Zero Motorcycles says that “unprecedented demand for electric motorcycles” has motivated its early release of new 2022 models, which are available now. Zero added that getting these models into dealers early will help them put “more riders on electric motorcycles than any other manufacturer.”
2022 Zero S
At the heart of the new 2022 Zero S naked street bike is a proprietary Z-Force 75-5 passively air-cooled, radial flux, interior permanent magnet, brushless motor, with energy supplied by a 7.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. The same setup can be found in the 2021 Zero FXE. Zero claims the new S can manage 89 miles of range through city streets and produces 78 lb-ft of torque and 46 horsepower with a top speed of 98 mph. It’s available in Twilight for $11,195.
2022 Zero DS
The trail-ready 2022 Zero DS (as in Dual-Sport) shares the same base configuration as the S including motor and battery, and Zero says the DS has an off-road range of 82 miles on a fully charged battery. The DS is available in Quicksand for $11,195.
2022 Zero DSR
The 2022 Zero DSR is a high-performance variant of the DS. Although it shares the same Z-Force 75-7 brushless motor, a more powerful 14.4 kWh power pack provides a claimed range of 163 miles of range and a top speed of 102 mph, while producing 116 lb-ft of torque and 70 horses. The DSR is finished in black and has an MSRP of $15,695.
The 2022 Zero S, DS, and DSR are all powered controlled by the company’s proprietary Cypher II Operating System, which manages the motor, battery, Bosch ABS (standard on all three models), and the Bluetooth connectivity module, to pair the machine to the mobile app for rider customizations. All three models also benefit from an updated full-color, optically bonded, 5-inch TFT display.
