2011 Zero Electric Motorcycle

Every year Zero gets closer to the motorcycle end of the motorcycle/ mountain-bike hybrid design that has defined the brand.

For 2011, the Zero DS has a 17-inch front tire and 16-inch rear, not quite the 21/18 combo we expect on a full-size dual-sport bike.The suspension is also slightly downsized.

The result is a fun-to-ride machine that still has the feel of something related to a mountain bike.

Thanks to its electric motor, there are places you can ride it where a gasoline-powered motorcycle will not be welcome.
