Introducing the 2021 Zero FX…

2021 Zero FX Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

TUNED IN TO YOUR RIDE
Crossing from smooth asphalt to loose gravel fire roads? All good. Change performance profiles at the press of a button to master any terrain. The Zero FX is pre-programmed with Eco or Sport modes and performance can be fully customized using the Zero Motorcycles app where you can also see detailed ride stats.

CHARGE. SIMPLY.
Wake up, ready to ride, with a “full tank” every day. No expensive charge station required. A simple 110 V household outlet satisfies all the needs of the Zero FX’s 650-watt onboard charger. Every outlet is now a “fueling” station.

Crave faster refills? Pick up an accessory Quick Charger to cut charge times by over 60%.

YOUR LOW MAINTENANCE RIDE
BUILT FOR RIDING ADVENTURES AND CAREFREE LIVING. FORGET ABOUT MESSY OIL CHANGES, DUST-CLOGGED FILTERS, FOULED SPARK PLUGS, TIME-WASTING TUNE-UPS AND GREASY CHAIN MAINTENANCE. THE ZERO FX’S MOTOR IS SEALED. IT HAS A SINGLE MOVING PART THAT EFFICIENTLY RELAYS YOUR THROTTLE HAND’S DESIRES TO YOUR REAR WHEEL VIA SUPER-EFFICIENT CARBON FIBER BELT-DRIVE SYSTEM. RIDE MORE, EASIER. THE ZERO FX’S ADVANCED BATTERY FEATURES LIFE-OF-MOTORCYCLE CELL TECHNOLOGY THAT’S COVERED BY A FIVE-YEAR, UNLIMITED MILEAGE WARRANTY.

INSTANT “FULL TANK”
There’s no faster way to “charge” than throwing in a fresh battery. The Zero FX’s optional hot-swappable batteries allow you to go from empty to full in seconds. Easily recharge drained modules using off-board charging accessories for a never-ending ride.

STRETCH YOUR ENDURANCE
Cruise through city streets. Or, hit the dirt. Push yourself and ride until your muscles throb or your legs give out. Most Zero FX riders find they’ve hit their endurance limits long before their battery. Continual improvements to the Z-Force® powertrain have imbued the Zero FX with the highest power and energy density battery in the industry. The Zero FX produces an impressive 91 miles of “city” riding on a single charge.

 

 

 

 

 

2021 Zero FX Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

SWAPPABLE BATTERY CAPABILITY
The Zero FX is available in two battery configurations. The ZF3.6 features modular battery technology that allows riders to add a second battery to double range and makes it possible to fully “recharge” by quickly swapping batteries on the fly. The ZF7.2 is fully integrated into the motorcycle and is the more economical option for those looking to maximize the range of the Zero FX.

Zero Motorcycles’ Z-Force® battery is the most power and energy dense in the EV industry. The ZF7.2 offers a maximum battery capacity of 7.2 kWh that delivers up to 91 miles of city riding.

The battery is designed to last and backed by a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty. The Zero FX also features Long Term Storage Mode to optimize the battery’s state of charge and further improve long term battery health.

MOTOR
The Zero FX powerplant produces up to 78 ft-lb of torque. The air-cooled Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor delivers impressive performance and fierce acceleration, which works in conjunction with regenerative braking to channel energy back into the battery.

No heavy, complicated or expensive liquid cooling. No routine maintenance. No fuss. This is the industry’s most efficient, powerful and compact motor.

FACE
The Zero FX’s distinctive face features twin projector beam headlamps and an integrated fly screen, leading the way with a visual style matched to the bike’s sharp attitude.

DASH
Minimalist. Cool blue LCD. The Zero FX dash projects the specs you need: speed, state of charge, power output, selected riding profile, projected recharge time. Sync with your smartphone to turn it into a secondary customizable dash or view detailed ride stats.

SUSPENSION
Custom-tuned by Showa for Zero, the Zero FX’s suspension is rugged enough to handle jagged ruts and rock-strewn trails, while offering 8.6 inches of front travel and 8.94 inches at the rear.

WHEELS AND TIRES
A large 21-inch front wheel ensures the Zero FX hammers through the gnarly bits. Wrapped in high-performance Pirelli Scorpion MT-90 rubber, the Zero FX adeptly traverses dirt, rocks, or asphalt.

BRAKES
The Bosch anti-lock brake system (ABS) delivers confident braking. Tested for just about any situation you can imagine, the system optimizes deceleration under hard braking. The brakes are equipped with adjustable levers for improved ergonomics. ABS can be switched on or off by the rider.

DIRECT DRIVE
Strip away clutches, gears, shifting, chains and all their weighty complexities. Seamlessly accelerate with pure efficiency as energy quietly transforms into propulsion. The Zero FX is direct drive. Its state-of-the-art motor connects directly to the rear wheel using a carbon fiber belt.

ONBOARD CHARGER
The Zero FX’s discreetly accessible 650 W onboard charger can be plugged into any household outlet. Charge times can be slashed by using optional Quick Chargers.

FRAME
The Zero FX’s robust aircraft-grade aluminum frame has been refined for over ten years. A descendant of Zero’s early motocross-style bikes, the frame’s optimized strength-to-weight ratio is the perfect delivery mechanism for the Z-Force® powertrain’s adrenaline pumping acceleration.
