The “Zero Motorcycles” app is the world’s first mobile application with the ability to control the performance characteristics of a production motorcycle.
Connected via Bluetooth, the motorcycle pushes live, or archived, information from the motorcycle to the app on the rider’s mobile device. Featuring two basic modes, the app displays either a customizable riding dashboard or statistical data about the motorcycle.
Riders can customize the riding dashboard with options such as percentage state of charge, torque, drivetrain component temperatures, battery amps and more. When parked, owners can view a lifetime of information about the motorcycle and have access to compelling statistics such as how much gas money they have saved.
Once paired to a motorcycle, owners can begin customizing settings and feeling good about a host of compelling economical and ecological reasons to ride electric everyday. Among the customizable settings are fields to enter the owner’s cost of electricity, cost of a gallon of gas and the miles per gallon of their alternative vehicle. To bring a little extra joy to every ride, the app uses this information to calculate statistics, such as how much money has been saved on gas, the unbelievably low cost of energy consumed per mile and how much CO2 has been prevented from being released into the atmosphere.
The entire 2013 Zero Motorcycles lineup features the ability to connect to each motorcycle’s cutting edge Z-Force powertrain. Seamlessly integrated into the powertrain, the app also allows owners to send their motorcycle’s diagnostic reports to a technician so that it can be quickly and easily reviewed. There is no additional cost for any of this functionality and the Zero Motorcycles app is free.
