Zero Motorcycles launched the Zero DS, a fully electric dual sport motorcycle for on and off-road riding. Zero has equipped its latest model with aggressive suspension, rugged wheels and dual sport tires. The DS is powered by Zero Motorcycles’s Z-Force electric drivetrain.

With a 4 kWh Li-ion pack, the DS has a top speed of 55 mph (90 km/h) and has a range of up to 50 miles (80 km). Recharge time is less than four hours.
Aircraft grade aluminium is exclusively used in the construction of the lightweight twin spar frame. Each component on the motorcycle is engineered to minimize weight.
Zero Motorcycles first entered the motorcycle category with the launch of the 2008 Zero X electric dirt bike, which sold out in late 2008. This was followed by the launch of the Zero S Supermoto motorcycle for urban use and the Zero MX in June this year designed specifically for track riding and motocross.
