The Zero MX takes our revolutionary electric motorcycle technology to the track. Incredibly tough and lightweight, the Zero MX uses our newly developed suspension system to absorb aggressive terrain and give you an edge.

Combined with our state-of-the-art Z-Force™ technology and ultra-light frame design, the Zero MX is agile and fast where it counts.
By developing a custom suspension system we have made the Zero MX highly responsive while maintaining an industry leading power-to-weight ratio. During aggressive riding the advanced suspension system and alloy wheels take the hits while smoothly maintaining control. Intensity combines with silence to open up a new world of riding possibilities.

Our proprietary Z-Force™ lithium ion power pack and handmade aircraft grade aluminum frame combine to form a motorcycle that is the fastest, lightest, cleanest, and most fun. Check out the Zero MX features for more info.
At the core of the Zero MX lies the ultimate dirt bike frame that we’ve engineered from the
ground up and hand crafted using aircraft grade aluminum. The resulting combination of lower weight and higher strength
means more responsiveness. In the turns and off the line this translates into greater acceleration. To make the frame even more durable each one is shot-peened and anodized.
Hydroformed top tube for increased strength & reduced weight
Massive swingarm for increased strength & torsional rigidity (better cornering and tracking)
Large cylindrical swingarm cross tube for increased stiffness & suspension response
Thru-axle rear hub for exponentially increased strength & rigidity
Entire frame is shot-peened and anodized for resistance to corrosion and abrasion
Organic frame gusseting for increased strength & smoother body lines
Bodywork is highlighted with new color graphics
Motor and Energy– High Torque and Acceleration
Fueled by Zero Motorcycles’ proprietary lithium ion power pack, the Zero MX delivers more torque than any other motorcycle in its class. This is made possible by our power pack’s ability efficiently dump an incredibly high amount of power as soon as you punch the throttle. Using an advanced monitoring system, each cell in the power pack is individually controlled during charge and discharge. The charger integrates into this system and uses a specially developed charge profile to optimize the power pack’s recharge time.
Think of it this way, fuel systems are to gas motorcycles what electrical systems are to electrical motorcycles. Where others use a small carburetor and fuel pump, we use a highly tuned fuel injection system. We’ve found a way of rapidly flowing more energy out of our power pack than any of our competitors. This means more acceleration and more fun.
Drivetrain – Larger Chain & Sprockets for Increased Durability & Longer Life
To accommodate the Zero MX’s increased traction and ability to accelerate in the dirt we use a hardened steel 420 chain and direct drive gearing. The result is a stronger and more durable drivetrain that puts the power from the throttle directly into the dirt.
Hardened steel 420 Chain
Front & rear accompanying 420 Sprockets
Larger rear sprocket mounting/bolt pattern for increased durability and better management of high torque acceleration
Handling – Faster Turns and Bigger Berms
We want you to be able to take full advantage of the rapid acceleration the Zero MX has to offer. To do this we’ve taken our riders’ handling wish list and built in the features. The result, this electric dirt bike gives you the control you need to for the acceleration you want.
Direct mount (to fork crown) double clam stem for increased rigidity and control
Increased rise and reduced reach stem for better control & stability
Wider, taller, and stronger full sized dirt bike handlebar
Higher strength hardened race headset for longer life & smoother turning
Brakes – Stopping on a Dime in the Dirt
Because you’ll be going faster and harder on our electric dirt bike we’ve added a few things to help slow you down. The 2010 Zero MX electric motorcycle features beefier brakes all around.
4 piston calipers front and rear
9” (224 mm) rotor in front and rear
Increased reservoir size for more responsive braking under high strain
A quick look tells you everything you need to know on the Zero MX. We’ve taken all the important dials and switches and securely located them in a new instrument panel. Accompanying this, is a newer wiring system for increased safety and electrical system longevity. With a bike this desirable, you’ll also be excited to know that this motorcycle comes with a keyed ignition.
Easy access to gauges and switches – ‘quick look’ clustered instrumentation
“Armed” light for increased awareness & safety
Key switch with solenoid for added safety, peace of mind, security and ease of use
Flush mounted rockers switches for speed settings (easy/sport and 30/50mph)
Integrated battery power connector for ease of use and durability
Integrated battery fuse for added safety in handling and adverse circumstances
Wheels and Tires – Hook Up on Technical Tracks
The Zero MX custom alloy wheels are designed to reduce unsprung weight while not comprising on strength. During acceleration instant torque is efficiently channeled into the dirt through a beefy rear tire and directed using an equally aggressive front.
Tall knobbed and grippy full size rear tire - 17X3.5
Large lugged high strength rear rim 17 x 2.5”
Thicker 32h 12g spokes
Custom oversized & reinforced hub
1.6x19 front wheel
Aggressive front tire 19x3.0
Suspension - Designed for the Track
The Zero MX uses our newly developed suspension system to absorb aggressive terrain and accommodate larger riders. Taking advantage of the motorcycle’s low weight, the inverted front fork is one of the beefiest, lightest and most responsive in the industry. Riders can quickly dial it in using the externally adjustable compression and rebound damping. On the rear, our rigid double diamond swing arm keeps the wheel planted using a newly developed custom rear shock with a fully adjustable spring preload and easily tuned damping.
Zero designed lightweight front end
Inverted front fork to reduce unsprung weight (48 mm fork leg)
Fully adjustable rebound and compression damping on the front
Custom rear shock with adjustable spring preload and damping
Unique double diamond aircraft grade aluminum rear swingarm for reduced weight and increased torsional rigidity
Extreme Package – Adding more power to already high performance We offer an ‘extreme package’ for those wanting to ride even harder and faster. The upgrades include a stronger motor and a stronger/smoother front fork.
Higher Power Motor – More Acceleration & Speed
This is your motor if you’re looking to leverage all the latest Zero MX features and push your motorcycle (or yourself) to the limit. It offers more torque and increased acceleration.
* Efficient German built high torque/ high power perm motor * 10% more power than the stock motor for greater acceleration * Greater acceleration * Lighter weight and more compact * Higher efficiency
Stronger & Smoother Fork – Internals are Custom Made Specifically for the Zero MX
For more aggressive riders we’re offering a new stronger and smoother front fork that’s fully adjustable. Using an inverted design this specially developed fork takes the pounding of the track and hides it away in custom designed springs, valves, and damping.
* Additional inch of travel on the front * Inverted design for rigidity & increased responsiveness * Designed for more aggressive riding * Custom valved & sprung
