Based on its 2019 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb factory race bike, the Zero Motorcycles “Quickstrike” will be produced in a limited edition run of 100 units, worldwide. Using the Zero SR/F electric motorcycle (e-bike) as a base, Quickstrike applies carbon-fibre components and styling changes and is priced at a premium of 999 USD (RM4,159) over the base SR/F price of 21,945 USD (RM91,378).
A stealthy matte black theme underpins Quickstrike, with a black aluminium flyscreen, smoked lens turn signals as well as black anodised lever guards and mirrors. A pair of carbon-fibre mudguards front and rear complete the stealth street fighter look while a Quickstrike tank badge and lapel pin indicate the limited production run.
The Zero SR/F carries a Z-Force ZF75-10 electric motor that delivers the equivalent of 110 hp at 5,000 rpm and 189 Nm of torque is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 200 km/h. The ZF 14.4 lithium-ion battery pack, rated at 14.4 kWh maximum capacity takes 4.5 hours to reach a full charge using a standard 3 kW charger.
Selecting the 6 kW charger option drops charging times by about half, to 2.5 hours, with 2 hours needed to bring the battery pack to 95% capacity. Should domestic current be used, charge time doubles to 8.5 hours, with 8 hours needed for a 95% charge while weight is claimed to be 220 kg while seat height is set at 787 mm with a low or tall seat option.
Suspension uses Showa 43 mm diameter Big Piston Separate Function BP-SF forks, fully-adjustable while the rear of the SR/F is held up by a Showa monoshock, also fully-adjustable. Braking is done by J Juan with twin radial-mount four-piston callipers on 320 mm diameter discs and a single J Juan calliper at the back with 240 mm disc.
