One of the more unusual motorcycle displays at the recent 2016 Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) was the Zero Motorcycles stand, where a selection from its range of e-bikes was on display. Front and centre was a carbon-fibre bodied Zero SR sports bike, with 67 hp and 144 Nm of torque, according to Zero’s website.

Mounted in an aircraft-grade aluminium frame, the electric motor powering the Zero SR – an in-house design – is the Z-Force passively air-cooled brushless motor with internal permanent magnet. Wearing fully blacked-out trim, details were difficult to discern about the full-fairing Zero SR, but it can be assumed the specifications wouldn’t differ too wildly from the standard e-bike.

The standard Zero SR, also on display, weighs in at 208 kg in fully-loaded trim, with a carbon-fibre belt direct drive. According to Zero, the SR will got from 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, before topping out at 153 km/h peak top speed, and 95 km/h sustained.

Charging time is said to be 10.3 hours to 100% for the Zero SR ZF13.0 with the Power Tank – the latter adds an extra 2.8 kWh of juice. Range is said to be 317 km for city use, while highway riding at 90 km/h drops the range to 193 km. At a sustained speed of 113 km/h, the Zero SR will go 158 km.

Also on the stand was the Zero FX, a dual-purpose styled e-bike that carries a 44 hp electric motor that puts out 95 Nm of torque. Weighing 131 kg, the Zero FX will pull a top speed of 137 km/h, and has a range of 80 km riding at 89 km/h. Charging time to 100% is 8.9 hours for the Zero FX ZF6.5. ABS is standard on Zero motorcycles, using the Bosch 9 ABS system.

A Zero Motorcycles app downloaded to the rider’s smartphone allows information such as the time until charged, average watts per mile, total charge cycles and others to be displayed. Parameters such as top speed, maximum torque and maximum regenerative braking can also be set from the app.

From Zero’s website, pricing for the Zero SR ZF13.0 is US$16,802 (RM65,400) while the FX ZF6.5 goes for US$9,890 (RM38,500).
