On 23 April 2009 the company announced it would establish a distribution network in the Canadian market while getting regulatory approval for selling the motorcycle in Canada. It expects to start selling in Canada by early July 2009.
The 2009 Zero S had an expected range of 81-kilometre (50 mi) on a full charge, with a top speed of 112 km/h (70 mph), a speed it can reach in under four seconds from a standing start. The motor is rated at 22 kilowatts (30 hp). The battery can be recharged using standard 110 V or 220 V plugs. A replacement battery will cost approximately $3,000.
The 2014 range of Zero S have brought various improvements and the option for a powertank accessory which increases the energy by 2.8 kWh. The 2015 model added ABS brakes and 2016 brought a further increase to the battery capacity.
The 2020 Zero S is the current iteration of the bike, featuring a blue and black color scheme, and a base price of $10,995. An optional Power Tank and Charge Tank can be added to either increase range or decrease charge time for under $3,000 a piece, however only one or the other can be installed on the motorcycle at the same time. The bike is also sold with an optional quick charger. The current model of Zero S can get to 95% charge in about 1 hour with max accessory chargers.
