Deus ex Machina teamed up with Zero Motorcycles, the worldwide leader in electric motorcycles and powertrains, to create the first fully customized Zero Motorcycles SR/S. This build marks a significant landmark as Deus’ first electric motorcycle and the details are amazing.
Constructed entirely out of a single mold of carbon fiber composites the bike features Show World Superbike forks and shocks, carbon fiber dynamag wheels, and custom race brake components from Spain, a Saddlemen seat, a hand-blown windscreen from Zero Gravity, clear coated panels to show off the carbon fiber, and classic pin striping.
“I wanted to do something kind of old and new, old shapes that I grew up with and new technology, no computer work, just foam, plastic, shaping and measuring tools, transfer tools and kind of the old school way,” said Michael “Woolie” Woolaway. “The Zero bike build is the first electric motorcycle I’ve ever been involved with on any level — and I have always been intrigued… That bike is the perfect platform to build something with because there’s no gas tank really. And there’s this trellis frame that’s beautiful and everything else comes off and there’s nothing there. So in my mind quietly, I was thinking, ‘I’d love to do something with that bike because it’s a blank sheet of paper.’”
