I just couldnít help myself, I bought an electric moto. Zero SR/S, top of the line beauty of a bike! We had pretty good weather for November, so I got in some riding.

More pix
Took a 50 mi spin yesterday, looking forward to experimenting with ride modes, range, and charging.

How do you manage the "engine brake"?
Oh yes ... best wishes, it is an important choice ... even complicated but courageous, admiration for everything.

The regen can be adjusted, so you actually get more range in the city and through the twisties. I have yet to try all the configurations, I'm hoping to get some rides in before winter.

Now, if someone (are you listening Piaggio?) would build an electric scooter with at least the range of the SR/S and about the HP and top speed of a BV350 (or even the HP and top end of a GTS). There is a great big huge hole in the market right now.

Beautiful bike. Zero is about 10 miles from my house. I keep thinking I should go ride one.

Harley should have bought Zero rather than investing in the Livewire. They'd be way ahead.

Best

Then why does the BMW C Evolution not sell?

Agreed.

BMW is close with the C Evolution.

Love the new bike! Enjoy what I'm sure will be many I have to admit I'm a bit jealous and I have a corral I'm happy with. THAT would fill that missing niche wonderfully though...

I'd really love to know the 0-60 on your bike. Looking at the current ratings they are getting to my K1600 and man that is saying something.

Can you put panniers or a top case on? I'm guessing it's more sports bike than sports touring though. But wow what a great toy!

It came with both, Shad 39 and composite sides. They look pretty sporty, I hope to do a little touring, researching the charging grid.

Yep that's the one big downside. However charging will become easier and easier as time goes on.
