I’ve looked at a used ZERO MX model at a motorcycle repair shop, that the owner purchased new in 2010, he’s willing to let it go for around $2500 Canadian.
I have it on hold for me, until the end of the month.
He says that it takes 3 hours for the battery to charge from almost empty to full charge.
I did ride it , it’s not as fast as the newer 2018 models.
This used one will hit 55mph / 85kph ,still quite fast for a electric dirt bike.
I’ve poped wheelies with it, the torque is there if needed. It was a fun ride even though it’s used.
The only maintenance is oiling the chain & sprockets & your good to go.
Yeah I'll looked at them a few times. They don't say the battery capacity , but it plugs into a standard outlet(110vac 15 amp (Max)) and charges "overnight" ....so 8hrs(?) and that would include a full discharged battery...right? Then a few solar panels and invertor dedicated to charging it and you would have a 100km plus every few days. Yeah in a hard grid down a really must have.....
Anyone own one of these electric motorcycles?
I did a test ride on one 3 day ago.
Wow , they are fast & very quite when your moving along, Stealthy indeed.
A viable option as a bug out bike, in a EMP event I’m guessing the bike is toast, unless it’s stored in a EMP cage
Buying one new is out of the question, pricy like $8,000 US funds.
Yesterday I managed to get a hold of some electronic engine parts for one of my cars
Main engine CPU . Fuse box etc etc.
My neighbour who’s a car machenic said that’s all I needed in a EMP event, to get the vehicle up & running.
I’ve stored the parts in a EMP cage as well, just in case.
Did get the parts for FREE, which is a blessing that’s for sure.
