From year to year, Zero motorcycles keeps pushing the limits of engineering and putting out more competitive product, The Zero SR/F is exactly that competition. It pushes the boundaries of electric motorcycles, and allows ranges that do not fall short of gas bikes.

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.

Range for the Zero SR/F is also a great advancement, reaching a city range of 161 miles (259 km) and highway range of 82 miles (132 km) if you really push it to speeds. Cruising down highways at about 55mph would get you to a range of just under 100 miles (159km).

The charge time stands at 8 hours with 1kW onboard charger, or 2 hours with Level 2 station, coming as low as 1 hour with optional dual 6kW chargers with the Level 2 station. The SR/F has a curb weight of 485lb (220kg), which does not feel as heavy, mostly because of the sheer force shutting out of it’s batter pack.

There are two model selection available for the SR/F. The Premium version, which is priced $21,495, or the quality standard version that starts at $19,995. One of the main differences is that the premium version features a 6kW on-board charger rather than a 3kW on-board charger, and that simply reduces charge time in half at Level 2 charge stations, quite significant.
