Zero Motorcycles 2018 Lineup, An Impressive Improvement
By Zlatan Stankovic on October 24, 2017
Zero Motorcycles have just launched their models for 2018. At first sight, everything looks similar. Well, the only exterior addition would be the silver paint that blends in awesomely with the modern looks of the motorcycles. But as far as the interior design is concerned, there have been quite a few changes in this year’s models.
First and foremost, all ZF7.2 and ZF14.4 models come with a modified battery composition. This allows them to boast ten per cent longer range. At the same time, the battery charges a lot quicker (6 times more quickly than the previous models because of the 6kW charge tank), and this can lead to improved performance. From this modification, S, SR, DS, and DSR models are benefited.
Zero Motorcycles have referred to the torque with the following statement: “All motorcycles with the compact and lighter weight ZF7.2 power pack offer 11% more rear wheel torque to slingshot ahead of cars and fellow motorcyclists. New gearing and a higher maximum motor rpm deliver the improved performance without any reductions in top speed. In addition, Zero fine-tuned the powertrains of the ZF13.0 Zero S and Zero DS to deliver up to 30% more power and torque to amp up acceleration at highway speeds.”
The torque will definitely be a huge hit, enhancing user experience and allowing riders to feel absolutely free. Along with the modified firmware, the app for mobile devices will be a wonderful asset. In the hands of each rider, it will unveil many useful features that bring control over to him. And who does not want to be in control? Besides the details related to the torque, the app will allow you to adjust the top speed and monitor the battery, etc.
It is worth noting that the cost for 2018 models has not gone up when compared to those of 2017. This is definitely reassuring, as it gives customers a boost to purchase the newer models without spending a small fortune in return. These models are great value for money, given the significant improvement in the battery span and the torque.
The future certainly seems promising for Zero Motorcycles. Within the following days, all the company’s new models will be revealed. But till then, the first impression has been greatly positive!
