For 2024, Zero has updated its dual sport range, starting with the DS and DSR. The 2024 Zero DS gets an all-new motor and battery setup. The same Z-Force 75-7 motor that also powers the completely revamped 2024 Zero S also gives life to the 2024 DS.
Notably, the 2024 Zero SR (a Europe-only model) and DSR are both available in A2-compatible versions in the European market. In the future, a simple visit to your local Zero dealer can upgrade them to their full-fat versions—so riders effectively have a bike that grows with their (tested) abilities. This is something that sets Zero apart in 2023.
