Zero FXS For Sale
What Is It?
The Zero FXS is a premium super moto style bike and is powered by an air-cooled Z-Force 75-5 motor, producing 44.3 bhp peak power at 4,500 rpm and 21 bhp continuous power at 4,300 rpm.

- 320 mm disc up front with J-Juan two piston caliper
- 240 mm disc at the rear with J-Juan single piston caliper
- Bosch ABS system with off-mode
- Adjustable 41 mm Showa fork with 178 mm travel

The 7.2 kWh battery charges to 100% in a hefty 9.7 hours but it can be reduced to just 1.8 hours with the £700 quick charger and you can take advantage of the public quick charging stations or a quick charge station at home if you have one specially fitted.
For piece of mind you also get a five year warranty on the ZF7.2 Li-Ion battery but unlike the rest of the Zero range the FX models don't accept the 3.6 kWh PowerTank accessory to boost range.
Like many of the cruisers out there the final drive is via a belt, which reduces the usual chain maintenance tasks and adds to the overall quiet package.
There's also a handy app which can connect to the bike and can be used to easily tweak all the various ride mode parameters like max speed, torque and the level of re-generative braking. Sport gives you maximum performance at the expense of range while Eco limits the top speed, drops available torque by almost half and cranks re-gen braking up to the max.
For short inner city commutes, where you can charge it at work, it sort of makes sense and it's also eligible for the current Government electric vehicle grant of £1,500. The 10-spoke 17" front wheel takes a 110/70 Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyre and the rear a 140/70.
