The DS from Zero Motorcycles based in Santa Cruz, California is an electric powered motorcycle designed for use both on and off the road. The Zero DS can handle everything from dirt and gravel, to asphalt and grass.

The ZERO DS was created through years of development and uses ZERO Motorcycle's proprietary Z-Force electric propulsion technology. Using an advanced monitoring system, each cell in the power pack is individually controlled during charge and discharge. The onboard charger integrates into this system and uses a specially developed charge profile to optimize the power pack’s recharge time. Using isolated power systems the Zero DS uses a standard 12 volt current to run the dash, lighting and other on board accessories.
The top speed of the ZERO DS is 55 mph, with a range of 50 miles. Recharge time for the bike is less than 4 hours.

Aircraft grade aluminum is exclusively used in the construction of the lightweight and rigid twin spar frame. The body is created using molded plastics to give it aggressive supermoto styling.

The wheels of the ZERO DS are engineered to minimize unsprung weight and reduce rotating mass. Designed specifically for the Zero DS, the lightweight construction includes custom hubs, spokes, and rotors. To maximize overall wheel strength the hub is configured to use straight pull spokes.

The suspension on the Zero DS was developed by Zero to take advantage of the motorcycles’ lightweight design. Its inverted front fork is among the lightest in the industry and can be externally adjusted to dial in compression and rebound damping.
