The 2023 ZERO DSR/X is a revolutionary addition to the electric dual-sport motorcycle arena. Born out of Northern California-based Zero Motorcycles, this fascinating piece of machinery isn't merely an enhanced version of its dual-sport positioned predecessor, the DSR. The new model is a fully re-engineered masterpiece flaunting a distinct steel-trellis chassis, superior suspension, and bespoke geometry to ensure your adventure off the beaten path is nothing short of extraordinary. Powered by Zero's most potent electric motor, the Z-Force 75-10X and backed by a high-capacity 17.3 kWh lithium-ion battery, the bike is ready to fuel your wilderness exploration with unwavering power and endurance.
Range and charging are integral aspects of any electric vehicle, and the 2023 ZERO DSR/X addresses these concerns effortlessly. With the fully charged battery, the motorcycle claims a reach of 180 city miles, or 85 highway miles at a consistent 70 mph. The combined range stands at 115 miles and can be enhanced by 20% with the addition of the optional Power Tank, increasing the maximum battery capacity to 20.9 kWh. When it comes to charging times, plugging into a standard socket will recharge depleted batteries to 95% in about 10 hours, while a Level 2 charger can drop this to just two hours. For those seeking to optimize recharge times, the available Rapid Charger module can cut the time down to an hour.
The 2023 ZERO DSR/X is a genuine front-runner in the realm of ADV-touring motorcycles, striking a fine balance between on-road and off-road performance. The bike's impressive ground clearance and suspension travel ensure a smooth, thrilling ride, regardless of the terrain. The motorcycle is guided by a 19-inch wheel at the front, a testament to its off-road capability without undermining its road competence. The updated ZF 75-10X engine spares no punch with a respectable 100 horsepower output and a remarkable 166 ft-lbs of torque. Together, these features culminate in the 2023 ZERO DSR/X, a motorcycle that champions performance, convenience, and sustainability in one comprehensive package.
