Electricity can be so cool


The essence of a Zero SR / S is that of an electrically powered tourer. But if Zero lets the customizer Deus run on the SR / S, then it becomes a real sports cracker.

Michael Woolaway from Deus Customs is known for his successful conversions. The Deus Customs Zero SR / S now presented is in no way inferior to its predecessors. Impressed by the Zero appearance at the hill climb on Pikes Peak, Woolaway turned the Zero into a really electrifying racer with a vintage look.

Full carbon cladding

The distinctive tubular space frame around the battery block was retained. Around this, however, no stone was allowed to remain unturned. The tank bench line has been completely redesigned. The one-piece carbon monocoque combines a dummy tank, the side covers and the stub seat. It is firmly connected to the main frame at the original attachment points. The newly shaped full carbon fiber fairing, which has winglets on the flanks like modern GP bikes, is also a style defining feature. Gray varnish only partially covers the surface, so that the structure of the carbon mats remains visible in many areas. The windshield is hand-blown. A tiny LED headlight sits in the front of the pulpit.

Spring elements from the Showa factory racing stock

The front and rear suspension elements are also absolutely race-ready. USD fork and the fully adjustable shock absorber are racing components in factory specification. Dymag carbon wheels covered with slicks reduce weight and sharpen the look for the long term. J.Juan contributes the braking components. The foot brake lever had to be omitted – it bothered Woolaway’s eyes, because the Zero doesn’t have a gear lever either. A thumb brake now controls the rear stopper. The thumb brake also ensures a little more symmetry at the handlebars, because the Zero doesn’t have a clutch lever either.

Woolaway couldn’t help but make little electrical references. On the dummy fuel tank and on the seat there are lightning symbols as warning notices for the electric drive train.
