European Model Targets Riders Seeking Electric Dual Sport Touring Experiences
Zero Motorcycles, the global electric motorcycle sales and innovation leader, today announced the release of the Zero Motorcycles DSR Black Forest Edition. Designed exclusively for European consumers, the new model has been developed to meet the growing demand of riding enthusiasts seeking to tour on electric. It offers the longest range of any electric dual sport by leveraging the highest power and energy density battery tech in the EV industry. Included in the package is Zero’s game-changing new Charge Tank and a set of premium integrated luggage. On a single charge travelers can enjoy touring through nature with a range of 163 miles at city speeds and 78 miles when on the highway. The new charging tech quickly replenishes the battery at up to 94 miles of range for every hour plugged in. This combination of longer range and faster charging is what makes electric touring possible. Riders can fuel their dual sport adventure using the vast and growing network of Level II charge stations accessible across Europe.
“The Zero Motorcycles DSR ZF14.4 Black Forest Edition is the first model we’ve ever developed to meet the specific demands of Europe’s adventure and touring riders,” said Zero Motorcycles European Managing Director Umberto Uccelli. “Our customers have been asking for a model like this for years. Riding a Zero is the most connected way to move through nature. The Zero Motorcycles DSR Black Forest extends this to new, longer, and more fun adventures. We invite you to experience your world for the first time with seamless, silent and pure dual sport propulsion.”
The Zero Motorcycles DSR Black Forest Edition delivers an impressive 146 Nm of stealthy torque to slingshot riders forward. No clutch or shifting is required on account of Zero’s direct drive Z-Force® powertrain. In addition, performance can be customized using Zero’s mobile app to fit the needs and experience levels of a diverse range of riders.
The distinctly designed new model includes a host of adventure-oriented accessories and options. The Zero Motorcycles DSR Black Forest Edition is fully equipped with:
Charge Tank (optional)
Black aluminum top and side panniers
Dual sport drop bars
LED auxiliary lights (for off-road use only)
Head light protector (for off-road use only)
