Pirelli SCORPION Trail II Tires Selected as Original Equipment on New Zero DSR/X Electric Motorcycle

Zero’s full range of high-performance electric motorcycles come equipped with Pirelli tires.

Pirelli Tire North America announced that Zero Motorcycles has chosen Pirelli tires as original equipment for 2022 and beyond. Zero Motorcycles produces high-performance electric motorcycles that are lightweight, efficient, fast off the line and fun, making Pirelli’s premium, high-performance tires the ultimate choice in helping put the power to the ground.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the Pirelli brand,” said Josh Whitmire, Pirelli director of sales, North America. “We live in a constantly changing world, and Zero is a brand that has taken the next step in motorcycle evolution with a direct focus on high-performance electric motorcycles. At the same time, our development is ongoing each and every day at Pirelli, and together, we see this being an extremely successful partnership that benefits and trickles down to the everyday consumer.” 

The new Zero DSR/X electric adventure bike is the brand’s latest model to be introduced and comes equipped with Pirelli’s SCORPION Trail II 120/70R19 and 170/60R17 tires, which combine the best features of sport-touring and dirt-road motorcycling tires. Pirelli SCORPION Rally STR tires are also available as a performance accessory on the DSR/X for those riders looking for a knobby tire but require demanding grip on-road and added traction off-road.

“Zero Motorcycles is excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Pirelli as equipment on the all-new DSR/X,” said Brian Wismann, vice president of product development, Zero Motorcycles. “Whether we’re developing on-road or off-road motorcycles, Pirelli has always provided our engineers with amazing options that balance traction, efficiency and durability for our customers.” 

Pirelli’s wide range of on- and off-road motorcycle tires come standard across the full Zero Motorcycle lineup. Pirelli tire models selected include the DIABLO ROSSO II on the Zero FXE and S; DIABLO ROSSO III on the Zero SR, SR/F, SR/S; MT 60 on the Zero DS and DSR; and SCORPION MT90 A/T on the Zero FX.
