Zero Motorcycles, the US-based electric motorcycle brand, has teased their upcoming model — the Zero SR/F. The zero-emission naked roadster motorcycle will be based on an all-new platform and will offer an "effortlessly powerful experience".
Not much can be inferred from the teaser image; except its full-LED headlamp cluster and a few design bits (including its USD forks). As shown in the image, the Zero SR/F will be officially unveiled on 25th February 2019.
Earlier last year, Zero Motorcycles had announced their new battery range: ZF14.4, ZF7.2 and ZF3.6; claiming better range and performance than the existing units. The top-of-the-line battery pack promises a claimed range of 350km in the city as well.
Though the electric motorcycle company is less popular in the global two-wheeler scene, they provide technical solutions and equipment to various other brands. In fact, Zero Motorcycles develop the powertrain for Curtiss Motorcycles (formerly known as Confederate Motors).
The current product portfolio of Zero Motorcycles comprises of various of four models: S, DS, FX and FXS; the first two have their respective 'R' variant also. The S is a naked street-fighter motorcycle while the DS is an adventure-tourer. On the other hand, the FX siblings are for meant to go off-road.
The brand will not come to the Indian market anytime soon, nor do they have plans to do so. Even though India still has a long way to go to attain full electric mobility (due to the lack of enough supporting infrastructure), various manufacturers such as Mahindra Electric, Ather Energy, Okinawa and Tork Motorcycles are contributing a lot to make a difference.
In fact, the soon-to-be-launched Tork T6X was recently spotted testing on public roads. Even though we wouldn't want EVs to become a complete replacement to IC-engined vehicles, it is quite interesting to see engineers developing a market of their own.
Thoughts On The New Zero Electric Motorcycle
Though the market for electric two-wheelers is a lot smaller than that of fossil-fuel examples, the demand for the former is going up at a steady rate. In India, electric two-wheelers are becoming a common sight in urban areas. As for the new Zero electric motorcycle, we expect it to popularise the brand to a good extent.
