The Zero S from Zero Motorcycles based in Santa Cruz, California is an electric power super-moto styled motorbike.

Aircraft grade aluminum is exclusively used in the construction of the lightweight and rigid Zero S twin spar frame which was designed from the ground up by Zero Motorcycles. Designed to have a low center of gravity, the Zero S is highly maneuverable and responsive. The bodywork is formed using custom injected molded plastics to give it aerodynamics and aggressive supermoto styling.

Powering the Zero S is a powerpack developed by Zero Motorcycles called the Z-Force power pack. This system uses an advanced monitoring system which individually controls each cell in the power pack during charging and discharging. 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 S uses a standard 12 volt current to run the dash, lighting and other on board accessories.

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

The suspension on the Zero Motorcycles Zero S 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. A rigid double diamond rear swing arm keeps the wheel planted using a Fox rear shock with a fully adjustable spring preload and easily tuned damping.
