The XP Zero is a new type of electric motorcycle, one that discards conventions and defies expectations. Developed without compromise and built with precision, the XP combines cutting-edge design with state-of-the-art technology, representing a new era of motorcycling.

The XP doesn’t look like a conventional motorcycle because it isn’t one. With twice the torque of a combustion superbike, riding the XP Zero is like piloting a small jet. Aerodynamic panels support the rider and direct airflow over the motorcycle. Tailorable performance modes transform the XP at the push of a button.
