Zero have apparently announced a limited edition carbon farkle package for the SR/F, the "Quickstrike". Truly do not understand what these Zero people are thinking. Was the world clamoring for farkles on a $25000 bike that can only go 100 miles? They really need to get the cost and weight under control, and the range up, and the price down!

Or at least add fast charging.

Saw the lame ass quickstrike in my email. Lame that they cant at least put a limited run bike and throw some brembos and ohlins on it, shed some actual weight or something. nope just a bunch of dumb cosmetic shit.

I dont think Zero cna do quick charging with their current batter tech, the cells are all epoxied together so no way of them being able to dissipate the heat, not to mention the voltage is low.

I think Zero has some exciting stuff in the pipeline according to a post I saw awhile back.

A Zero employee said:

I'd like to believe they were not referring to the Quickstrike lol.

I don't mind farkles but I don't understand limiting it to 100 bikes. With the exception of the carbon fiber fenders, the rest of the bits look like Rizoma add-ons that anyone can buy and install. I guess if you must have the laser-etched Zero name/logo over the Rizoma logo...sure.

It would have made more sense to offer a Quickstrike accessory package that any SR/F or SR/S owner can order and have installed rather than calling it a special edition bike.

I guess that's why I don't work in marketing...lol.

I hadn't thought about electric bikes for Speedway racing. Seems a good application. Thanks for posting the videos. Enjoyed them.
