Deus & Zero Join Forces For A Carbon All-Electric Neo-Retro Cafe Racer Moto

Despite being founded in 2006 during the height of the supersport and superbike craze, Zero Motorcycles didn’t introduce its first fully-faired sportbike model until earlier this year. And after the immense success of the custom SR/F that Zero commissioned from UMC’s Hugo Eccles, the California-based electric motorcycle marque is once again promoting its new model via a one-off two-wheeler, this time calling on Deus Ex Machina’s Michael “Woolie” Woolaway to craft a neo-retro cafe racer.

Built using Woolie’s typically old-school fabrication and construction techniques, the 2021 SR/S now sports a wildly-impressive single-piece fairing, tank, and low-profile humped cafe tail all made from carbon fiber. Capped off with a hand-formed Zero Gravity windscreen, the one-off fairing also sports a pair of custom aerodynamic winglets, sourced from an F1 car before being given bespoke end-caps inspired by a Porsche race car. There’s also top-shelf Dynamag carbon fiber wheels, a single projector headlight, an Attack Racing top triple, and the rear brake is now controlled via a thumb-operated unit on the left clip-on. To see more of this thoroughly impressive project, you can check out Zero Motorcycle’s website linked below.
