Dirt bikes can make surprisingly good road customs, mostly due to their light weight and the easy tune-ability of most offroad powertrains. But an electric dirt bike? That’s something you don’t often see.
‘Blackbird’ comes from Italian builder Christian Moretti, who runs Plan B Motorcycles from his base in Laveno-Mombello, just outside Milan. Clad in stealthy black bodywork, its inspiration comes from an unusual source.
“The SR-71 Blackbird is one of the most iconic aircraft ever built, and it used the top-notch technology of its time,” says Christian. “Its unbelievable speed allowed it to simply leave missiles behind. Nowadays, electric bikes are arguably the top technology, but are they really working? For sure they can be pretty fast.”
The Zero FX is indeed pretty fast for an enduro bike. When it left the factory, it had a classic dirt bike profile—but Christian has turned it into a sleek road machine.
