An electric vehicle, especially a motorcycle, is not the first thing that comes to mind when considering a purchase here in the UAE. However, there are some clear advantages to going electric, including: no need to visit the gas station, no oil, no exhaust, etc. These might seem as trivial affairs since we live in an oil rich region and emissions aren’t talked about here, yet.
In addition to these clear advantages, there are a host of additional benefits of going electric with Zero Motorcycles that are not as obvious. As claimed by Zero Motorcycles, behind the design of each model is a philosophy of simplicity that keeps the weight of the motorcycle low and claims to virtually eliminate all routine powertrain maintenance and yields stealthy acceleration.
From our experience, the Zero S and the Zero SR seem like good machines for daily commute as well as short or medium distance rides around the city. The DS (Dual Sport) version seems ideal for trail runs around Dubai but considering the distance you have to ride before you can hit the trails from Dubai, it might not be an ideal motorcycle unless you live close to the western region or you plan to take the motorcycle all the way on a trailer.
Currently, we aren’t quite clear on the lineup and we will update the list as soon as we get some more info from the dealer.
International pricing starts at $9,999 for the Zero S and goes up to $13,999 for Zero DS.
