We are at the beginning of seeing more and more electric motorcycles.
Electric vehicles produce very little sound pollution, electric motorcycles are starting to take hold just like electric cars.
With all the noise that happens in the city, it would be nice to have more electric supermoto bikes to create a more peaceful commute around the city.
Just like the gasoline powered supermoto bikes the electric supermoto bikes are really fun to ride and are really functional in the city.
Top 5 reasons you should choose an electric supermoto bike
- Torque = FUN
- Lifetime ownership is cheaper
- WAY less maintenance
With that said we still have a small selection of electric supermoto bikes for 2020.
We do have on really good full sized electric supermoto option from Zero Motorcycles.
The 2020 Zero FXS is a fun and efficient supermoto electric bike.
Zero claims that all it costs to charge the Zero FXS is $.40 – $.80 cents.
The Zero FXS ZF3.6 MODULAR will get you 50 miles in the city.
- 5.1 hours (100% charged) / 4.6 hours (95% charged)
- 1.6 hours (100% charged) / 1.1 hours (95% charged) Max charger
The Zero FXS ZF7.2 will get you 100 miles in the city.
- 9.7 hours (100% charged) / 9.2 hours (95% charged)
- 1.8 hours (100% charged) / 1.3 hours (95% charged) – Max charger
Both are impressive but the Zero ZF7.2 has more power and the charge will last longer.
The Zero ZF3.6 has a swappable battery so you could always be on the road if you have extra batteries always charging.
What’s the top speed for the Zero supermoto FXS?
This is the top speed for both battery options in the ZERO FXS. The ZF7.2 has more power but both have the same top speed.
Curb weight for the Zero FXS ZF3.6 Modular
- 251 lb (114 kg)
Curb weight for the Zero FXS ZF7.2 Modular
293 lb (133 kg)
Both the Zero FXS models are perfect electric supermoto options.
You can be quiet and efficient while having great performance and a ton of fun.
Will we see additional supermoto electric bikes for 2020?
I hope so.
Competition for our money is good. I would like to see the larger motorcycle companies come out with their own version of an electric supermoto bike.
