Zero SR-X Ultra-Futuristic Electric Superbike
Powered by AI
In 2019 Zero Motorcycles, a leading electric moto-maker, joined forces with Huge Design, a San Francisco-based studio, and specialist in custom vehicles, to create a futuristic one-off supermoto based on the FXS. Named the Zero Motorcycles x Huge Design SR-X Concept, this two-wheeled marvel was created as part of Zero's Design the Future Development Program.
Boasting sleek styling that draws from streetfighter and cafe racer designs, the SR-X is outfitted with an LED bar headlight, internal aero winglets, and an ultra-upswept tail section featuring an integrated circular taillight that seamlessly ties these two genres together. Further setting it apart from its production counterpart is custom carbon fiber fenders both front and rear, rear swingarm sliders/spools, and modified rearsets set on bespoke circular-integrated mounts with passenger peg extension deletes that all help to keep the bike's weight around 500lbs.
The remaining basics, including its frame and powertrain, were borrowed from Zero's SR/S superbike model, using its 82 kW ZF75-10 electric motor and ZF17.3 lithium-ion battery which runs off of Zero's proprietary CYPHER III+ operating system offering 140 ft-lbs of instantaneous torque and around 187 miles in range. Topping it all off is a semi-gloss gray livery embellished by frosted red accents and black branding alongside 07 race numbers for that extra flare.
Although specific plans have yet to be disclosed by either Huge or Zero regarding the SR-X Concept, we can only hope that this groundbreaking design will make its way into production, much like how their previous collaboration spawned the FXE model.
