Zero’s line of motorcycles offers a wide variety of range and charging options. Range numbers are calculated based on strict testing conditions. These don’t always reflect average typical use. Several factors will impact your range on electric or gasoline motorcycles. Steep climbs, driving into wind, weight, and tire inflation will all impact range.
Max numbers achieved in strict testing protocol. Actual range will vary based on key riding conditions : speed, weight, wind, incline etc.
