The absence of noise and vibration makes it an entirely different and better experience. I rode the SR, and the thrill is amazing! I'm going to be watching Zero--if I get a new bike, this would be it. Regrettably, I don't commute and don't ride enough to justify the cost. Wish I did . . . .

What a rush! I had not idea what to expect, but was blown away by the power and speed. The combo of torque and silence and the absence of shifting was exhilarating -- I felt like a little kid the first time successfully riding a bicycle without training wheels. I think these bikes would be awesome for new riders -- might be an avenue to pursue -- ? Thanks so much for the opportunity; Zeros are definitely on our watch list.

I take my Suzuki C50 to On Any Moto for maintenance and oil changes every 6 months to a year after my neighbor recommended them a couple years ago. I've had a great experience every time. They're friendly, knowledgeable, and communicate well. I highly recommend On Any Moto!

The future starts now. I do agree that these bikes are the future. I just feel that they are a bit away from people buying them over the gas engines.
The ride was great, a lot of tourque, smooth ride, no noise(good and bad). I just cant justify buying a 14-19 thousand dollar machine that only gets me 100-167 miles on a charge and takes 5 hours to charge.
Im glad that on any moto had the event, it really was a mystery until now. I just wont be interested in buying until the price goes down and the range goes up. Or they find a way to charge the bike quickly or figure out a battery swap program.
I had a great time on the ride, and hangin out at the event
OAM Response: Thanks for the experience! Your assessment is accurate, but I'd like to address your concerns... 1. Price: While the Zero may be more expensive up front, you actually save $$$ over the life of the bike because of fuel and maintenance savings. You actually feel the benefits in about 1 - 1.5 years of ownership.
2. Range: This is a commuter machine, which most riders use their bikes for. If you need to tour, this is not the bike. 100-167 miles on 1 charge costs about $1 - $1.67...vs...3gal gas at $6+.
3. Charging: there are quick charge options available. Thanks again for your experience and for participating in our event!

The Zero Motorcycle is one of the most exhilarating rides I've ever experienced! The DSR is my favorite for communting, but the FXS wins for pure hooligan fun!
