‘Zero has the most po­ten­tial’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

Af­ter a 70-mile ride, the En­er­gica and Zero were split by just over a minute, but more im­pres­sively they both did ex­actly what their range claims said they would. On an elec­tric bike, this re­ally is cru­cial. These two bikes prove that elec­tric propul­sion is cer­tainly on the right path, and in­creas­ingly be­com­ing a vi­able op­tion – as long as your life­style suits the range con­straints.

But which is best? En­er­gica and Zero have taken two dif­fer­ent paths. The Eva is a tra­di­tional mo­tor­cy­cle made elec­tric with cut­ting-edge tech, while the SR is more a two-wheeled elec­tric ve­hi­cle – and more ba­sic.

They are very dif­fer­ent, but with a price tag of £26,999 the Eva’s mar­ket is far more lim­ited than the £15,690 SR’S. The Eva is the best ride, but in a de­vel­op­ing mar­ket I can’t help but think its price lends the Zero greater short-term po­ten­tial.
