Sexy for an electric bike

mannybianco says:

The past few weeks I have been seeing a flickering in the right hand bottom corner of Dodge Rider’s videos. Is it just me or do you guys see this too? I guess it could just be my browser and/or one or more extensions that’s causing it. But it only happens on Dodge Rider’s videos.

David S says:

You really don’t make any sense when you say that people notice you more on a noiseless bike That’s a very false comment Say there is a pedestrian crossing the street, and he or she is doing their best to cross the street safely, and is using all their senses, especially sight and hearing, and an electric bike or car zooms by with no noise, it could be a terrible situation You should advocate safety to your viewers and be responsible I believe there should be some kind of noise coming from these electric bikes, even if it’s artificial noise Safety first Goodbye

Amber Smth says:

Do you know if the DMV gets you for the non-pertrol tax when you renew in NC?

mvstahl123 says:

I just realized how early i am on this video

Mario Ng says:

Loved the song in the b roll dodge

SWTexan says:

Dodge- is the DSR comfortable enough for a longer ride?  I’m slightly concerned as I’m 6’2″ and 215lbs.  Thanks for the vids- keep them coming!

Jojo Mahama says:

OK James Bond

Ben Hop says:

great review, also like the music (007 ish) . so my generation (the millennials) is apparently destroying the motorcycle market… do you feel this is true?

GSX-R 125 says:

Rather see a more Naked front look then a dirt bike look it now has, but overall they did a good job on the looks

Opility says:

Here before 1080p

David Cole says:

In California where electric bikes are normal. That was pretty hilarious. I would love to see Zero bikes zippin around town. I would LOVE to be the one zippin around with a Zero. From the plenty of years i’ve been on the road its all cruisers with loud pipes, sport bikes with loud pipes, and the occasional dual sport with loud mud spatters. I just got me a ninja 300 so I get excited when i see another biker in the oncoming lane to throw a biker wave to and I can’t wait until one of them is a Zero.


Do you feel yourself grabbing the clutch to slow down on this bike or other electric bikes out of muscle memory?

soulis1000 says:

Hey Dodge Rider! Greetings from Sweden.

Christian Buchan says:

Love you doge

Fuzzy Was says:

Dude. Love the bike but DANG! That song almost killed me!.make it stop

Jeremiah Strong says:

So how do they power scale electric bikes if its not by CubicCentimeters like regular bikes?

I P Freely says:

I remembered from the last zero review to skip ahead several minutes to bypass the never-ending cinematic clips of the bike…

vine1313 says:

Is the Zero a manual, or automatic? I’ve looked, and cant find the answer.

Tyler Sanders says:

These are cool bikes. I’ll give it a few more years though for the price to go down and the capabilities to go up. The thing about electric vehicles is that they’ll improve quickly like technology rather than at the slow rate of internal combustion.

Alexander Strasser says:

Is there braking from the motor? When so, can it be adjusted like in other EVs

speedyme200 says:

116 foot pounds torque?! Makes more than my d16 civic

renynzea says:

As an owner, the thing I like is the zero eliminates excuses. In my car I think “well, I don’t want to go out because I’m low on gas” or “well, I don’t want to go out because I should have gotten my oil changed last week”. With the zero all I worry about is plugging the bike back in when I get home. I look for reasons to go out now, where I used to look for excuses to stay home. I know the bike costs more, but it is hard to put a price tag on the freedom it offers.

DevinJuularValentine says:

I am interested in how it is to ride experience wise compared to a gas bike or moped. To me it seems like it’s going to be a lot like riding a moped but in a motorcycle position and with more power – do you feel like you’re ever missing an element of interaction with the bike – re: gear changes, etc etc

Abhijith mohan jr says:

much love from india ❤️

Zane Hope FZ6 Hundred says:

I am in the market of buying one. But since I’m only 19 and I’ve only been working on my credit for five months reality comes in and says I can only afford the FX, With $5000 down! UGG I hate being young with low credit haha. I’d love to own the SR. But I could settle for the FX for the next year or two

Vesterman says:

So when I roll up to the pump am I putting in 87, 89 or 91 Octane into it?

Ricky Kha says:

Hope this gets cheaper. Still not value for money.

SithLord 69 says:

That is the perfect Urban street fighter. Stealthy and quick.

Greg G says:

When ever I drive my car I give atleast a 2 car lengths distance for motorcycles incase they have to emergency brake. Being a rider myslef I get shit happens and I look out for fellow riders.

Chris Till says:

So you would stick with Zero over Yamaha, Honda etc if they were to release a competitor in the next year or two? I know you meant the other current EVs from smaller brands but I’m interested to know. I agree that Zero are doing a great job.
