The shell is made of high temperature flame retardant material and features a built-in high-precision hardware current limiting chip, which can ensure that each port works within the safe current range, effectively preventing the occurrence of output overcurrent, input overvoltage, output short circuit, etc., greatly improving safety and protecting connected devices.
Tuned Front and Rear Shock Absorbers
43mm USD forks with strong rigidity, significantly improve control over the motorcycle and ensure smooth riding on the road. The center-mount rear mono-shock absorber utilises a high-pressure nitrogen cylinder, 50mm damper body, oversized piston, and high specification internals, so as to respond quickly, effectively absorb vibration caused by small bumps in the road and provides stronger support on rough roads. It is set with a small amount of preload and large rear wheel stroke, improving riding comfort and avoiding fatigue during long rides.
Ergonomic Shaped Seat Cushion
Zontes’ unique automatic cushion production line uses unique anti-foaming sponge forming technology. The result is a soft sponge which fits tight with the cover, and a sponge that does not flake or deform. The one-piece seat cushion is comfortable for long rides, yet full of retro style.
Equipped With Dual Channel ABS
The dual-channel Bosch ABS brake system allows the rider to calmly control the motorcycle in any unexpected situation. The ABS system will add confidence, whether on a loose road surface or riding in cold wet conditions.
Aluminum Alloy Rear Swing Arm
The special technology of integrated forming originates from the in house facilities of Zontes Motorcycles. Through the combination of material and casting technology, the flexibility of aluminum alloy is close to that of steel tube. The material used is very difficult to break under both sheer and torsion loads. The characteristics of aluminum alloy, being lightweight and having good rigidity are brought into full play.
Adjustable Brake Pedal and Gear Shift Lever
Hello Bigfoot! Both the rear brake pedal and gearshift leaver can easily be adjusted to suit different size feet, giving the rider one less thing to worry about and enhanced control over the motorcycle.
Cool Touch Silencer
The full stainless steel exhaust system terminates with an ingenious outer barrel design, assured not to burn the rider or pillion, nor melt their latest designer riding attire.
A large front disc brake of 320mm and a rear disc brake of 265mm provide powerful braking force, with a linear feel in both the hand and under the foot. The front disc brake embraces a radial-type four-piston caliper, produced by leading manufacturer J.Juan, to make emergency braking easier and effectively shorten the braking distance. Fitted with a cover to provide better protection for the brake disc, you are ready for all year round riding.
A well-designed frame effectively reduces engine vibration and eliminates rider fatigue. The strengthened diamond shape of the frame’s forward components improves the rigidity of the frame and ensures a responsive motorcycle in terms of handling.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Imported from Germany, the TPMS is an accurate device reporting important information to the rider continuously via the main display. Warning alerts appear for low pressure, over inflation and rapid deflation, as well as loss of communication with the wheel sensors. The rider can constantly see the tyre pressure and temperature in both wheels and is alerted when the battery in either sensor runs low. Correct tyre pressures not only ensure safe operation, but also obtain maximum duration from the tyre life and optimum handling from the bike.
The large forward-facing radiator ensures effective airflow to allow the bike to operate at high speed under high load without fear of temperatures soaring. Equipped with 140mm diameter self-suction radiator fan, it provides ample heat dissipation effect to respond to climbing temperature during low-speed riding. A stylish radiator guard is fitted as standard to protect the radiator from road debris.
Vacuum Formed Rim & Stainless Steel Spokes
Using the latest techniques in rim formation and externally laced stainless spokes, the wheels are light weight and strong, particularly resilient to impact, which is all important given the state of British roads.
BOSCH EFI System
The latest Bosch EFI system integrates functions such as headlight control, fan control, and Sports & Eco fuel-saving mode. Aligned to a newly designed air intake system, the volume of air ingested is 30% larger than that of the earlier 310cc models. A new air filter design and a new muffler, this not only improves the low torque efficiency, but also greatly reduces induction noise.
High Power Magneto
The power generation of high-power magneto is increased; the operating temperature is reduced and the service life is longer; the weight of the magneto rotor is reduced, which further improves the engine vibration and power output; the battery matched with the high-power magneto has greater storage capacity.
Aluminium Alloy Cylinder
Cast and CNC machined in house, the all-aluminium cylinder operates without a liner, which facilitates larger waterways to channel heat away more efficiently. Improved heat dissipation enhances both performance and engine durability.
High Compression Ratio Engine
The 350cc engine has a high compression ratio of 12.3:1 which generates a power output of 29kW/32.8N.m from very low fuel consumption. The development trend and advances in technology of internal combustion engines, sees high compression ratio engines characterised by fuel-saving, environmental protection, and high performance. To be successfully in the use of high compression ratio technology, it is necessary to overcome the technical difficulties in engine material, molding process, structural design and other aspects that are different from the ordinary traditional engines.
Often seen in larger capacity, high performance models, Zontes introduce a slipper clutch to all their latest motorcycles. The movement feels lighter in the hand and if a gear change is mis-timed so as engine and road speed differ hugely, the slipper clutch softens the blow. Unintentional wheel lock ups are avoided, mechanical shock lessened, and rider comfort and safety enhanced.
