When we brought you the scaled up screenshots of the Zero SR/S short-lived teaser video earlier this week, we said that the tech for the newly-dressed bike was likely to be the same as on the SR/F naked version that had been on sale for some time.
And that’s turned out to be the case with the new S model using the same ZF75-10 electric motor and the same 14.4kWh lithium-ion battery as are fitted to the F model. That means that the S will make around 110hp and punt out 190Nm of torque.
The electronically-limited top end of 124mph (200kmh) remains but with its new ability to slip through the air better, the bike’s range is (claimed) to be 13% better than on the naked variant. That should take the bike’s range up to 136 miles (as long as the optional-extra PowerTank from Zero is fitted to the bike).
The S’ riding position is more upright, the handlebars have been raised and the footrests are lower than you’ll find on the F, too. The Showa suspension has been re-tuned for better two-up performance, also.
The battery can be charged at a Level 2 charging point. If you buy the optional 6kW charger for the bike, that means that the battery can be charged from 0 to 95% in just one hour. There’s four riding modes; Street, Sport, Eco and Regen with another ten riding modes available to store personal settings.
The price for the base model is £19,950 and for the premium model costing £21,950 – the premium model comes with the rapid 6kW charger, heated grips and new aluminium bar ends. The bikes are available from now. For more details click HERE.
