Zero Motorcycles Announces 2015 Model Line
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (Sept. 30, 2014) – Zero Motorcycles today announced its 2015 model line with premium new standard equipment including Showa suspension, Bosch anti-lock brake systems and Pirelli tires. The refinements are designed to transform the already exhilarating ride experience by offering incredibly smooth suspension, optimal braking responsiveness and unrivaled traction. To increase range, Zero introduced new battery cells with 10% greater capacity on the Zero S, Zero SR and Zero DS. When combined with the Power Tank accessory, this yields an industry leading range of up to 185 miles in the city, 94 miles on the highway at 70 mph or 115 miles at 55 mph.
Zero S MSRP: $13,345 (ZF9.4) / $15,345 (ZF12.5)
"For 2015, we have further redefined the motorcycle experience by creating a lineup that delivers, quite possibly, the most seamless and pure ride of any motorcycle ever manufactured,” said Richard Walker, CEO of Zero Motorcycles. “With no shifting, up to 106 lbs-ft of instant torque and a host of new technical improvements that offer premium comfort and control, we invite all consumers to go for a ride on these impressive new machines. The new lineup will arrive at North American dealerships in December and during late February for Europe."
Zero SR MSRP: $17,345 (ZF12.5)
Beyond improvements in suspension, brakes and batteries, the 2015 lineup features a host of new design elements and componentry. Freshly designed cast alloy wheels on the Zero S, Zero SR and Zero DS incorporate a carrier-less front rotor and hollow front axle to reduce unsprung weight. Riders will notice stylish new mirrors that provide excellent rearward visibility and reduce motorcycle width. Improved seat ergonomics and softer grips enhance comfort. A more robust throttle controls the Z-Force motor’s instantaneous torque.
Zero DS MSRP: $13,345 (ZF9.4) / $15,345 (ZF12.5)
"Zero worked in close collaboration with Showa to develop suspension systems that are optimized for each specific model,” said Abe Askenazi, CTO of Zero Motorcycles. “The resulting ride quality is fantastic. When combined with Bosch’s carefully tuned ABS on newly engineered brake systems and Pirelli tires, every Zero has once again been transformed."
Zero FX MSRP: $9,845 (ZF2.8) / $12,340 (ZF5.7)
By staying focused on carefully selected motorcycle categories, Zero has kept its product line diverse enough to meet the needs of a wide variety of riders and lean enough to offer customers refinements without substantial increases to suggested retail pricing. As a result, the premium upgrades to the 2015 line will only cost riders around $400 more for very significant improvements.
Zero Motorcycles Fleet Products
Zero Motorcycles is releasing four fleet motorcycles for the 2015 model year. Updated models include the Zero SP, Zero DSP and Zero MMX. Zero is introducing the Zero FXP as a new model for 2015 to provide a more nimble, faster and lower cost option to patrol fleets. With the ability to ride both on and off-road, Zero’s fleet motorcycles offer unique advantages over internal combustion driven machines. The 100% electric powertrain is nearly silent, exhaust free, produces minimal heat, has instant torque from zero rpm and is highly maneuverable. With a ‘fuel’ cost of a penny per mile and a maintenance-free powertrain, a Zero offers the ability for governments, agencies and organizations to save money while also giving them a tactical advantage.
