Zero has been building electric motorcycles for 13 years. At this moment, they have gone from placing vehicles less optimal than with electric power motors, with fantastic bikes that are only electrified.
In the last years, the company has had a roadmap foreseen. Every 12 months you will improve the engines and extend the range of your line. Bicycles continued to look almost the same as gulfs were improved. But the SF / R is something different and it's more than its design.
While riding in the mountains above Santa Cruz, California, I am impressed by the speed of acceleration. Return the accelerator and respond with the expected torque of an electric motor, but the system has been polished. It does not remove the experience of riding an electric bicycle. If that does, better.
This has to do with the Cypher III operating system of Zero and the stability control of Bosch motorcycles. But not only is it an acceleration, but also controls how the motorcycle reacts to different surfaces and driving styles. He has taken his driving to another level. The motorcycle maker even added a Rain on the motorcycle mode. A first for your training and a welcome view for anyone who goes daily and faces precipitation. During the tests with curves, record and a bit of rain, the motorcycle tackled these obstacles and responded with grace.
What's great is that none of this eliminates the almost instantaneous speed of riding a motorcycle zero. The SR / F has 140 feet-loads of torque and 110 horsepower. So, when you take the catch again, you move fast. Very fast.
Then we come to the design and, frankly, it's a search engine. The company has deviated from its previous design language with something outstanding. The design team wanted to point out that it was an electric motorcycle to accelerate the engine. It is a "naked" motorcycle that will be at home next to Ducatis and Aprillas.
The SR / F looks great and even better. With that, the argument for electric bicycles only became stronger. This is a more refined motorcycle from a company that is still impressive with its offers. This new bike is an evolutionary leap in its history and, hopefully, the next time I have it, it can make me a little more aggressive.
