To 15 kw Continuous Output
THE WORLD’S LONGEST RANGE AND FASTEST PRODUCTION ELECTRIC MOTOR SCOOTER!
Its all about the range! We wanted to build the world's longest range electric bike with full fairing weather protection for our commuter customer base....We did it!.
Range at 55 mph
Range at 70 mph
Continuous Power Output
Peak Power Output Motor Rating
225 km/ 140 miles
129 km/ 80 miles
79 -83 mph
11 Kw-15 Kw
LRC 11 Kw - EEC LEGAL LIMIT OPTION - This option allows the ZEV to fit within the EEC 11 kw class limit for lower rated riders.
LRC 12.2 Kw - MORE POWER OPTION - Same 40 kw rated motor, but with a 30% larger MOSFET count controller and more amps for heavier riders, steeper grades. (36 USA MOSFET power transistors for maximum heat resistance for hill climbing) More acceleration and higher top speed. Same range as the 11 kw motor if driven at the same speeds (but its hard to resist twisting the throttle to feel that torque roll on). The top speed climbs 3 mph over the 11 kw model to 83 mph.
LRC 15 - MAXIMUM POWER OPTION - 15 kw output for mountainous terrain and higher acceleration.
LRC 6 - COST SAVER OPTION - For the customer who wants a large touring style scooter, but who does not need the range of the 10 Kwh pack. This is the same motor package as the 11 kw bike, but with a smaller 6 Kwh lithium battery package instead of the larger 10 Kwh pack. The range drops to 80 m at 55 mph and 50 m at 70 mph.
LRC 6 MSRP $9100
The Interstate is where this bike excels. Tested on long mountain down grades to push beyond normal operation, the bike was tested at speeds of +90 mph where it tracks flawlessly. The big full fairing and windshield make the bike track well at high speeds without buffeting.
and the video below.
The LRC is a big bike with a 1680 mm / 66.1 inch wheelbase. This is 4 inches longer than a Harley Davidson Super Glide wheelbase. The goal was a big roomy bike for large people and to make the bike comfortable for that long run. BUT- it only has a 28 inch high seat height making it easy to manage for for all size riders. The bike also has a reverse function to aid riders.
The ZEV is in a class by its own. No other electric bike compares to the value of the ZEV
COMPARE AGAINST THE TOP MODELS OF OTHER BRANDS.
ZEV LRC 11-12.2 BEATS THE BMW C EVOLUTION ELECTRIC MOTOR SCOOTER by a huge margin.
- The ZEV has more than 2 times the range of the BMW.
The ZEV has 33% more battery capacity than the BMW in Kwh.
- The ZEV has more than 3 times more storage space than the BMW.
The ZEV costs 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.
- The BMW is an incredibly heavy bike at 265 kg / 583 lbs. Over 45 kg/100 lbs more heavy than the ZEV.
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 lower cost.
ZEV BEATS THE MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE $15,999 ZERO S ZF 12.
The ZEV has 14% more highway range over the ZERO range at the same speed.
The ZEV motor has 2.5 X the torque of the ZERO motor.
The ZEV has the same sustained highway speed as the ZERO advertises of 80 mph.
The ZEV has a bigger battery charger in kw by 38% for a faster charge.
The ZERO lacks the vast storage space of the ZEV and he hauling ability.
The ZEV has a 3 inch lower seat height than the ZERO.
The ZERO lacks the full fairing weatherproofing of the ZEV.
Documented by owner/rider in Russia, the ZEV with 25% less battery capacity than a 12 kw ZERO, ran 35% more distance.
In the 2016 Vetter Challenge, the ZEV LRC ran less watts per mile power consumption than either of the two ZERO based streamliners in the competition and completed the 130 mile run as did the streamliners which each had larger battery packages.
Automatic display ambient light compensation. The lights are brighter in the day when glare makes your panel more difficult to read. On the right is a trip timer which resets at the start of each trip. The odometer is at the bottom right.
High power, high visibility, brilliant LED tail light and turn signals that are visible for 45 degrees off center for enhanced safety at night. These photos are tail light and turn signal on (left photo) , tail light only, right photo -- and the brake is not on!
Brilliant LED daylight driving lights for maximum recognition.
Huge under-seat storage. Deeper in the back, the box goes under the seat latch and can handle full face helmets.
Big enough to load for a trip. (Note the small side compartments in this large box) 62 liter capacity.
More storage in the front over and under the handlebars. Four compartments in total in the front, plus under seat storage.
The battery pack on the LRC is an industry leading 10 kwh. This photo of a customer bike in construction shows the size of the battery pack. 28 battery cells with each cell having 100 ah.
Unique in the world of motor scooters, the LRC uses a double rail chassis of large OD tubing to form the chassis. The rest of the world generally uses a single tube to form the side rails of the chassis, or even just one single backbone tube. The LRC then further makes the chassis rigid by making the battery box a stressed member of the chassis in effect boxing and gusseting the already very strong tube chassis. This is the secret of the ZEV handling qualities. Many assume a motor scooter cannot get down in the twisties and run with the motorcycles. It can if it is built for that ability like a ZEV.
Optional charging ports for charging phones, laptops, or running heated riding clothing in the under seat or main front compartment.
94 mph design speed rated tires, 150 mph test speed. (P Type) for maximum safety. Load capacity index of 60, 531 lbs (241 kg) each.

"Fun to ride bike. It's faster than my Harley Sportster off the line. It's a great ride, no noise, a lot of acceleration, better in traffic than the Harley, and you don't have to take it to the gas station."
"Loving the bike--. Just came back from a 60 mile round trip down the coast, 50-60 mph most of the way (dropping from) 96 -(to) 94 v. That second push of the shift button is a lot of fun."
"First of all still having a blast. I don’t know if it’s because it’s my first motorcycle, first electric vehicle or what, but I just come up with excuses to go out and ride"
"My typical use of the scooter is for a 80 miles round trip commute in heavy Atlanta traffic. Mainly stop and go traffic with a few stretches going up to 80+mph. Range is enormous on this bike and I have zero 'range inhibition' when using it. That was one of my main concerns when sourcing an electric bike. I don't have to baby it either. I run at full throttle when the conditions permit and just use the 3 levels of 'gearing' to save energy when stuck in slower traffic"
"I have been riding as much as possible in the fast lane around town. A lot of people around here still think scooters belong hugging the bike lanes. It blows their minds when they see you passing them in the fast lane. Yesterday a driver pulled along side of me and asked what I had in that bike - a Hemi? I just smiled and told him - just a lot of electricity; you should have seen the shock in his face - priceless".
"First of all, let me say that I absolutely love the bike. It is
fantastic. I have already had it up to eighty on the interstate."
"The scooter is awesome and drives very well. Maintenance is minimal, price per charge also minimal. These were really great trips I had." I have been getting 187 km range in daily driving. (115 miles) I calculate that if ran until near empty--200 km (124 miles).
