InstrumentationIt tells you just about anything you want to
know.
Top Speed98 MPH (157 KPH)
They say 98 but I have only ben up to 80.
Maybe I will take it up there someday.
AccelerationAwesome 0-60 in a little over 5 seconds. On
cool days it does seem to have a little more
pickup.
RangeThey say 126, but I took it in for service
doing 55-70 mph to make it on time 44
miles away. I did 45 mph on the way home
and made it almost home before it slowed
down and finally died. I think it made it
about 70 miles at highway speeds. Around
town is what I do and it goes all week on
a charge. Five miles to and five miles
from work.

Curb Weight404 Pounds (183 Kilograms)
Conversion Cost$14,995 in Illinois, I paid taxes when I got
to Wisconsin.
The bike is great, I drive it every day it isn't going to rain
during the trip to or from work. At the end of the week it is
down to about 45% charge and I plug it back in for the next
week. If I need to go in to town to pickup something and it is
small, I take the Zero.
