Dear friends, there's this new electric street bike from Zero Motorcycles making waves. It is called the "Model S," and it's got some serious specs. This sleek bike packs a 14.4 kWh battery, giving it a city range of about 154 miles and around 101 miles for highway commutes.
That's not bad at all. The motor cranks out 68 hp and 97 lb-ft of torque, enough to hit 104 mph, which is pretty impressive for an electric ride.
Plus, they’ve got this optional 6 kW charger that can juice up the battery to 95% in just 1.3 hours, which is lightning fast compared to the standard 9.7-hour charge. It's not just about the power, though. They've decked this bike out with some cool stuff like LED lights, a digital instrument cluster, and a neat storage compartment where the fuel tank usually sits.
You can even swap that out for an extra range if you're up for it. And get this: they're hinting at some downloadable upgrades that might just pump up its performance even more. But here's the catch: they're calling it the "Model S," which might ruffle some feathers over at Tesla.
Tesla has got the trademark for that name when it comes to electric cars, so Zero Zero might be provoking Tesla, you know? It'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Anyway, this bike sounds like a game-changer in the electric motorcycle world.
