Zero Motorcycles manufacture some of the best electric motorcycles in the world. They really do succeed in “combining the best aspects of a traditional motorcycle with today’s most advanced technology” as they state on their website. So let’s review an electric motorcycle that very well may be considered a best value bike.
The Zero – FXS.
This baby comes in a low price point of only $15,495 with base option. Making it more than just affordable. We’re not saying it’s the cheapest electric bike you can get, but it still is a price that justifies the great ride the FXS provides.
The FXS standard battery pack is 20kW, or an upgraded 34kW, Which supports a range of 50 to 100 miles (80-160 km) depending on the upgrade options. It really excels when it comes to city driving and shorter ranges, the perfect electric motorcycle for commuting. for A full charge takes about five hours. Despite that, with the max charge accessories purchased, it fully charges in just 1.6 hours.
Zero FXS is built for performance. Functional and useful for a wide range of trips whether a quick stop at the city center, where you can feel the agility of it, to a longer distance and faster speeds. It’s a great all round motorcycle.
The FXS generates a torque of 106Nm, allowing the bike to go from 0 to 60 kph (100 kmh) in under 4.1 seconds, while the 34kW pack will get there in only 3.8. Really some great performance from such a city bike. It’s curb weight comes stands at 293lb (133kg) and its top speed is 85 mph (137 kph).
This great piece of work goes great whether on roads and highways, or on gravel and off-road paths. It just waits for you to test it and see the punch it packs for off road fun.
In our eyes, the price is just the frosting on this deal, it’s performance and speeds mentioned above are putting it side by side with other electric motorcycles at much higher prices. Overall, we want one!
