E-Racer Motorcycle presents the Edge, a Zero SR / F Cafe Racer
Born on the basis of the new Zero Motorcycles SR/F, the Edge has been customized and evolved in three different parts: the front headlight, the side tank area and the passenger’s tail. The bodywork is reversible and it can be mounted without making changes to the original model in terms of structure. In fact, the new equipment can be fitted on the base model preserving its homologation.
The design of the Edge is brought to the essential. The result is a lighter bike than the original version. On an aesthetic level, the livery emphasizes a mix of classic and sport-modern: the tank, partially transformed, is more compact and muscular, the front headlight, a full-led unit, is minimal. The superbike semi-handlebars, the handmade saddle with exclusive hand-stitched texture, the full CNC-machined steering plate, the racing wave brakes and rear AirTender regressive suspension system complete the list of primary changes.
The front full-Led unit, only 7cm in diameter, is composed of a single headlight with three different functions: position light, low beam and high beam. The “sight” of the bike is characterized by two LED day lights. All the components are produced in Germany and fully homologated.
The painting, between the rider legs and under-saddle area is reinforced with LineX, an extremely resistant armor paint, formerly a military patent, which makes the parts scratch resistent.
The E-Racer Audio-Forceback system – E-RAF
For the E-Racer team the design is not enough if it doesn’t evolve the functions, so we asked ourselves: could we improve the safety and driving performance of such a powerful electric motorcycle?
Increasing performance requires more security that’s why we have worked in this field combining the resources of our partners. Sound engineers, audio system experts and programmers worked to develop a dedicated app and hardware to meet this need. The E-Racer Audio-Forceback – E-RAF – will be available for all our customers.
The Audio-Forceback (E-RAF) is composed of an integrated hardware controlled by a BT App to produces high and low frequencies sound waves with a dual function. The first function is to warn pedestrians and other road users of the presence of the electric vehicle’s presence. As the low frequencies are easily audible in the distance, the trebles are more audible in the proximity and helps to understand the direction of the incoming vehicle.
The second function is to provide a force-feedback to the rider. The subsonic speaker produces vibrations that changes according to the speed of the motorcycle to give the rider a sensorial feel of the performance.
