Game Changing Z-Force? Power Pack
A fully modular system
The Zero FX features a fully modular power pack system. With slots for two power packs, you can operate the Zero FX with either one or both slots filled. The modules can be charged either on the motorcycle or elsewhere using optional accessories, giving you the ability to charge without a street-level outlet.
The Zero FX can be purchased with either one module (ZF2.8) or two modules (ZF5.7).
Revolutionary Z-Force? Motor
Thrilling acceleration with 70 ft-lbs. torque
The motor in the Zero FX is configured to produce incredible torque and sits inside the lightest motorcycle in the lineup. The result is thrilling acceleration. Zero Motorcycles designed the Z-Force? motor from the ground up to be compact, efficient and powerful. Completely air-cooled, the motor is designed to provide a fantastic riding experience minus the need for any regular maintenance. When slowing down, the motor generates electricity that is channeled back into the power pack to help extend ride times.
Plug in at any standard outlet
The Zero FX charging system is integrated into the motorcycle and can be plugged in at any standard outlet. No additional equipment is required for standard charging. This allows you to conveniently charge in your garage, at the office or when you stop at one of your favorite places while enjoying a day out.
The Zero FX power pack modules can be removed from the motorcycle and charged separately using optional accessories. This makes it possible to charge the modules anywhere you take them and thereby eliminates the necessity of a street-level outlet. Charging times can be reduced by up to ~75% by using a scalable off-board charging system.
Frame and Bodywork
Light Aircraft Grade Aluminum
At the core of the Zero FX lies the ultimate dirt bike frame that Zero engineered from the ground up and hand-crafted using aircraft grade aluminum. The resulting combination of lower weight and higher strength means more responsiveness. In the corners and off the line, this translates into greater acceleration. To make the frame even more durable, each frame is shot-peened and anodized.
The Magic Ride
Zero worked in close collaboration with Showa to develop suspension systems that provide excellent small bump compliance, predictable control of bigger impacts and exceptionally smooth action under all conditions. Torsional rigidity of the front end improves handling, and a hollow front axle reduces unsprung weight. Suspension settings are completely customizable to meet the demands of a wide variety of riders.
Bosch Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
Powerful. Precise. Control.
The Zero FX features an advanced Bosch anti-lock brake system (ABS) that improves control in a wide array of conditions and ensures the best braking performance.
Wheels and Tires
Paved Road. Dirt Road. No Road.
Pirelli tires are standard on the Zero FX, providing improved traction in a wide variety of conditions, excellent durability and road feel. The Zero FX alloy wheels are designed to reduce unsprung weight while not compromising on strength.
Direct Drive Gearing
Instant torque with a twist
Featuring a clutchless direct drive, the Zero FX is geared for rapid acceleration and maximum efficiency. Without ever needing to shift, the Zero FX provides controlled and powerful acceleration at any speed between 0-85 mph. The carbon fiber belt achieves minimal frictional losses for increased overall range and is integral to making the powertrain maintenance-free.
