behind the battery. More practical than the previous models, it is now easier to commute to your office or visit the nearest grocery store without contributing much to the climate chaos and have a fun ride on the weekend with your friends. You a simply have to plug and then ride.
