Today we got to test drive the all new Zero FX electric motorcycle from California. AXR has been in the business since 2006 and we’ve personally tried a pushed vehicles to they’re limits and let me tell you some didn’t pass the test! Our fleet of ATV’s Motorcycles, Dirt Bikes, Scooters, and Side by Sides consists of Honda and Suzuki, and a Korean company called Kymco, which offers the sport model 300cc that is full automatic and that beginner riders love.
Comparing the new Zero FX to our CRF250L would be the closest comparison, even though they are completely two different bikes in their own class. My biggest urge was just to jump on the Zero FX and test it out, once we got the crash course through with and done, we were geared up and ready to try it. Loved the idea that it is completely street legal from factory, and well built parts. Specially Jaco Costa Rica, being a beach town we need well built parts so it will last being near the ocean.
Jumping on the bike noticed there was three modes, first we started on “ECO” which had tons of power but brought to you with the right amount of power, was fast, actually faster than i thought, and the coolest was that all you heard was the wind blast by you. After a couple minutes on the bike, we changed it to “SPORT” mode, and Wow! The power was released, up on one wheel and about 90km in just a few seconds, couldn’t phantom the power that it had!
With the charge lasting 150km depending on the driving style this bike may just be a perfect bike for Jaco, Costa Rica. Green, with no emission at all, and perfect for a half day rental or full day rental and have it back at the office for a full charge ready for the next day. Lets see if we add a few of these bikes to our fleet!
