7. Zero XU


If you haven’t given electrics much thought as being short-rider friendly, then maybe it’s time to reconsider. With its accessory low seat, the 2013 Zero XU is only 29.1 inches high — the lowest in Zero’s street legal lineup.

Why should you consider a Zero? If your moto needs consist of simply running errands around town or your workplace is less than 40 miles (75 with both batteries) from home, the XU can get you there with ease, and without the complications of shifting since there aren’t any gears — just twist and go.
