During the last EICMA, the American company Zero Motorcycles had put on display the new Zero SR 2022 electric motorcycle, a model that starts from the base of the previous Zero SR / F Standard, which resumes improving in all aspects. Now the brand announces its arrival in Italy
At the time of the presentation, the Californian company had talked about a price of 19,300 euros. Now this has been slightly tweaked upwards (presumably due to the higher cost of materials), and the Zero SR in Italy (in Graphite colorway) you can buy it from 19,880 euros.
Those interested can already book a test ride in one of the brand’s dealerships in Italy.
Certainly the cost of this “naked” electric is in line with what is undoubtedly its greatest rival, namely the electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire, which however is currently only marketed in the United States at a price of 20,067 euros ($ 21,999).
