Zero S (2017 onwards) motorcycle

Zero S (2017 onwards)

The Zero S is a super light electric motorcycle that offers phenomenal handling and a surprisingly good performance. Its power output of 31 bhp might seem a bit low at first, but the low weight of the bike (142 kg) combined with its powerful electric engine will ensure you will get a lot of torque.

Being a street bike, the Zero S suits best for urban areas and short distance rides. It has a small battery that will only provide about 52 miles (84 km) range for one charge, which is not that impressive. Most other electric motorcycles have much better range, but they are also considerably heavier.

The bike is equipped with a fully adjustable suspension made by Showa. It has an ABS, but there is no traction control. The build quality of the motorcycle is excellent and you will get a 2-year warranty (5 years for the battery).

The Zero S is a fantastic electric motorcycle that is super fun to ride and its running costs are very low. The only two downsides are a very low battery range and a lack of traction control.

A2 Licence Compliance

The Zero S is a 12V / 0cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 23 kW (31 bhp), which is within the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. No restriction is required, as the bike is fully A2 licence compliant.
