ZERO has today pulled the wraps off its new SRF model and released full specifications on its most powerful bike yet.
The long-standing electric bike leaders have been teasing the new model since early last month, but details have been kept locked tight ahead of today’s launch event.
But this morning at their Californian HQ, bosses finally revealed the naked powerhouse.
The 2020 Zero SRF will feature a 140 ft-lb, clutchless direct drive motor, a 200 mile range with a Power Tank and a whopping 124mph top speed.
In Standard trim, the bike tips the scales at 485lb with an 80min charge time to 95 per cent, while the 495lb Premium version can be almost fully juiced up in one hour flat with the optional 6kW Rapid Charge upgrade
The SRF is said to make a peak 110hp at 5000rpm and is tamed by a high efficiency 900 Amp, 3-phase AC Bosch controller with regenerative deceleration.
Its new Cypher III operating system features up to 10 programmable custom modes as well as the pre-programmed Street, Sport, Eco and Rain functions for all-weather riding.
Both trim levels come equipped with Showa Big Piston 43mm Separate Function forks up front and a piggyback Showa shock at the back.
Bosch also lends its hand to the brakes with Advanced MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) calipers front and rear, and the standard rubber is set to be a 120/180 set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres.
In an industry first, the bike also features Ride Sharing technology, which allows riders to upload data about their treks. The SRF records bike location, speed, lean angle, power, torque, SoC and energy used/regenerated, which allows uses to replay rides and upload additional content to share.
The Premium model with its 6 kW Rapid Charger, fly screen, heated hand grips and aluminium bar ends will go for £19,990, or £18,490 with the £1,500 Plug In Motorcycle Grant. In Standard trim, the 3kW Rapid Charger-equipped SRF will be priced at £17,990, or £16,490 with the £1,500 grant.
