2012 Zero S ZF9
I just picked up my ZF9 yesterday - check it out:
Picking it up from the dealership (Nor Cal MasterCraft, Pleasanton, CA):
Short charge on the way home at a friend's house:
A brief video of my friend riding:
The video is private and thus cannot be viewed by others...
Congrats on the new ride! Looks sweet. Keep us posted on your new ride (will you be selling the VX-1 or will you be a two EV household??)
The link to the video should work now:
Thanks, it does :-) Pretty quiet controller in that Zero.
And what a shame to have to get rid of a 50Ah Li-conversion Vectrix, I DO hope for you that it can stay in the family!
Congratulations! It looks great. You must have one of the first ones.
I am also still thinking of buying one. Please let us know all the plusses and minusses compared to the Vectrix. Especially with regards to storage and passenger.
Enjoy your new ride and good luck with your decision on what to do with your V.
Brammo still only is showing nice pictures but Zero is already shipping. Well done to Zero!
Congratulation for your purchase.
I was looking for somebody already using the ZF9. I have VX-1 Li+ since May last year, and I'm quite happy with it doing on average 75-85km on charge (50 miles) in city traffic. 6400km an no problems till now. My ride has 5.4 kWh battery, so when I saw 9kWh in the same price I thought lets trade it up.
I visit local dealer of Zero, but unfortunately they didn't have a word more information that what available on the website, neither demo bike to test it. Could you share with us what is the real world range of your ride? I couldn't find anywhere what is the chemistry of ZF9 battery, do you know it? Last but not the least what would be the cost of battery if I have to replace it?
Thanks in advance.
Ride and have fun!
