Based on what I read here and what I see in my 2016, Zero has made enormous progress in the last few years.
- Charging issues resolved
- Effective waterproofing
- Upgradeable firmware
- Chain/swingarm problems resolved with trouble-free belt drive
- Sound chain adjuster
- Long battery warranty, 5yr
- Long tolerance for non-charging
- Good console/controls (button debouncing, etc)
The biggest question marks in my mind are
- Long term parts availability
- Resale value, as I plan to upgrade annually
I've had a wonderful experience and such pleasure that I feel Zero will be at the forefront of an exponential curve (though it may need to ride out any hiccups in the general economy).
