Zero's answer to the sports commuter

The Zero SR/F is a huge leap forwards in speed, sophistication and recharge time over the firm’s previous generation of bikes. The result is easily the best road-going electric bike yet, offering truly comparable power, weight, handling and excitement to a regular roadster. But despite closing the gap on petrol bikes, for now the catches remain the same three issues: range; recharge time; and price.

So if you’re waiting for an electric bike which can do everything a petrol bike can, we’re not there yet. But the Zero SR/F marks another significant milestone on the way, continuing to push back battery-powered boundaries. Electric bikes are still coming, and they’re continuing to improve at a faster rate than petrol power.
