Late last year, we had a look at the DSR/X, one of the more exciting two-wheeled EVs to emerge from American firm Zero Motorcycles. The $25,000 model featured the forward-looking company’s newest powertrain centerpiece, the Z-Force 75-10X direct-drive motor.
Zero Motorcycles’ most recent concept, the SR-X, is the latest bike to emerge from their workshop. The motor loses the X and is called the ZF75-10, and it’s not quite as potent as the motor in the DSR/X, but still delivers an exceedingly healthy 110 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque; it’s mated to a 17.3 kWh Z-Force lithium-ion battery.
Unlike the DSR/X — a ready-for-anything 2020s ride — the bike is presented more of a statement of intent for the company, a representation of its possibility. It came about through collaboration with Huge Moto, and features an exaggerated front end and an LED light bar headlamp that give the single-seat concept a future-is-now look.
