The XP Zero is a new type of electric motorcycle, one that discards conventions and defies expectations. Developed without compromise and built with precision, the XP combines cutting-edge design with state-of-the-art technology, representing a new era of motorcycling.
The XP Zero doesn’t look like a conventional motorcycle because it isn’t a conventional motorcycle. The XP produces twice the torque of a superbike, and accelerates faster than a supercar. The onboard ride computer offers fourteen user-customised performance profiles, switchable on-the-fly, that transform the XP from a cruiser on the motorway, to a cafe racer in the twisties.
