Zero Motorcycles has officially introduced the SR/S its first electric sportbike, which was initially scheduled to debut on February 24, 2020, but the regrettable leak of its introduction video spoiled the fun and seemingly compelled Zero to launch sooner rather than later.
Zero SR/S offers a sporty look with better riding position than the SR/F thanks to the taller handlebar, lower footpegs, and the addition of a windscreen.
The SR/S comes with the same ZF75-10 electric motor with a ZF 14.4 kWh lithium-ion battery that offers 110 horsepower, 140 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 124 mph and can travel up to 191 miles (~307 kilometers) in a single charge. The range of the bike can also be extended up to 201 miles (~323 km) with an optional Power Tank.
The SR/S features Bosch’s stability control technology, cornering ABS, and 14 ridings modes (Rain, Sport, Eco, Street, and 10 customizable settings). Using Zero’s Cypher III operating system, owners will be able to pair their smartphone with the bike’s computer and monitor its status and location.
It takes about an hour to charge from 0 to 95-percent using the 6kWh fast charger and about four hours using the basic 3 kWh charger somehow better than SR/F but there’s still no DC-fast charger.
The new Zero SR/S Standard starts at $19,995 while the Premium that comes standard with the 6 kWh charger, heated grips, and aluminum bar ends starts at $21,995.
The optional Power Tank will be available for $2,895 and will be available from March 1st, and the SR/S will be available on dealers from February 19th, 2020.
