Check Out Zero’s New SR-X Concept Bike

Zero Motorcycles was one of the very first electric motorcycles on the market. They’ve continued to innovate, and their technology has been used in a variety of really interesting concept projects, some of which we saw at the Petersen Automotive Museum at their electric motorcycle exhibit back in 2019.

Huge Design has produced a concept semi-fairing bike that truly brings the design into the future. It’s based on the SR-S, including the same power train with the ZF17.3 battery (17.3 kWh) with the Z-Force 75-10 permanent magnet AC motor. No word if they offer the upgradeable range or other performance boosts that can be unlocked for a fee (See Zero’s site for details).

Bill Webb of Huge Design inspired the current generation of the FXE motorcycle.

Here was the Huge Design concept for the FXE. Note the similarities to the new SR-X design.


“The SR-X concept bike strives to hit a design sweet spot for the near future of electric motorcycles by combining clean lines and disciplined design-detailing with the aggressive stance and raw performance found in modern liter bikes,” said Webb. “This bike is an attempt to define a new sub-category for high performance electric, something between a streetfighter and a track bike. We wanted true sport riders to appreciate the subtle and balanced design approach—modern, futuristic and clean without sacrificing the raw-performance look and overtly mechanical appeal of high-performance motorcycles.”
The HUGE team wanted to create a dramatic and low ‘front-heavy’ silhouette with the bodywork that could juxtapose the fully-exposed mechanicals toward the back of the bike in an unconventional way. Impressed by the look of the SR/S chassis and mechanicals, HUGE intentionally designed the SR-X with the raw bike underneath as part of the final composition.

“Working with Bill on the SM concept and FXE over the past few years has led to a great partnership with Huge Design,” said Brian Wismann, VP of Product Development at Zero “When we originally spoke about the SR-X project, I couldn’t wait to see Bill’s clean, structured aesthetic applied to our premium sport platform. The result exceeds expectations and points the way forward for our internal design teams.”


As we’ve long said, electric bicycles, motorcycles and any other electric vehicle isn’t constrained to traditional designs. There’s opportunities to make things very different in both look and functionality. This concept is one step in that direction.
