With this futuristic one-of-a-kind model, built on the basis of the SR/S, Zero Motorcycles and Huge Design anticipate future scenarios in the electric sportbike segment.
Zero Motorcycles, the global leader in the electric motorcycle and powertrain segment, has unveiled the first images of the SR-X, a unique Huge Design reinterpretation of the SR/S model.
The SR-X was created in collaboration with Bill Webb of the famous San Francisco studio HUGE DESIGN and represents the latest creation of the "Design the Future" by Zero Motorcycles; a creative hub that over the years has been able to produce some of the most innovative electric motorcycles in the world. This program brings together designers and engineers from the motorcycle industry and aims to push the aesthetic boundaries in the world of electric motorcycles.
“This bike is an attempt to define a new sub-category for high-performance electric, something between a streetfighter and a track bike. Partial fairings and aero performance with the raw attitude of the street”, says Bill Webb, key figure in building Zero Motorcycles' vision for the future. Webb was responsible for designing the popular FXE and its predecessor in terms of concept, the Zero SM. The SR-X represents the emblem of his visionary spirit.
“The SR-X clean lines and disciplined ‘product design’ styling approach has been combined with the aggressive proportions and raw functionality/exposed mechanicals found in more traditional race bikes. This bike is an attempt to define a new sub-category for high-performance electric, something between a streetfighter and a track bike. Partial fairings and aero performance with the raw attitude of the street”.

Brian Wismann, VP of Product Development at Zero, was full of praise for the design as well - “When Bill first released his Mono-Racr design in digital form several years ago, I knew immediately that the design language based on clean, simple forms would be a perfect marriage for an electric motorcycle. I’m excited that we were able to realize Bill’s vision of our electric sportbike platform in the SR-X concept.”
The SR-X is powered by Zero's advanced ZF75-10 electric motor and the Californian company's latest lithium battery, the ZF17,3.
Born in a garage in Santa Cruz, California, Zero Motorcycles has grown and in just a few years become an internationally renowned motorcycle company. Starting from the production of the first prototypes in 2006, Zero Motorcycles is today one of the leading companies among the manufacturers of electric motorcycles. Among the various models of Zero Motorcycles we find the SR, the iconic model of the Californian brand with the three versions SR, SR/F and SR/S, the adventure DSR/X and the FXE, a futuristic motard.
