YES!! Awesome. Please continue to post updates about the ownership experience. My Brammo is getting long in the tooth, and as a replacement candidate it is pretty much either this or the Zero SRF.

Oh nice rode one a while back, its still in my opinion the best electric motorcycle you can buy. The SRF come's close though. How much was the Eva? If my Empulse ever takes a dump I would seriously pick one up.

I sold my Zero to get this. This bike is a much more well put together machine. The brakes and suspension are much better in quality. The motor never gets power cut to it due to things over heating or the batteries getting low. My Zero would be a different bike if it went below 70% or was hard on the throttle. The fast charger built into it means charging times are more reasonable if I want to go on longer rides and charge when stopping at charge point. If I'm at the right charger I can go from 0-80% in 30 minutes. I'd be willing to test ride the Zero but know how they operate i don't think it will sway me. Zero advertises their bikes on Peak power not sustained power.

I got a good deal. I'd rather not say how much cause the dealers need to make money and I don't think it's good or fair to set an expectation for every customer to get the same deal I did.

Seriously that bike looks sweet, like a proper motorcycle. I really want Zero to do well being a local company and all but that's a nice one.

What does it weigh?

The SRF was at about 50% SOC and still pulling hard =P I wasn't flogging it constantly though. Still passively air cooled. Least the Energica has oil cooling. Have you seen the Eva SS? I like the nice little aesthetic touches they put on the bike. It's like a work of art.
