Wednesday 19th July Electric Motorcycles

21st Moto Ltd, Whiteoak Garage, London Road, Swanley, Kent BR8 7AQ.

We will leave the Brewery Inn at 10.00 and take the short ride on the M25 to Swanley.

This will be your chance to test ride a Zero electric motorcycle in the company of some other SCUK members. They currently have two demonstrators available to test ride - the SR and the DSR and are awaiting an S, which should arrive in April.

You will need to bring along your driving license, your NI number (this is the only way they can check for any endorsements) and a credit card for a holding deposit (£500) whilst you're out riding which gets refunded once you return.  We will also have to complete an indemnity form which only takes a couple of minutes - this covers you fully comprehensive under their own insurance during your test ride.

If you'd like to start the day with a traditional English Brekkie of Cumberland sausage, two rashers of bacon, fried egg, baked beans, Paris brown mushrooms and grilled tomato for £4.49 then its available from 09.00 at The Brewery Inn, 15 The Street, Ashtead, Surrey, KT21 2AD:  LINK.  We will leave the Brewery Inn at 10.00 and take the short ride on the M25 to Swanley.

Please let me know if you hope to attend and would like a test ride as the number of rides available will be limited by distance and recharging time.

Further Information

At the heart of every Zero is the efficient Z-Force® powertrain, which eliminates the need for the heavy and complex components found in conventional motorcycles.  The Z-Force® motor contains only one moving part, is sealed and air-cooled, and requires no routine maintenance.  Despite its compact proportions, the motor produces up to 116 ft-lb of torque, more than you’ll find in any 1,000cc petrol engined sports bike.  The Z-Force® power pack achieves the highest energy density in the EV industry and is backed by
a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Zero’s seamless technology extends beyond the motorcycle and into the single object that has become the hub of our modern lives: the smartphone.  Zero’s free mobile app is available for iOS or Android and uses a Bluetooth connection to the bike to enable customisable performance parameters. Riders can determine max torque, top speed and levels of regenerative braking to suit their preference. The app also enables the motorcycle’s firmware to be updated remotely, saving time-consuming trips to the dealer.


There are Sport, Dual Sport, Supermoto and Trail model options.  Some models are available with different power outputs, to comply with European licence legislation.

Test Rides

If you have not had the pleasure of experiencing an electric powered Zero motorcycle before, we highly recommend you contact us and come along and give one a try.  Not only are they fun, they are also environmentally friendly. 

Plug-in Grant

This grant of £1500 is available from the Government which we apply for on your behalf and is put towards the purchase price of the bike.  The attached sheet shows prices incorporating the Grant reduction.


Charging a Zero is simple and convenient.  Every Zero comes equipped with a built-in charger that turns any 240 Volt outlet into a “fueling station,” and the connection takes just a few seconds to plug in and unplug. Depending on battery capacity, charging can take from a couple of hours to overnight.  If faster charging is required, there are Zero accessory options available to speed things up.

For fast charging on the go, the available Charge Tank accessory is compatible with increasingly common J1772 public charging stations, and trims charge times to 2-3 hours.  Zero also offers a scalable “Quick Charge” system for rapid charging at home or office.
