Battery capacity can be increased via software update
In addition to the high energy density of the battery, this range is made possible by efficient cooling through an aluminum housing and heat transfer interface. An important element of the bike are the software updates, which are available in the so-called Cypher Store.
Similar to Tesla, these programs unlock new features and tweaks. The battery capacity is increased to 17.3 kWh; From autumn 2022, the additional power tank will deliver a further 3.6 kWh, which should increase the capacity to almost 21 kWh and enable the maximum range of just 365 kilometers.
It is charged with three kW. This manageable speed can be increased by ten percent with a paid update, which should reduce the charging time from 4.5 hours to 4.1 hours.
It is best to order the top charging option when buying the electric motorcycle and then fill the battery in 1.8 hours. Due to the efficiency and the compact design of the drive train, passive air cooling is sufficient.
Up to 81 kW and a top speed of 200 km/h
The Zero SR comes from the factory with the driving modes “Rain”, “Eco”, “Standard”, “Sport” and “Canyon”, which can be supplemented or refined with many individually adjustable driving programs.
Prices from almost 20,000 euros
The single-track electric speedster costs a whopping 19,390 euros. It has a steel lattice frame with a coaxial Power Pivot chassis and a 43 millimeter Showa upside-down fork (Big Piston – Separate Function Fork) with adjustable spring preload, compression and rebound damping. At the rear there are Showa gas pressure shock absorbers with a piston diameter of 40 millimeters including an external reservoir, where the spring preload, compression and rebound damping are also adjustable.
The front wheel is decelerated with Bosch Base MSC brakes (two four-piston radial calipers) and 320 x 5 millimeter brake discs. A 240 x 4.5 mm brake disc with a single-piston floating caliper is installed on the rear tire.
