2023 Zero DSR/X Review – First Ride

Zero’s pouch-like battery cells differ from the cylindrical cells more commonly used by EV giant Tesla. You can cram more pouch cells into a given space, which makes it more appealing for a motorcycle application. The frame the ZF17.3 battery is housed in may look the same as the SR/F or SR/S frame, but it is, in fact, all new and built for this application. Same goes for the swingarm.
