isn't the zero FX essentially a dirt bike?
why did zero get rid of the MX ?
the FX would make a good trail / dualsport bike & I would love to own one..
if I had $10k laying around I would already have one haha
but it is not a motocross/supercross bike, lacking suspension & chassis strength for big jumps, etc..
on the street & road race track zero & brammo have reached a level of performance parity w similar weight gas bikes.. also makes for a badass commuter or funbike..
offroad enduro, motocross, or supercross, zero now has sufficient power & decent range but lacks the chassis & suspension performance & durability of gas offroad racing bikes.. also due to gas light weight / high energy density compared to batteries, the zero is heavier than similar power / range gas bike..
without parity offroad there will be few sales.. without sales there is no need for marketing, production, or product development..
zero could further develop the MX chassis & add better long travel suspension.. but at what cost??? and will the consumer be willing to pay for it??? apparently not.. yet.
Yamaha & the major brands of course have massive resources to develop these bikes but they to will only follow the market..
I hope the best success for all in the industry but with more competition & choice the consumer / rider will benefit..
