Electric motorcycles and adventure riding? Yeah it doesn't sound like a match made in heaven - but Zero's longer range bikes are now making this crossover possible. And of course, we wanted to be pioneers here. Especially after Tom and the PBM team custom built the bikes used in Wide of the Mark.
The Zero DSR Black Forest comes with paneers, top box and some off-road capability - so it was the logical electric platform for us to start with. We built in more grit and performance into the bike by protecting the battery pack with a custom guard plate, raised the fenders and increased suspension clearance.
We also wanted to make the bike look more adventurous so we stripped off the standard lights and body kit. We replaced with more rugged, steel powder-coated, custom components. The aluminium face plate is strong, holds a much more powerful headlight and creates the Mad Max vibes we were going for. We also fabricated our strongest tail tidy, fenders, rear and indicator lights to make this beast hard to break.
