2017 Zero SR has electric style

The Zero SR's understated looks bely its torque-filled character.

This is the 2017 Zero Motorcycles Zero SR!

It's the sportiest bike the company makes.

70 horsepower may not sound like much if you're into big sportbikes, but its 116 pound-feet of torque bests just about anything short of a Hyabusa.

It's the range, though, that may be a bit of a problem.

Zero promises 161 miles of range from this bike, with up to 200 with the optional tank-mounted battery.

Opt for that and it'll unfortunately fill this handy little cubby hole.

Unfortunately, we were lucky to get about half that range. With spirited riding, 80 miles is a better estimate.

It will be a nice 80 miles, though. Spirited and fun, and quiet thanks to the electric motor and belt drive at the back.

So if you don't have far to go and want something engaging but still comfortable, the Zero SR is a good choice.

If a somewhat expensive one. The 2017 Zero SR start at $15,995, but that figure goes up $500 for 2018. But along with the bigger price comes a bigger battery pack, and that's a good thing.
