Test riding Zero Motorcycles

Zero Motorcycles are offering test rides at the moment. I had a go on the FXS, SR/F and SR/S. The SR bikes are formidable machines and insanely quick. The FXS is huge fun and very well sorted; it’s probably the more usable bike for day-to-day commuting.

I came away with lots of ideas for my conversion project. The 7.2kWh battery back on the FXS is very compact – there should be enough room for 10kWh on the Dart. The 20kW motor gave the bike sprightly performance up to 85mph, so my target of 35kW should be plenty. On-board charging options are limited (even 6kW is an optional extra), which makes me all the more determined to get rapid DC charging on my Dart…
