Re: Zero Motorcycle's 2014 model line now available in ...

We were lucky enough to have Zero Motorcycles at our National Plug-In event, with *three* different Zero models! I rode both the FX and the DS (it was the police-optioned model, so I had to stay in the parking lot / access road area with that one) and both bikes mightily impressed me. I passed on the SR because the low, 'lean on your arms' seating position would have been Hell for me. The FX was so fast I had no desire to test the warning about inadvertent wheelies and take it out of Eco mode. I rode it for several miles, and aside from the suspension height being a bit tall for me, the bike was fantastic to ride on the road, despite its Dirt Bike Racer configuration. The knobby tires stuck well enough for a test ride, anyway, and the bike was very tractable with the right amount of Regen braking. The DS was more docile in Eco, but it both felt very substantial and handled very well. A brief burst of Sport mode was enough to reassure me that when I get lucky and buy one, I won't be disappointed. I barely looked at the Tesla Model S there.

My ZEV 5000LA, with 8500 watt motor, is now for sale. I doubt I could enjoy riding it again after the Zeros, even if I can find and fix the loose connection in the wiring.

My issues with riding sport bikes have to do with back and arm/hand problems, and it applies to all sport bikes, not just the Zero. I guess I'll comfort myself by saying I'd probably get a Lemon like my ZEV 5000...

The Zero S ZF-9 is re-listed on Ebay. Opening bid: $7500. Check it out. I asked for info and it supposedly belonged to the owner of the largest Zero franchise in the world. It has a larger controller to increase HP and torque, and some cosmetic mods like blue lights and clip-on mirrors. Just searching the brand or model should get you the listing.
