2023 Zero SR

Ride Into The Future Of Motorcycling With The 2023 Zero SR

With the Zero Motorcycles 2023 range of bikes, they have updated their line to take advantage of the latest technology. The all-new 2023 Zero SR isn’t just a motorcycle, it’s an adaptable ride built on an award-winning steel trellis frame and a coaxial power pivot chassis that make it a top performing electric motorcycling marvel. Powered by a Z-Force 75-10 motor with a top speed of 104 mph, it’s the first model to sport a Z-Force 15.6+ kWh power pack. With that pack, it allows an impressive range of 169 miles and it can charge up in just 1.4 hours, so you’re always ready to hit the road.

Showcasing the ingenuity of this American motorcycle brand, they have included standout features like the proprietary concentric motor and swingarm pivot design. This architecture ensures constant drive-belt tension and maximum torque delivery to the rear wheel. The large-bearing swingarm pivot is custom-designed to offer ample space for the high-performance motor, while the slim chassis waist enhances rider ergonomics and bike maneuverability. With their innovative technology package, the Zero SR includes the Cypher III+ Operating System. That enables the SR to add upgrades that improve torque and speed, adds Bosch Advanced Motorcycle Stability Control, and includes turn-by-turn on-dash navigation, among other enhancements. And all this comes with the added convenience of the Zero App and the Cypher Store, making performance and feature upgrades available at the tap of a finger.

With the SR, you have a virtually infinite arsenal of ride modes at your disposal. The bike comes pre-loaded with Rain, Eco, Standard, Sport, and Canyon modes. From charging speed to GPS navigation, the possibilities are endless. You can monitor your bike in four main areas: Bike Status & Alerts, Charging, Ride Data Sharing and System Upgrades and Updates.

The 2023 Zero SR starts at $16,995 USD/$21,795 CAD

2023 Zero SR Features


The all-new Z-FORCE 15.6+ lithium-ion battery makes the SR capable of a 227-mile maximum range when combined with available Cypher Store upgrades and the available Power Tank accessory (dealer-installed). The battery’s industry-leading power and energy density combined with an aluminum heat-sink housing and thermal transfer interface ensure consistent cell cooling and maximum long-term powertrain performance. Key software upgrades available in the Cypher Store will unlock up to 17.3 kWh of battery capacity and the additional 3.6 kWh Power Tank brings the total available battery capacity to nearly 21 kWh.


Our scalable Rapid Charge System allows the SR to be configured for different charging levels. The all-new SR comes with 3 kW of charging but that can be increased by 10% with the tap of a finger through purchasing on-demand upgrade in the Cypher Store. The SR also comes with the option to add a Rapid Charge Module as a dealer installed accessory that, when combined with the Cypher Store upgrade, brings total available charging capacity to 9.3 kW and will charge the SR’s 15.6+ kWh battery in just over an hour. * Note: SR requires use of included EVSE cord in order to charge on a standard 110 V wall outlet.


Customize your dash. Choose the bike info you want and see it clearly on the full-color 5” TFT display. Multi-mode navigation enables on-the-fly ride mode switching, cruise-control, heated grip control and much more.


The Z-Force 75-10 motor is tuned for the SR to deliver 122 ft-lbs of torque, 73 hp, and 104mph, but when paired with available on-demand upgrades through the Cypher Store, those numbers soar to 140 ft-lbs of torque and 110 hp, effortlessly propelling the SR to a top speed of 124 mph. Pairing Zero’s renowned internal permanent magnet brushless architecture and a passively air-cooled compact design creates class-leading performance and efficiency.


Incredibly light. Unbelievably strong. The steel-trellis frame, custom swingarm and advanced Showa suspension deliver an athletic and intuitive riding experience. The powertrain is perfectly distributed, resulting in a weight-optimized/mass-centralized design, while a dual radial front brake system makes shedding speed as exhilarating as building it.


The SR is equipped with Bosch ABS with the option to upgrade to Advance Motorcycle Stability Control in the Cypher Store with the Performance Boost upgrade. The Bosch MSC System is renowned for dynamic acceleration and improved stability regardless of road surface or conditions. With MSC the full performance capabilities are unleashed, resulting in best-in-class straight-line ABS and cornering brake control, traction control, and drag torque control.
