Are electric bikes the future of urban motorcycling? If that’s the case, then Zero’s new 2017 line up of bikes, including the FXS Supermoto shown above, may give us a small glimpse of this future. Zero have updated their model range with a new 2017 Z-Force powertrain that delivers up to 19% more torque and 11% more power. The 2017 Zero FXS’s motor is now rated at 106 Nm of torque, up to 33 kW of power, and the bike weighs just 135 kg. Setup is a supermoto configuration with 17 inch wheels and Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres, including ABS, fully adjustable suspension, and aggressive looking dual projector beam headlights. Running costs are low with a maintenance-free powertrain and on-roads costs of around a few cents (USD) in electricity for each kilometre travelled.
