Curtiss Shows Off Yet Another Olympian Creation, The Hades Mount Olympus is getting crowded. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); I’ll say this: while Curtiss Motorcycles has some good intentions by swapping their ginormous V-twin for an electric V-unit, there’s been a lot of talk, but not a lot of doing. Not to say that the team isn’t hard at work on their new direction and products, but we have yet to see anything tangible roll out of the company’s shop.

Zero Motorcycles just revealed its 2020 lineup and the motorcycle that is garnering the most attention is its new 2020 DSR Black Forest. This motorcycle takes the popular DSR to the next level with the addition of three premium hard cases, touring windscreen, touring seat, crashbars, LED auxiliary lighting, and headlight guard. The critical $2,895 option to consider when you purchase the DSR Black Forest is the new Power Tank which adds an additional 3.6 kWh of battery storage capacity which increases range to nearly 200 miles.

As far as ebikes are concerned, that is an impressive range. When you consider the off-road potential you have to factor in the length of the ride to the starting point of your adventure route and then plan accordingly, but this range rivals what you can expect from a gas-powered bike. The point of all this is that Zero is expanding our expectation of the electric motorcycle as it pertains to dual sport and adventure riding, and environmentally conscious consumers are the ones who will benefit from it.

There will be those purists who scoff at the prospect of adventure-touring on an electric motorcycle, but we encourage you to look at it from this perspective. For most riders, an adventure consists of riding paved roads to a destination that includes non-paved roads. These fire roads, jeep trails, and other forms of light OHV are still exciting for many riders and these journeys that are not too far off the beaten path are how new riders build confidence in their skills and their motorcycle.

We feel that Zero is absolutely heading in the right direction by addressing the dual sport and ADV markets. This is not a bike that will take you into the deepest, darkest corners of the planet, that’s what combustion-powered bikes are for. These new electric motorcycles keep inching farther and farther away from the charging station, and that’s great for consumers, great for the industry, and good news for you. The electric motorcycle movement is upon us, folks, and the 2020 Zero DSR Black Forest is proof that manufacturers are pushing the limits, consumers are embracing it, and we are excited to see how far these new bikes will take us.

2020 Zero DSR Black Forest Edition First Look .
New adventure-ready dual sport is a global model; upgrades for the others.Zero released its 2020 model year lineup earlier this week, and while much of the press release was littered with phrases like “refreshed colors and graphics” there was one juicy nugget of info in the headline; the company is adding a model to its dual sport segment. The newcomer is the DSR Black Forest Edition, hailed as the “most capable adventure-ready electric motorcycle on the planet.” But those are Zero’s own words, so maybe we should take a closer look between the lines.
