While you can’t tell a ton from the image, you can see that it looks remarkably similar to the Zero SR. With that said, it should still be an all-new bike built on an all-new platform.
Zero will unveil more details on February 25th. It likely wants to get people talking about its bike again. While it stirred up some commotion with the first teaser of the SR/F, other manufacturers like Harley-Davidson and Lightning Motorcycles have dominated the electric motorcycle discussion since then.
This is Zero’s attempt to steer the conversation back towards itself. I can’t really say much about the SR/F at this time simply because I don’t know anything really other than what you can see from the image.
I assumed the F in SR/F meant the bike gets a fairing. However, from the profile image teased, it looks like another naked street bike with a more aggressive style but still a more upright seating position.
However, much of the bike is still in shadow and it’s hard to make out the details. All I know is that it better be able to match or beat Lightning Motorcycle’s Strike bike on battery range, speed, charging time, and price. That seems to be what the electric bike conversation revolves around.
If Zero can make its new bike for around or under $12,000 and beat the competition in terms of performance, then it’ll have a winner on its hands. More details will come in February.
