Zero Motorcycles announce 2017 range at EICMA
e-biking fans were pleased to note the new Zero lineup for 2017. These electric bikes get upto 19% extra torque and 11% added power while Zero will also release its first electric motorbike claiming to exceed 200 mile range per charge.
Set to make their way into markets in 2017, the Zero range with extra torque, power and range are due to developments in the company’s proprietary Z-Force powertrain using interior permanent magnet motors.
Zero has also announced that the company’s current battery structure which was slated to outlast the life of the bike will now be offered with a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty on every 2017 Z-Force power pack.
The Zero S is offered in three configurations S ZF6.5 11 kW, S ZF13.0 11kW and S ZF13.0 priced at £11,890 to £14,990 while the SR is priced higher at £16,990. Zero DS, FX and FXS models also follow the same power as the S while pricing stands at £11,390 thanks to the inclusion of a new integrated lightweight battery.
Zero new ZF6.5 street bike and DS ZF6.5 dual sport will have smaller and lighter batteries allowing for a 95 pound weight reduction as compared to their earlier counterparts. The optional Power Tank accessory extends range to over 100 miles on the freeway and to around 200 miles in city and if this proves true, Zero will have the longest mileage range as compared to any other production electric bike.
