Zero XU 2011

By Kevin Ash - 15/01/2012

Zero Motorcycles has announced a new model with a power pack that can be removed for recharging.

The XU is designed mainly for city dwellers who are unable to park an electric motorcycle within reach of their charging point. Riders with no street level access or garage can instead remove the battery pack and recharge the bike in their home. In addition, the XU comes with a quick-charge option that reduces charging time to one hour, according to Zero.

The XU is based on Zero‘s X off-road model platform, with new street running gear and bodywork. Cost in the UK is £6,695, which includes a two year warranty.
