Zero Motorcycles has unveiled its latest line of MY23 electric motorcycles, highlighting the new DSR/X adventure bike. Designed for both off-road and on-road use, it offers 100 horsepower and an impressive 166 pound-feet of torque, providing enough power to climb steep hills or reach a top speed of 112 MPH.
With a 17.3 kWh battery (expandable to 20.9 kWh), the DSR/X has a range of 180 miles in the city or 85 miles on the highway. The standard Level 2 charger can get you to a 95 percent charge in two hours, or you can upgrade to 6KW fast charging to reach the same level in an hour.
That’s solid for an electric motorcycle, but range is pretty crucial for adventure bikes and gas models can still go much further. To that end, Zero has teamed up with Adventure Mapping Country Backcountry discovery trails (BDR) to provide a library of “achievable, achievable and available routes to follow by electric motorcycles from coast to coast,” the company said.
The other key feature of the DSR/X is the new Cypher III+ motorcycle operating system that integrates Bosch’s complete motorcycle stability control suite, including off-road capabilities. The system is designed to deliver traction and stability, with features like Linked Braking to improve modulation and “Vehicle Hold Control that provides confidence and stability even on the steepest grades,” Zero wrote.
The Zero Motorcycle DSR/X is available in Sage Green or Pearl White, and now arrives at dealers for a base price of $24,495. The company introduced three other MY23 SR (street driving) models, the high-power SR/S ($23,995) and SR/F ($23,795), both equipped with 17.3 kWh batteries and fast charging speeds. of 6.6 kW. The SR model ($19,995) offers a 14.4kWh battery and a standard 3kW charger.
