Zero Motorcycles’ Z-Force® battery is the most power and energy dense in the EV industry. The Zero S comes with the Z-Force 7.2 battery. Add a Power Tank accessory to expand battery capacity by 3.6 kWh.
The battery is designed to last and backed by a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty. The Zero S also features Long Term Storage Mode to optimize the battery’s state of charge and further improve long term battery health.
Standard charge port
Simple. Subtle. The standard charge port is discrete. A lightweight cable easily connects the onboard charger to any standard household outlet. No additional charging equipment required.
The impressive Z-Force® motor produces smooth power and up to 116 ft-lb with a design so efficient it only requires passive air-cooling. Roll on the throttle for massive acceleration. Roll off the throttle to progressively channel energy back into the battery.
No heavy, complicated or expensive liquid cooling. No fuss. No routine maintenance. This is the industry’s most efficient, powerful, and compact brushless motor.
The Bosch anti-lock brake system (ABS) delivers confident braking. Tested for just about any situation you can imagine, the system optimizes deceleration when you hit your brakes hard. Braking is actuated via levers that can be adjusted for improved ergonomics. ABS can be switched on or off by the rider.
The Zero S comes equipped with a full color display to project the specs you need: speed, state of charge, power output, selected riding mode and more. Sync with your smartphone to customize the information that is displayed on your dash.
Zero collaborated with Showa to develop smooth suspension with superior small bump compliance and predictable control of bigger impacts. The entire suspension system can be fully and easily adjusted to glide over any city street or rip down your favorite twisty roads.
Wheels and tires
Corner with confidence. Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires are mounted on stylish cast alloy wheels to form a system that delivers maximum grip. A hollow front axle shaves unsprung weight to improve handling.
Strip away clutches, gears, shifting, chains and all their weighty complexities. Seamlessly rocket to speeds in excess of 100 mph with pure efficiency as energy quietly transforms into propulsion. The Zero S is direct drive. Its state-of-the-art motor connects directly to the rear wheel using a carbon fiber belt.
No motorcycle “tank” on earth is more versatile. The standard Zero S tank is equipped with spacious lockable storage. Interested in faster charging or greater range? Swap the standard tank for either the Charge Tank option or the Power Tank accessory.
