    2022 Zero FXE review

    Motorcycle.com has just reviewed Zero's revised 2022 FXE electric motorcycle. (Their cheapest and lightest model - and some people say the most fun to ride.) I think they did a nice job with the BNG and styling compared with the previous years' versions: https://www.motorcycle.com/features/...irst-ride.html

    I have been pretty happy with it as the appliance that I use to replace my car for chores and visits within a 50-mile radius. No problems other than a blown on-board charger that I replaced myself after buying a new version from AF1 Racing for $800 (no tax, no shipping). The only time my bike has been to the dealer was for its 600-mile servicing, which set me back $200. My only real complaint is that Progressive charges me about 20% more for insurance than I pay for my R1200RS BMW. When I visit my daughter who lives 38 miles away, I typically use 30% SOC on the battery pack. The ride there consists of about 20 miles of 65 MPH freeway travel and another 18 miles of 40 mph on local highways and streets. I once rode 150 miles on a single charge when the bike was new, but I won't be doing that again as I arrived home with "00" showing on the SOC meter.

    And the other "con" is that the seat must have been made in Italy as it is really hard and I had to install an Air Hawk seat pad to make it usable for more than 30 minutes.
