Zero Redefines Dual With The Electric Zero DS

DS Electric Dual Sport

Zero Motorcycles added the DS to its fast growing product It is built on the Zero S supermoto and has similar specs. A 17″ knobby tire replaces the S models 16” The 16” rear wheel wears a street/dirt tire and the front has a DOT 50/50 tire.

The futuristic headlight of the S is replaced by a classic style headlight similar to a BMW Top speed is down 5 mph from the S to 50 Front suspension travel is up 2” to 10” total and remains at 9” for the rear.

Zero also has luggage as an add-on. It can all be yours for $9,950 the federal tax credit of $1000. The you pay could be even less on incentives established in many

As Domenick at AutoBlogGreen points you can find a list of state on Zero’s web site.

When I saw the pics of the DS I was a bit surprised. There had rumors of the bike for a few months but I it would be based on the Zero MX. ridiculously light 156 lb weight, 19″ wheel and 17″ rear wheel and put a sport kit on it. This would addressed the riders who want a legal dirt bike to trails broken up by paved where a DOT legal bike is

Zero has a light kit available on website that lets you do that so this model is already available.

On the other there is a different breed of sport rider in the world. are people who take larger ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) motorcycles the KLR 650 or even a BMW 1200 GS or KTM 990 Adventure and them in terrain most not dare and then ride home on the street. The Zero DS to borrow from this with its round rally similar to what you would see on a generation BMW HP2.

Besides looking cool usually throw a lot of light.

The choice also fits the big category. Often times you see a DOT semi aggressive knobby in front and tame low rolling rear. This set up is used by who do a lot of on and off road riding. The front better off road where front wheel traction is and front tire wear is of a concern. The smooth profile of the tire increases tire and has low rolling resistance.

However, Zero is the first to my knowledge to ever offer tire setup from the It will be interesting to see how the major magazines react to the choice.

be honest; I spent a lot of time round and round in my head Zero’s choice to not model the DS the MX. Eventually I realized basing the DS on the S was a move. The product Zero is a motorcycle built to be electric and incorporates the best from the gas dual sport world. people put their money and start riding this new of dual sport we will see it is best suited for.

Props to Zero for breaking the once again, I can’t to ride one.
