Zero Motorcycles DS | Electric Dual Sport Preview

All Roads, All Electric

Zero Motorcycles today introduced the Zero DS, a fully electric dual sport motorcycle that can be ridden anywhere from the city street, to a gravel road, to a dirt trail. Zero has equipped its latest model with aggressive suspension, rugged wheels and dual sport tires to efficiently move riders over any surface. The Zero DS is a high performance motorcycle that is powered by Zero Motorcycles’ industry leading Z-Force drivetrain.

“The Zero DS is designed for motorcyclists who want the freedom to ride wherever they want,” said Gene Banman, CEO of Zero Motorcycles. “It is the world’s most versatile electric motorcycle. You can cut across a dirt trail on your way into work or ride the tarmac to your favorite trail-head.”

Unlike the competition, the Zero DS is designed from the ground up to be an electric motorcycle. Aircraft grade aluminum is exclusively used in the construction of the lightweight twin spar frame. Each component on the motorcycle is engineered to minimize weight and the power pack is designed for maximum energy density. The resulting motorcycle is quicker, has greater range and is more agile. Those interested in using the Zero DS for daily driving or short excursions can order it with custom panniers that are factory installed.

Environmentally conscious consumers will be pleased to know that the Zero DS is not only a zero emissions vehicle, but is completely non-toxic and almost 100% recyclable. In addition to the motorcycle’s extraordinary energy efficiency, the power pack consists of lithium ion cells that are clean enough to be landfill approved. This unique combination of performance and low overall environmental impact sets a new high standard in the industry.

The Zero DS is available for purchase exclusively through the Zero Motorcycles website and is priced at $9,950. For more information on the Zero DS visit: www.zeromotorcycles.com/zero-ds
