2013 Zero S

2013 S is another electric motorcycle but is no doubt that the company produced it managed to significantly the situation with this over the previous generation. was founded in 2006 and since they are dedicating to production of dirt bikes.

After a few of making a stir in the motocross Zero decided to bring its into the world of road-legal and the first 2010 Zero S was

With a limited top speed of 67 mph and enough range to tackle the commute, the 2010 Zero S was what most people call a motorcycle. Its design help either, with the perched flat on top of the frame in a way made it look like the child of a motocross champion and a

To its credit, Zero listened to learned from its mistakes, and to innovate, resulting in the 2012 S. With a new motor, better pack and more sensible specifications, it could hold its own in the and even enjoy the occasional sprint.

But despite Zero’s hard even the long-range 2012 S ZF9 with a 9-kilowatt-hour battery good for 114 miles combined didn’t quite feel a real motorcycle.

If the first six of Zero’s history were its years in elementary school, the 2013 Zero S has thrown the insecurities of junior high and is to play with the big kids.

In the Zero S has been given a ground-up redesign for 2013, a more grown-up design, 40-kilowatt motor and either or 11.4-kWh battery packs, on the model you choose.

Along the extra power, big-boy looks, and larger battery comes a redesigned chassis, steering geometry, and a sub-6 0-to-60-mph time.

Before we get to performance, though, look at the design

With shoulders, accentuated ‘faux’ (which hides an impressively tank bag in a space most would hold gasoline) and a seat, the 2013 Zero S is a you sit in, rather than on.

While might sound like an design feature, it isn’t. By the seat lower and giving the S a more conventional appearance, it a much more approachable and motorcycle to ride.

Most it also makes the Zero S and feel like every sports bike out there the respect and admiration of pretty every biker we came on our weekend-long test-ride. The last we went out on an electric motorcycle, we got and pity laughs.

Then the actual performance. With an 68 lb-ft of torque from and no gear-changes to worry about, the S can keep pace with 500 and 600 cc sports bikes up to and beyond the limit.

Only its electronically-limited top speed of 95 mph you’ll never see unless speeding or on a closed track it out as different.

In Sport mode, the S has just the right level of braking on liftoff to mimic braking on a standard gasoline Apply the brakes lightly, and braking recaptures as much back into the battery as

Brake harder, and the Zero’s Nissin disc brakes it to a safe stop. The only quibble is the Zero S s rather suspension, although this be easy to rectify thanks to its adjustability.

Clever throttle makes it possible to control the Zero S at slow speeds exquisite accuracy, rolling at no more than walking without any fuss.

In fact, at low speeds, we found the S behaved like a much motorcycle going exactly we wanted at the speed we wanted it to, even tight low-speed a breeze.

As with most cars, the 2013 Zero S and its sport cousin the 2013 DS aren’t lacking in gadgets. models come with connectivity as standard (but not to music or take phone over).

Instead, both use the Bluetooth as a way to let owners tweak top speed and regenerative braking when in Eco mode. Just your iOS or Android device, and free smartphone app lets you various motorcycle settings.

The app doubles as a user-customizable second turning a rider s smart into an extension of the motorcycle Since the standard dashboard include range estimates or braking details, this is useful when trying to range.

Driven sensibly, the 2013 S ZF11.4 will manage 120 miles in city traffic, more enthusiastic freeway will result in between 50 and 80 of range.

Given that sports motorcycles will drain a tank of gasoline in same distance, we think the Zero S is the first all-electric that s good enough to go with a comparable 500cc bike.

Of course, there is one With a grown-up motorcycle a grown-up price. At $13,995 for the S ZF 8.5 and $15,995 for the Zero S ZF 11.4, incentives, you’ll have to a deep breath before one.

The 2013 Zero S that electric motorcycles have come of age and it’ll get better from here.

another review promised for Zero’s sports bike is headed toward graduation, and may have kids of its own.

Dig our your leathers: now you can have a bike that’s green
