The award-winning SR/F, which changed the course of the electric vehicle industry, will be updated with all new colors: black & silver as well as mint & red. New for 2021, the SR/F standard and premium versions will each come with a low-profile fly screen. The aluminum bar ends, heated grips and a 6 kWh on-board charger remain part of the premium version. The standard and premium 2021 SR/F retails for $19,495 and $21,495, respectively.

Zero SR/F packs a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h), which you couldn’t possibly complain about. That’s a high top speed that most riders wouldn’t sustain for long rides. It sustains the torque all through it’s climb from 0 all the way up to that 124 mph mark. With a 82kW motor that pulls and pulls, happily whipping more horses anytime you would like them. The ride on the SR/F feels smooth and the bike does not scream underneath, but rather feels that it could easily push more.

Zero SR/F gets a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h), quite adequate for a speed bike. The SR series by Zero has an 82kw motor, passive air cooled permanent magnet AC motor, that gets 110 horse power. The battery pack is a 12.6kWh, with power peak at 14.4kWh, which carries the ride with amazing torque of 190Nm. That’s enough force to get a 0-60 speed that should run close to 3.5 seconds.
