Press Reviews

The MX delivers more torque, a I found when I first the throttle and the front wheel off the straightaway. And that was on the low power It also differs from street bikes in its braking as both front and rear on the MX are hand-actuated. motorcycle-usa

On the track, the Zero MX has a good pull out of turns, then it seems to go flat with a steady pull up to the top speed. The doesn’t hit hard enough to the jumps out of the corners and, with the upgraded suspension, I didn’t want to get too crazy the jumps. ultimatemotorcycling

Frame Sculpted Aircraft Aluminum Means Lighter, and Faster

At the core of the Zero MX lies the dirt bike frame we’ve engineered from the up and hand crafted using grade aluminum. The resulting of lower weight and higher means more responsiveness. In the and off the line this translates greater acceleration.

This means more and more fun.

Drivetrain Chain and Sprockets for Increased Longer Life

To accommodate the MX’s increased traction and to accelerate in the dirt we use a hardened 420 chain and direct drive The result is a stronger and more drivetrain that puts the from the throttle directly the dirt.
