CHARGE UP TO 6X FASTER
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.
CHARGING. MEET HOUSEHOLD OUTLET.
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.
LONG RANGE BATTERY TECH
The Zero DS carries the highest power and energy density battery in the EV industry. With over thirteen years of rigorous off-road experience, the Z-Force® battery confidently delivers you to your destination.
PULL THE PLUG ON MAINTENANCE
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.
SWAPPABLE BATTERY CAPABILITY: Zero Motorcycles’ Z-Force® battery is the most power and energy dense in the EV industry. The Zero DS comes with the ZF7.2 battery. The Zero DSR comes with the ZF14.4 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 DS also features Long Term Storage Mode to optimize the battery’s state of charge and further improve long term battery health.
MOTOR: 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.
CHASSIS: Custom-tuned for Zero by Showa, the Zero DS suspension offers 7 inches of plush travel that enables you to tackle virtually any terrain thrown your way. The entire suspension system can be fully and easily adjusted to glide over any city street or rip down your favorite fire road.
SUSPENSION: Custom-tuned for Zero by Showa, the Zero DS suspension offers 7 inches of plush travel that enables you to tackle virtually any terrain thrown your way. The entire suspension system can be fully and easily adjusted to glide over any city street or rip down your favorite fire road.
DASH: Minimalist. Modern. Efficient. The Zero DS dash projects the specs you need— speed, state of charge, power output, selected riding profile, projected recharge time—in a cool blue LCD display. Sync with your smartphone to add a secondary customizable dash or view detailed ride stats.
ONBOARD CHARGER: No additional charging equipment required. The standard 1.3 kW onboard charger plugs into any household outlet. It can be operated in conjunction with the off-board Quick Charger accessory and/or the Charge Tank option to accelerate charge times.
TANK: The standard Zero DS “tank” is equipped with spacious lockable storage—perfect for stowing personal items like cell phones, wallets, or gloves. Interested in faster charging or greater range? Swap the standard tank for the Charge Tank option for 6x faster charging or the Power Tank accessory that adds an additional 3.6 kWh of battery.
BRAKES: 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.
DIRECT DRIVE: Strip away clutches, gears, shifting, chains and all their weighty complexities. Seamlessly rocket to speeds in excess of 95 mph with pure efficiency as energy quietly transforms into propulsion. The Zero DS is direct drive. Its state-of-the-art motor connects directly to the rear wheel using a carbon fiber belt.
WHEELS AND TIRES: Shred confidently on anything from twisting tarmac to loose fire roads, the Zero DS’s Pirelli MT-60 tires provide superior traction, excellent durability and road feel. The tires are mounted to durable cast alloy wheels and a hollow front axle shaves unsprung weight to improve handling.
