Description

BYPASS THE ORDINARY



The Zero DS combines innovation with passion to deliver the world’s most versatile electric motorcycle. Designed to be agile in the dirt and quick on the street, the Zero DS represents a new kind of freedom.



Blast down a gravel road or a dusty trail. When you’re ready, stealthily pass from the wild to the civilized as you arrive at your destination. The Zero DS is tough when you demand it and distinguished when required. Choose from the Power Tank or Charge Tank accessories to extend your range or take advantage of three times faster charging.



Propelled by the most advanced technology in the industry, the Zero DS is a fully electric motorcycle that can handle any surface you throw at it. Overcoming obstacles and maintaining control is effortless due to its direct-drive powertrain and fully adjustable suspension. Under technical riding conditions, Zero’s revolutionary Z-Force® motor delivers astonishing responsiveness with the twist of your wrist. As with Zero’s entire model line, the Zero DS offers a liberating ownership experience with its maintenance-free powertrain, penny-per-mile “fuel” cost and powerful acceleration.

Features
  • Game Changing Z-Force® Power Pack (140+ Mi Range / 300,000+ Mi Lifetime): The Zero DS and Zero DSR feature advanced cell chemistry and battery management systems that provide greater capacity and range. Not only does the ZF13.0 power pack enable you to go beyond 140 miles, it is also designed to last the life of the motorcycle. The result of cutting-edge research and development, each cell in the power pack is individually controlled and monitored to ensure maximum health.
  • Power Tank Technology (Up to 184 Miles in the City): The Z-Force® Power Tank adds 3.3 kWh of power pack storage capacity to any 2014 or later Zero DS or Zero DSR. An optional accessory, the Power Tank can be added at any time during or after motorcycle purchase, bringing the maximum battery capacity to 16.3 kWh. With that much energy, you can travel up to 184 miles in the city or 88 miles on the highway.
  • Revolutionary Z-Force® Motor (Up to 70 Hp, 116 Ft-Lb…and Incredibly Efficient): Zero Motorcycles designed the Z-Force® motor from the ground up to be compact, efficient and powerful. It delivers exhilarating acceleration to a top speed of 98 mph on the Zero DSR. Completely air-cooled, the motor provides a fantastic riding experience, minus the need for any regular maintenance. When slowing down, the motor generates electricity that is channeled back into the power pack to help extend ride times.
  • Frame and Bodywork (Great to Look At. Even Better to Ride.): Aircraft-grade aluminum is exclusively used in the construction of the twin spar frame. It is lightweight, strong and one of the main reasons that the motorcycles handle incredibly well on the dirt or street. Designed to have a low center of gravity, the Zero DS and Zero DSR are highly maneuverable and responsive. The refined, yet rugged, appearance is completed with sleek bodywork with a contemporary, aggressive and naked look. The tank section of the bodywork features an integrated storage compartment that is both lockable and removable. The tank section can also be replaced with the Power Tank accessory for greater range or the Charge Tank accessory for faster charging.
  • Showa Suspension (The Magic Ride): Zero worked in close collaboration with Showa to develop suspension systems that provide excellent small bump compliance, predictable control of bigger impacts and exceptionally smooth action under all conditions. Torsional rigidity of the front end improves handling, and a hollow front axle reduces unsprung weight. Suspension settings are completely customizable to meet the demands of a wide variety of riders.
  • Bosch Anti-Lock Brake System (Abs) (Powerful. Precise. Control.): The Zero DS and Zero DSR feature an advanced Bosch anti-lock brake system (ABS) that improves control in a wide array of conditions and ensures the best braking performance, while a large 320 mm diameter carrier-less rotor increases stopping power.
  • Wheels and Tires (Paved Road. Dirt Road. No Road.): Pirelli tires are standard on the Zero DS and Zero DSR, providing great traction in a wide variety of conditions, excellent durability and road feel. The tires are mounted to stylish and durable cast alloy wheels.
  • Dash and Controls (Impressive Information. Elegantly Displayed.): The dash is designed by Zero to quickly and accurately provide useful data on such information as state of charge, power output and your selected riding profile. You can toggle through three riding profiles, using the ergonomic right-hand switch gear, to better meet the needs of your ride: Sport, Eco, Custom. The dash screen features a cool blue backlit LCD display and integrates seamlessly into the front of the motorcycle. Want more information about the motorcycle while riding or at home? Try the Zero Motorcycles App.
  • Zero Motorcycles App (Get Your Motorcycle Dialed): Using the Zero Motorcycles App, you can see detailed information about your motorcycle such as the time until charged, average watts per mile, total charge cycles and much more. When parked, the app allows you to set the custom riding mode’s performance profile by adjusting the parameters for top speed, maximum torque and maximum regenerative braking. While riding, your phone transforms into a customized dash that provides detailed real-time motorcycle information. Synced using Bluetooth, the app works on iPhone and Android mobile devices.
  • Direct Drive Gearing (Instant Torque With a Twist): Featuring clutchless direct drive, the Zero DS and Zero DSR are geared for rapid acceleration and maximum efficiency. Without ever needing to shift, acceleration is controlled and powerful at any speed from 0-98 mph. The carbon fiber belt achieves minimal frictional losses for increased overall range and is integral to making the powertrain quiet and maintenance-free.
  • Charge Easily. Charge Anywhere. (Travel up to 49 Miles Per Hour of Charging): From public Level 2 charge stations to your garage, Zero’s charging options are designed to fit your lifestyle. Every Zero comes standard with a simple and lightweight cable that plugs into any household outlet. For faster charging on the go, Zero offers the Charge Tank accessory. It effectively triples on-board charging speed, allowing riders to recharge their power pack in as little as 2-3 hours at level 2 charging stations. The result is up to 49 miles of riding range for each hour of charging time (based on city range). For home or office use, Zero’s scalable "Quick Charger" system can dramatically reduce charging times. The system uses up to four stand-alone (off-board) 1kW chargers that work in conjunction with the motorcycle’s standard (on-board) charger.
