    Strap a Honda generator on that thing and you will have a hybrid.

    Better get where you’re going in 22.5 minutes or less!

    Or, carry an extra battery.

    Who’s looking for a silent motorcycle though? That’s the one thing stopping me from going electric. I want other drivers to know I’m around and look for me.

    “Tactical riding”?

    Go to YouTube and check out videos of other Zero motorcycles. I agree, distance could be better but extra battery packs aren’t too awful heavy to lug around. Keep in mind you are always in the right gear as they are direct drive with no shifting and unbelievable torque and no engine/transmission maintenance. I’m 57 and raced a good part of my life 80cc up to 500cc and these are a blast to ride. I’ll own the civilian model by the end of the year.
    Later…

    It is a bad idea to use upside down front forks on a bike intended for off road travel.
    Rocks and gravel are going to pummel those exposed tubes.
    I’d adapt YZ 250 front suspension to replace that janky street setup if I were going offroad.
    Why do these startup companies try to reinvent the wheel?
    Just make a deal with KTM, Yamaha, or Honda to supply the rolling chassis and install your electrics.
    Speaking of electric.. this thing better be 100% water proof.. ride it through the river and park it in the rain, waterproof.
    Otherwise, you have nothing more than a gimmick.

      YZ-250s have inverted forks too – it would be harder to find an off-road bike without inverted forks, than with.

      Zero isn’t a startup anymore, they have been around since 2006 and selling in volume since 2010. They are also a American company unlike all those you mentioned.

      As for your other statments, the forks have guards, and as just about every bike I’ve seen, Motocross or otherwise has upside down forks, so it must not be that big of a problem.

      The range seems kinda low to me since they have other models with 200+ mile range. They must be trying to hit a certain price or weight point.
