This is the 2020 FXS supermoto electric motorcycle from Zero Motorcycles.
This is the Californian company’s 2020 version of the FXS with a 7.2 kWh capacity battery and an 11 kW motor, which makes it a bike which can be ridden by learners with L plates.
But you can forget any notion of equivalent power with a standard 125 cc petrol motorcycle!
Once again, Streetbike of Halesowen, the original Zero reseller in the UK and my nearest dealership, were kind enough to lend me the bike, so thanks to them, once again, for the opportunity.
As with my previous test ride videos, this is from the point of view of someone who has owned and ridden a Zero DSR since 2016 and owned/driven electric cars since 2014, so I make no apologies for using EV terminology which may not be familiar to everyone.
On the road price from Streetbike at time of video is £10,045. That price is with the £1500 OLEV government grant already applied.
