Electric motorcycle manufacturer Zero has re-armed for 2014, introducing a new bike with more torque than previous models, as well as a lot more range.
The new Zero SR has an amazing 106 ft-lbs of torque, while making 67 hp. Sadly, that power is still channeled through an auto transmission.
The SR’s city range is now as high as 275 km; combined city and highway riding will get you as much as 210 km. Cruising around 90 will get you a 170-km range, and cruising around 110 will get you around 140 kms of range. Or so Zero says, anyway.
Where does all that range come from? The Zero S, SR and DS models all have an 11.4 kWh battery pack, but Zero is making an extra 2.8 kWh battery pack available as an option. Sounds like maybe it’s time for CMG to long-term a battery bike?
The lineup has new upgrades to suspension and brakes as well. We don’t know Canadian pricing or availability yet. We do have a video from Zero below the gallery, though.
