A lightweight adventurer, perfect for the enthusiastic explorer or the everyday commuter. Built around a single cylinder, high compression ratio motor, compatible with an A2 licence.
Keyless Control System
This second-generation keyless control system adopts advanced encryption technology, offers great security performance, and has a newly designed transponder fob which is more compact and elegant. Carrying the induction key, the bike can be unlocked within 1.5 metres (the transponder can be kept in a pocket). Locking is the same, with the transponder remaining secure. The process is a simpler and more secure way of locking and unlocking. The second-generation key also has a built-in chip sensor. Even if the battery is unplugged or completely flat, so long as the key is close to the lower right of the seat, it can unlock the motorcycle.

Bosch EFI System
The latest Bosch EFI system integrates functions such as headlight control, fan control, and sports & fuel-economy mode. A comprehensive operating system for a thoroughly modern motorcycle.
High Power Magneto
The power generation of the magneto is increased; the operating temperature is reduced, and the service life is longer; the weight of the magneto rotor is reduced, which further reduces engine vibration and increases power output. The new magneto is match to a high capacity 10Ah battery.
Few motorcycles in this sector enjoy such a large battery capacity. A 10Ah battery allows rider to connect auxiliary accessories with confidence.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
A tyre pressure monitoring system connected to the TFT display ensures greater rider safety, reduced fuel consumption, and longer tyre life.

An Extra Touch
Below the screen is located a push to open locker, ideal for sunglasses, visor wipes or anything small required to be just at hand.
A strong sturdy forged aluminium alloy rack comes as standard and is large enough to support substantial luggage for onward adventures.
Pure Aluminium 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.
Eco & Sport Modes
A simple press of a button toggles between ECO and Sport modes to suit your ride. Mode selection is clearly visible on the digital display. When ridden in ECO mode, the system will automatically switch to Sport mode when engine speed reaches 7,000rpm; this ensures safe overtakes without compromising fuel economy.
See And Be Seen
Crisp white LED lighting, with ever present daytime running lights, ensure you are seen by oncoming traffic. At night, the bright white light is projected to create a safe field of vision, easing rider fatigue.
Dual Channel Bosch ABS
The dual-channel Bosch ABS system allows the rider to calmly control the motorcycle in any unexpected situation. The ABS system brings confidence under heavy braking, especially in adverse weather and on unstable road surfaces.
Lightweight Alloy Tubeless Rims

LED Tail Light
Sculpted to a perfect fit, the taillight is a crisp LED ensuring following traffic see you and see you brake.
High-Tensile Steel Frame
A strong rigid frame delivers great rider feed back on the road. The front down-tube doubles up as an engine oil reservoir, increasing engine oil capacity and providing additional oil cooling. The increased volume of oil prolongs engine life and enhances performance.
Large Front Brake Disc
300mm front brake discs provide huge stopping power and a linear feeling under braking.
Standard fitment bars off enhanced protection and ideal fitment positions for safari lights.
Centre Mount Mono Shock
A centrally mounted mono shock softens the ride whilst delivering excellent control. Filled with high pressure nitrogen to ensure stability over long journeys and set with a small amount of pre-load, the rear suspension offers excellent comfort with reduced rider fatigue.
High Compression Ratio Engine
A high compression ratio of 12.5:1 ensures the engine delivers great power whilst delivering excellent fuel economy. A power output 26KW and torque delivery of 30Nm, puts the performance of the ZT310-T amongst the leaders of its peers, yet remains A2 licence compatible for riders gaining experience. To successfully use high compression ratio technology, it is necessary to overcome technical difficulties with engine materials, moulding processes, structural design, and other aspects that differ from traditional engines. In doing this, Zontes differentiate themselves from many other Chinese manufacturers.
Often seen in high performance models, Zontes introduce a slipper clutch to their latest models. The movement feels lighter in the clutch 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.
