Zeros have awesome performance, or at least the SR does. I experienced it all of four times. You just have to:
* Live near an excellent Zero dealership (not just any dealer, as many suck).
* Have another awesome bike to ride while your Zero spends weeks or months (yes, months) in the shop.
* Have so much money that you don't care.
I didn't have any of those advantages, so I did a trade with a great guy in MD who really wanted an SR and had a Vectrix VX-1 he'd converted to Leaf cell power. I managed to craft a trade that made us both happy - I got a great electric bike, and cash, and he got a Zero SR. Two years and change later, I'm still happily riding the VX-1, and he has sold the Zero.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
