Forbes: Review of the 2018 Zero FXS Electric Motorcycle

My experience with the ZF7.2 taught me that I could expect a reliable 60 miles per charge in mixed riding situations, and close to the full 100 when I rode around town exclusively.

The issue of range might be enough to scare off some potential buyers, but it shouldn’t. The FXS isn’t a touring bike, nor does it pretend to be one. It’s an exciting, lively bike for commuting, weekend rides, and quick hops. Leave it plugged in in your garage, and it’s always ready to go, with minimal maintenance required. You don’t have to worry about your gas going stale in the tank, or keeping track of oil changes, or gapping spark plugs. There’s no clutch to adjust, no cables to lubricate. The FXS has black composite body parts that don’t require wax or paint care, so you won’t need to spend hours detailing and polishing the bike. I really like the rough and ready aesthetic of the bike.
