The all-new Zero SR/F is here


This is without doubt the meanest, most powerful and totally fantastic electric motorbike to ever be sold South Africa. Well it’s not actually here yet but it will be around August if not before, or maybe after. Either way, with Fire-it Up taking on the new Zero SA dealership this new flagship model is impressive to say the least.

Just check out the images and ridiculous power specifications below? Close to 200Nm is accessible instantly and will probably leave everything in its wake off the lights. If you’re wondering about the price, it’ll be over 300k for sure (perhaps), but we don’t care we want one, don’t you?


The SR/F delivers 190 Nm of torque and 110 horsepower with the simple twist of a throttle thanks to the class-leading performance and efficiency of Zero’s new ZF75-10 motor and ZF14.4 lithium-ion battery.


The ZF14.4 lithium-ion battery makes the SR/F capable of a 320 km maximum range. The battery’s industry-leading power and energy density combined with an aluminium heat-sink housing and thermal transfer interface ensure consistent cell cooling and maximum long-term powertrain performance.

* Note: Maximum city range includes addition of Zero’s Power Tank, available fall 2019.



The ZF75-10 motor delivers 190 Nm of torque and 110 hp, effortlessly propelling the SR/F to a top speed of 200 km/h. Pairing Zero’s renowned internal permanent magnet brushless architecture and a passively air-cooled compact design creates class-leading performance and efficiency.

Zero Service.

zerodsr1If you happen to own one of these amazing electric motorcycles then you’re going to be very happy to hear about this? Since the recent collapse of the original importers (no names mentioned), there’s been nowhere to go and get your Zero bike serviced.

Well Craig Langton and the boys from Fire-it Up Motorcycles have taken over and vowed to look after previous Zero customers regarding servicing, back up technology and spares. But not only that, they will also become the new Zero importers and retailers within the next few months, with the new 2019 range of exciting Zero motorcycles on their showroom floor. We, for one, can’t wait to get our legs over these superb machines once again.zerodsr2

So get in touch with the guys at  www.fire-itup.co.za for more information and when you’ll be able to buy and own one.zerodsr3end bike test

Zontes now in Jo’burg!

z01We’re proud to announce that there’s now an official Zontes dealership in Johannesburg. Oh yes, if you’re looking to own any of these new and very impressive Chinese motorcycles, pictured, then these guys will certainly help.

The ‘guys’ mentioned are the crew from Bikeman fronted by the feisty Johnny Shand who’s been involved in the industry for a thousand years, and therefore emits a wealth of experience on all levels.

So we have a couple of 125s under 20k, attractive 250s in all colours and off course the tasty new 310X/Rs. The X model has a full fairing and the R is the naked version, both under 70k.

Get in touch with the Bikeman gang for more information and of course test rides on these exciting new machines from the east. We’ll be testing them shortly, so keep your eye on our New Rides section.
