Filson & Zero Team Up On A Ruggedized Go-Anywhere DSR Electric Moto

Jan 29, 2020

For more-than-120-years, Filson has been producing premium, outdoor-focused gear, garments, and goods, though the American heritage brand has now announced that for the first time in its 123-year-history, it will be rolling out a new line of motorcycle-oriented offerings with its new Alcan Moto Collection. To celebrate the occasion, Filson’s partnered with Santa Cruz-based electric motorcycle firm, Zero to churn out a bespoke, ruggedized version of the EV outfit’s 2020 DSR model.

With a 200+ mile range, 116ft-lbs of torque fed through a carbon belt drive, top-shelf Showa suspension fore and aft, and proper dirt-going ergonomics, the DSR is already a plenty-capable machine in its stock form, so the modifications made by the two West Coast companies focused on fortifying Zero’s flagship “do anything” dual sport and bestowing the machine with even greater off-road prowess. These changes consist of aftermarket auxiliary lights mounted to the bike’s new crash bars, upgraded all-terrain tires, a rear luggage rack and side brackets to accommodate a pair of Filson’s Tin Cloth luggage – a material that now adorns part of the Zero’s seat. Finishing touches include a custom muted livery with Filson and Zero branding and a bespoke side rack that holds a hatchet and chainsaw.
