2012 Zero S ZF9 Limited Edition Announced for Europe
Zero Motorcycles has announced its first ever limited edition model. Only 30 units of the 2012 Zero S ZF9 Limited Edition will be produced, though at the moment it appears they will only be offered in Europe.
The Limited Edition model was produced to celebrate the Zero S being named eMotorbike of the Year 2012 at Clean Week 2020 this May at Belgium’s Zolder circuit. The Zero S was selected for this honor by a panel of 12 European specialists. The Zero S was also named eMotorbike of the Year in 2011.
The Zero S ZF9 Limited Edition comes in graphite-colored fairing, tail, fenders and battery covers. Add-ons include a Corbin-designed seat, a front cowl with mini windscreen, a 12V accessory outlet, and Zero-branded Pro Grips. Each unit has an individually-numbered brushed aluminum plaque and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
As its name suggests, the Limited Edition model is equipped with Zero’s ZF9 power pack with a battery capacity of 9.0 kWh which Zero claims offers a range of 114 city miles and 63 highway miles on a single charge.
At the moment, the 2012 Zero S ZF9 is only being offered in the U.K. for 12,195 pounds (US$19,315), and France and Germany for 14,495 euros (US$18,156).
