2019 ZERO DS

Powerful Versatility

Athletic. Resourceful. Ready for anything. Tackle whatever gets in your way—from pothole-ridden boulevards to rock-strewn backwoods. The Zero DS’s commanding stance, long-travel suspension and rugged dirt-ready tires give it go-anywhere capability, while its elevated view makes it easy to navigate busy city streets. Experience your world for the first time with seamless, silent and pure dual sport propulsion.

Torque Beast

The Zero DS delivers silent stump-pulling torque, churning up to an outrageous 116 ft-lb—more than any fuel-burning production literbike. Twist the throttle. With this stealth force hurling you forward, you’ll easily leave gas bikes behind.

No shifting, vibration or fumes. The industry leading Z-Force® powertrain effortlessly drives your adventure as your motorcycle seems to silently disappear beneath you.


Charge 6x faster

The Charge Tank accessory funnels up to 84 miles of riding into the Zero S for every hour of charging when plugged into a Level 2 charge station. One cup of coffee now equals ~30 miles of riding. Or, charge fully in as little as an hour depending on battery size.


Using the Zero Motorcycles App, you can see detailed information about your motorcycle such as the time until charged, average watts per mile, total charge cycles and much more. When parked, the app allows you to set the custom riding mode’s performance profile by adjusting the parameters for top speed, maximum torque and maximum regenerative braking. While riding, your phone transforms into a customized dash that provides detailed real-time motorcycle information. Synced using Bluetooth, the app works on iPhone and Android mobile devices.

Pull the plug on maintenance

Blast down a fire road. Get dirty. Live in the moment. At the end of your adventure the Zero DS only asks that you plug in. No need to replace clogged filters or dirty oil. The Z-Force® powertrain eliminates the fossil burner mess, trading oil, spark plugs, clutches and filters for a motor with a single moving part. The Zero DS’s ripping acceleration is delivered through carbon fiber belt that directly connects the motor to the rear wheel. Chain maintenance is a thing of the past.
