We have all seen electric motorcycle coming onto the market. Until now, we have not seen any true electric customs though. Well White Collar Bikes from Indonesia has fixed that with their Zero SR Electric custom. The White Collar Bikes Zero SR is pretty amazing for an electric bike since the stock Zero is not. Ram Ram’s vision was a vintage styled racer with the option to be turned into a naked bike and that’s just what he created.
The one thing that the Zero has going for it, is the performance and torque produced by the electric motor. If you’ve never ridden an electric motorcycle before, put it on your bucket list. With the torque that rivals most modern superbikes, there was not much to improve on here. The electric motors produce constant on demand power so there is no shifting involved. One thing that Ram ram did improve on was the Zero’s engine sounds. The Zero has a silent mode and mode that amplifies the electric motor noise. Well Ram Ram wanted more sound so he added a microphone hooked up to a 7.5″ speaker, very clever.
If you notice up front there are two master cylinders. Well since there is no clutch on this bike, why add a second one? The answer was to have a right and left side brake master. With the addition of a Brembo 19RCS and 16RCS master cylinder, the rider can brake with either hand.
Ram Ram also wanted to fix the short comings of the Zero’s suspension. As a result, he machined custom aluminum triple clamps to hold Yamaha YZF-R1 forks with 6 piston calipers. Now the rider can rest assure he has the power to control all the torque from the electric motors.
Finally, he the bike to have a tradition vintage racer look. All the bodywork is custom made from fiber glass with a beautiful finish. This wasn’t enough for him though. He also wanted to give the rider the option of converting the bike to a naked streetfighter. To do this, he made the bodywork simple to remove and designed another headlight which bolts in place of the 5″ headlight used with the fairing.
The more and more I look at the White Collar Bikes Zero SR, the more I want a custom electric. Ram Ram has done a fantastic job of showing the world what can be done with an electric motorcycle. Be sure to go check out White Collar Bikes and all their incredible builds.
