The Performance and Value Leader In Electric Vehicles!

2017 Model changes

BIGGER BRAKES.  All of our fast bikes, that have speeds over 70 mph, will see an increase in brake size from 220 mm front and rear to 260 mm front and 240 mm rear. With stopping distances already up to 45 % shorter than competitors at equal weights, the new brakes drop the stopping distances even more and add more fade resistance on long mountain grades or with heavy loads.  

MORE POWER.  The T7100 and S7100 LR have been increased in power to become the new T8500 and the S8500LR - now with an optional 15,000 watts

A COMPLETE REDESIGN OF THE MODEL 2700 with a new chassis, new front bodywork, new rear body, fold up rear seat, 56% larger battery -all at the same price as last years model.

NEW BRAKE CHANGES.  All models destined for Europe have the changes required per country (not all the same in the EU) for the new brake laws.  As the power test is the continuous power yielded after 30 minutes of full load, full
power running, we can qualify the bikes without ABS brake systems using linked rear to front brakes, and race car style brake limiters and proportional bias valves.

Motor Scooters


The LRC stands alone as the world’s only production touring class electric motor scooter. Designed for long daily commuting up to 185 miles on a charge, the LRC is equipped with full fairing for inclement weather conditions, comfortable "all day" two-person seating, and large under-seat and in dash compartments all hurled down the road with 11 kw, 12.2, or 15 kw motors. Priced at $9100 (6Kwh battery), $13,990 (10Kw battery), or LRC-X $15,950 (12.8 Kw battery)


ZEV’s longest running model line, the S-Series acts as a jack of all trades, excelling at whatever driving style necessary for your commute. Perfect for transitioning from stop-and-go traffic to highway driving, the S-Series has the most off-the-line response and acceleration of our current production models. Multiple power packages are available for the S-Series, ranging from 4000 watts to 8500 watts, priced from $4,325 MSRP to $8,990 MSRP.


The multi purpose all around champ. If you need a bike capable of not only spirited road work and daily commuting -but to be a dual purpose bike to climb hills and run up dirt roads--or haul big loads, the T-Series is built with you in mind. A long wheelbase and swing arm makes the T-Series ride smoothly on rough roads. Perfect for packing gear or handling large, unwieldy objects; the T-Series is the pickup truck of electric motor scooters. The rear seat pivots up into a backrest to reveal the load deck for heavy objects. Multiple power packs are available for the T-Series, ranging from 5100 watts to 15,000 watts, priced from $6,614 MSRP.

2700 L

For those who don’t need to travel long stretches of interstate and only need a vehicle for exploring urban areas and running errands, the 2700 L comes equipped with front basket, rear loading platform, and extra-wide foot platform for carrying and storage. On the right hand grip of the 2700 L is a dual stator motor switch, so that you can tailor power consumption around town to your needs. In certain states, this model can be driven without motorcycle license under the moped specification. With the ZEV dual stator motor, it just stomps the performance of the competition.  Priced at $2,875 MSRP.

The chart below we trust will help you find which model is best for you.  We caution that if you want to drive 40 miles a day, do not buy a bike that is rated at exactly 40 miles a day.  Weather, the aerodynamics of the size of the rider, terrain, and the gradual aging of the battery will detract from that number over time.  We recommend that you hedge your needs by at least 25% in terms of range.  Our tests for range and speed are performed to a standard done on a particular temperature day, on a flat road, with a rider of certain size and weight.  Your riding profile may not be the same, so best to hedge your needs by the 25%

ZEV has discovered most of its buyers are commuters. The majority of our customers state that they did not buy the bikes to avoid paying for gasoline nor to be “green”. They bought their bike for the lack of maintenance and the lower associated maintenance costs. No oil and filter changes, no chains and belts to adjust or replace, no carb or injection to clean or adjust, no oily spots on the driveway.

Owners tell ZEV that the time it takes to charge the battery is of little consequence, just so the “tank is full” when they leave for work in the morning. (However, the bikes will charge in 4 hours limited only by the 15 amps available from most home wall plugs) Time savings are also a plus, not only money savings that the owners valued most. Even when maintenance is required, it is a far easier, less time consuming, and less costly affair to go electric than with gasoline.

The more analytical customers document that the time to do all of the maintenance on a gasoline bike, the time going to and from the dealer, and the time to go to the gas station amounts to about 68 hours over 20,000 miles for the gas scooter

Life cycle cost analysis by ZEV customers indicate that it costs approximately 60% less to drive a ZEV than to drive a gasoline fueled scooter of equal performance and cost to the ZEV electric. These customers report full costs not including depreciation of 12 cents/mile. This lack of maintenance and the ability for customers to work on their own electric bikes without high technical skill are one reason the ZEV are sold all over the world even where they do not yet have dealerships. In the areas where ZEV does not have dealers, ZEV will ship the bike worldwide directly to the customer’s door. Service can be done by any normal skilled motorcycle shop as the extreme simplicity of the electric bike and the radically smaller part count and no moving parts make repairs very simple.

-ZEV builds battery integrated into the chassis E bike. This is a radically stronger and lighter way to build a bike.  The chassis rigidity is phenomenal.

-When you double the diameter of a frame tube you increase the rigidity by a factor of over 4. The battery box built into the frame has about a 16 X 1 strength advantage over a conventional round tube chassis, and a lightness advantage. Then there is the elimination of bolted junctions, parts count, things to come loose, and stress at bolt together points elimination.

-The ZEV chassis is hydroformed aluminum to shape the metal to match the stresses for the minimum weight at the maximum strength.

-ZEV uses its oil cooled motor technology on all of its E Bike motors to make them run longer, run colder, and run more efficiently.

-ZEV uses the largest battery in the industry in any E Bike under $7,000 retail for the longest range

Check out what some of our customers had to say about us:

"The motor scooter is gorgeous. Not able to take my eyes off it. Wow!!!!
Great work, --. She is a work of art." - R C

“4300 miles and still going strong. No noticeable battery capacity loss and ride is still great.”

“I think buying an e-scooter is a great deal no matter what time frame. Unlike some bicycle lane hugging toys, these are real motorcycles that can replace the use of a car. IMHO, an e-motorcycle is much safer to ride on roads than an e-bike because you are riding at the speed of traffic. Last year, I went over 3500 miles on less than $30 of electricity! Yes, $30 for a year of transportation. The wife drives our Prius, and I ride the ZEV. My motorcycle insurance runs $100/yr. Compare that to auto insurance. Autos are about 13.5 cents/mile but then you have to add in expenses for tuneups, oil changes, radiator flushes, and maintenance of the hundreds of parts that can fail in today's cars. In contrast, the e-scooter costs less than 1 cent/mile and its drive train only has two moving parts: the hub motor and the throttle; it is practically maintenance free but you still have tires and brakes to maintain. It takes very little time to reach a ROI.”

“But more important than saving over having a car - these scooters are so fun to ride! Everyone has a different reason for riding an EV. For me, it is a political statement, a means to lead by example, cheap transportation, but most importantly - a blast to ride.” –IBScootn Endless-Sphere forum

“My bike arrived by truck yesterday afternoon. Thank you for your professionalism to repair the bike. The Chinese bike companies wouldn't have done such a thing and I doubt if Zero Co. would have cared much. You went beyond the call of duty by cleaning the bike and sending me a new seat. In fact you sent the bike back looking so nice and road ready that I had a hard time convincing the truck driver that it was the same bike he had picked up a few months ago. He thought that he had been hauling a brand new bike. I rode the bike from the drop site for about a mile to my house. It performed great. The hum of that electric motor is a sweet sound. Now I'm eager to get my shovel carrier back on the bike so that I can use it again in the fields. It will be a pleasure to re-retire my gas guzzling pickup truck.” –PK Colorado

"I bought a used ZEV 7100 on Ebay. I calculated that at UK petrol prices, £6.25 per gallon, night rate charging, & based upon a 50 mile range, your 7100 gives the equivalent of over 1000 mpg imperial! ---- but when it comes to 'fuel' efficiency, nothing else comes close. Not even my 185 mpg diesel bike!" -7100 owner on youtube
