Athletic. Resourceful. Ready for anything. Tackle whatever gets in your way—from pothole-ridden boulevards to rock-strewn backwoods. The Zero DS’s commanding stance, long-travel suspension and rugged dirt-ready tires give it go-anywhere capability, while its elevated view makes it easy to navigate busy city streets. Experience your world for the first time with seamless, silent and pure dual sport propulsion.
The Zero DS delivers silent stump-pulling torque, churning up to an outrageous 146 Nm—more than any fuel-burning production literbike. Twist the throttle. With this stealth force hurling you forward, you’ll easily leave gas bikes behind.No shifting, vibration or fumes. The industry leading Z-Force® powertrain effortlessly drives your adventure as your motorcycle seems to silently disappear beneath you.
Long Range Battery Tech
The Zero DS carries the highest power and energy density battery in the EV industry. With over ten years of rigorous off-road experience, the Z-Force® battery confidently delivers you to your destination.
Select the battery size that works for you. Ride up to 328 km city / 156 km highway with an 18 kWh battery by adding a Power Tank accessory to the ZF14.4. Or, shed weight and gain storage space with the ZF7.2.
Charge 6x faster
Grab lunch. Have a coffee. Recharge. Live your life while adding up to 152 kilometers of range for every hour you’re plugged in. The Charge Tank option is compatible with Level 2 charge stations and delivers roughly 6x faster charging than when compared to a standard wall outlet. Depending on the battery, a typical recharge can now take as little as an hour.
Pull the plug on maintenance
Blast down a fire road. Get dirty. Live in the moment. At the end of your adventure the Zero DS only asks that you plug in. No need to replace clogged filters or dirty oil. The Z-Force® powertrain eliminates the fossil burner mess, trading oil, spark plugs, clutches and filters for a motor with a single moving part. The Zero DS’s ripping acceleration is delivered through carbon fiber belt that directly connects the motor to the rear wheel. Chain maintenance is a thing of the past.
Zero’s Z-Force® powertrains are constantly advancing with code updates that deliver performance improvements. These updates are delivered through the Zero App, which download directly from your mobile device to your bike.
