Zero Motorcycles DS 2022

According to Zero Motorcycles

The Zero DS delivers silent stump-pulling power, pumping out an outrageous 80 ft-lb torque. Twist the throttle and explore more trails and leave all the gas bikes behind.

No special equipment required: your standard household outlets can be used as fueling stations for a fraction of the cost of gasoline. Plug in at night and start the day with a full tank.

No shifting, vibration, or fumes. The industry-leading Z-Force® powertrain effortlessly drives your adventure over 203 miles of trails all while the motorcycle seems to silently disappear beneath you.

The Zero DS carries the highest power and energy density battery in the EV industry. With over fifteen years of rigorous off-road experience, the Z-Force® battery confidently delivers you to your destination.

Grab lunch. Have a coffee. Recharge. Live your life while adding up to 94 miles of range for every hour you’re plugged in. The Charge Tank option is compatible with Level 2 charge stations and delivers roughly 6x faster charging than when compared to a standard wall outlet. Depending on the battery, a typical recharge can now take as little as an hour.

Blast down a fire road. Get dirty. Live in the moment. At the end of your adventure the Zero DS only asks that you plug in. No need to replace clogged filters or dirty oil. The Z-Force® powertrain eliminates the fossil burner mess, trading oil, spark plugs, clutches and filters for a motor with a single moving part. The Zero DS’s ripping acceleration is delivered through a carbon fiber belt that directly connects the motor to the rear wheel. Chain maintenance is a thing of the past.
