The S-8500 LR was made to pack the largest possible size battery pack for the maximum range into the smallest physical size bike without jumping to a maxi scooter style.  The shorter wheelbase compared to a maxi scooter style such as our LRC makes the S-8500 feel more nimble and quick.  Z Electric Vehicle has the reputation as the manufacturer of “The World’s Fastest and Longest Range Electric Scooters”. We reinforced that  reputation with our S-8500 LR electric motor scooter boasting 130 km/80 mile range and speeds to 120 km/h /75 mph. 

The S-8500 LR utilizes the largest lithium battery pack possible, larger than any competing motor scooter and the vast majority of electric motorcycles.    The total battery capacity of 6 KWh is larger than found in many hybrid cars. This battery pack utilizes  Li-ion LFMP chemistry. This type of lithium battery is used in all ZEV models and is unusual as they have eight connection fasteners on each battery instead of the normal two. (Each terminal end has 4 fasteners) This makes it virtually impossible for the battery to vibrate and loosen the terminal connections.

84 volt nominal system, 60 ah battery cells.


Unique among performance electric vehicles, ZEV products use a hub motor where the motor is contained completely inside the rear wheel. The outside of the motor is the tire rim and the axle is fixed as the stator, thereby eliminating all moving parts except the bearings. This eliminates the need for maintenance of a chain or belt drive and the efficiency losses that arise from using chains and belts. The time needed for the motor to spool up in rpm to generate power like bikes that are powered by a small diameter motor through a chain or belt is also eliminated making the bike very responsive and quick. The torque is instantaneous.

The S-8500 LR was created in response to customers asking for the range of the T-8500, but in the sleeker styling of the standard S-7100. While sharing the same hub motor, controller, and battery pack as the proven and long in production for years T-8500, the new S-8500 LR is a very different vehicle. Obviously the style is very different as the T-8500 has a double frame chassis to carry extreme loads, and a longer wheelbase than the S-8500 LR. The shorter wheelbase and the way that the weight is positioned in the chassis make the S-8500 LR have a more sporty feel being able to be flicked about on a curvy road more aggressively compared to the T-8500.

ZEV BEATS THE BMW C EVOLUTION ELECTRIC MOTOR SCOOTER by a wide margin.

  • The ZEV has 20% more range than advertised by BMW. 
  • The BMW is an incredibly heavy bike at 265 kg /  583 lbs ( according to http://www.bmw-motorrad.com) Over 81kg /179 lbs more heavy than the ZEV. 
  • The ZEV has has about the same under seat storage area as the BMW, but is equipped with a top box direct from the factory for 3 times more storage space than the BMW.  
  • The ZEV costs 45% less than the BMW.
  • The ZEV is faster than the advertised speed of the BMW 

  • The ZEV does not have the belt and sprocket drive wear and maintenance points of the BMW.
  • The ZEV has 150% faster charging rate than the BMW.
  • The seat height of the ZEV is only 28 inches / 711 mm compared to the 30 inches/ 780 mm of the BMW.
  • The ZEV has a much larger, more weather protection windscreen and front fairing protection.  
In Short --The ZEV is lighter, faster, longer range, more storage, more weather proof, lower seat, less maintenance points, and twice the range of the BMW at a far lower cost. 

Customer comment.

Email to a possible buyer from a ZEV S8500 owner "We had the Vespa 250 Gran Tourisimo.  The ZEV we purchased was a perfect replacement.  It has as much get up and go off the line and over the long stretch.  It holds its charge much longer than anticipated and we could not have asked for a better replacement.  In our situation sometimes we went 3 months without running the Vespa.  In Houston's heat, it would cause the fuel to gum up and the Vespa would not start.  

No issues with the ZEV.  In fact, no issues of any kind.  Wehen we need to use it, we simply turn it on and it goes.  It's fast."  DB, Houston Texas

"I own a Zev 8500LR in China. It towers above everything else, in size, quality, performance and looks. At last I can now explore outside the city and travel from city to city. So happy to have this electric bike."  R. Allen, Beihai China.

"Everyday, people look at the bike and ask questions. If I stay stationary for more than a minute I have a small crowd starts to gather. Yesterday the traffic police came over to me and looked all round the bike, smiled and said beautiful bike. They never asked about my licence (I still haven't received the number plate but have the receipt if they want to see it)."     Ron, S China
