Zero Motorcycles unveiled all of its new models for 2024 at EICMA in Milan. The S, DS, and DSR all feature a completely new look. Additionally, the DSR and SR are available as A2 models that can be upgraded to full power once the rider obtains an A license.
After 16 years and more than 265 million miles ridden by motorcyclists worldwide, American company Zero Motorcycles is an essential component of the motorcycle world. While many traditional motorcycle brands are only just now cautiously introducing their first electric models, Zero Motorcycles has long been drawing on their dedicated experience. This knowledge translates to competitively priced products of the highest quality. Through evolution after evolution, Zero Motorcycles makes sure that barriers such as range and charge time gradually fade into the background so that focus can be placed on what really matters: riding.
Zero Motorcycles is proud to announce their latest technology, available on MY24 models. This new innovation allows motorcyclists to upgrade their bike over time to full power. The Zero SR and DSR are the first electric motors to benefit from this tech. It enables A2 licence holders to upgrade their motorcycle to its full 52 kW (70 hp) capacity once they’ve acquired the full license. This will permit the motorbike to grow with the rider.
With nine different motors (plus a Black Forest edition of the DSR/X), the brand also offers the most extensive range of full electric motorcycles in the world for 2024. The selection includes both street bikes and more adventure-oriented motorcycles.
The Zero S, the world’s longest-running model name for an electric street motorcycle, has been given a complete makeover. By 2024, it will be transformed into an attractive naked street bike built around a steel trellis frame. It will be powered by the newest version of Zero’s renowned Z-Force motor, offering a torque of 132 Nm. Its maximum power output is 60 hp (45 kW), while its continuous power is 11 kW, which means that this motor can be ridden with just an A1 license.
Powered by a 14.4 kWh battery pack, which provides a range of up to 248 km and at an affordable price of € 17,690, this new Zero S offers the best value for money.
The Zero SR is equipped with a 15.6 kWh battery pack. The new Z-Force electric engine propels the motorbike with a maximum torque of 140 Nm and a peak power of 70 hp (52 kW). It can also be bought in an A2 version, with reduced output at 35 kW. When the rider has obtained their full A license, the full power of the motorbike can be unlocked (through an official Zero dealer for an additional fee). The SR will cost € 18,710.
Zero SR/F & SR/S
Leading the street range are the Zero SR/F and SR/S. Both models are powered by a powerful Z-Force electric motor that generates a peak torque of 190 Nm and peak power of 84 kW (113 hp). The integrated standard charger can be upgraded with an optional 6 kW rapid charger, allowing you to charge the 17.3 kWh battery pack to 95% in just 1.1 hours. The SR/S and SR/F are competitively priced at €23,790 and €23,385 respectively.
Zero’s Dual Sport Motorcycle lineup
As part of Zero’s Dual Sport Motorcycle lineup, the DS and DSR offer the biggest updates with, since MY24, a rugged exterior like its big brother, the DSR/X. Its steel trellis frame provides an impressive ground clearance while the adjustable fork allows for nearly 21 cm of travel. Three integrated storage compartments add convenience and comfort to suit any daily riding needs.
The Zero DS, equipped with its 14.4 kWh battery pack, houses the newest Z-Force motor from Zero, delivering a peak torque of 132 Nm and the highest power rating of 60 hp (45 kW). The continuous output is 11 kW, meaning that this engine can be operated with an A1 driving license. The DS will retail at €18,710.
Equipped with a 15.6 kWh battery, the Zero DSR provides peak torque of 170 Nm and maximum power of 70 hp (52 kW). It is available as an A2-version limited to 35 kW. Once the rider attains a full ‘A’ license, the full power can be released (for an extra charge via an official Zero dealer). The DSR will cost € 19,725.
The Zero DSR/X is the leading model in Zero’s lineup. This ruggedly built motorbike stands ready to tackle any challenge. Its electric engine produces 75 kW (100 hp) and has a peak torque of 229 Nm. The frame and geometry provide plenty of ground clearance, while the adjustable front fork gives it up to 21 cm of travel. New Black Forest trim features premium parts and accessories for even the most daring riders. The DSR/X will cost €23,895, with the Black Forest edition costing €26,945.
