The prototype of the first-ever electric motorcycle from Kawasaki has been officially teased in a series of videos on YouTube while certain details like the name as well as the gearbox offered to the electric machine have been revealed online. As per the official videos, the upcoming electric motorcycle will be christened as Kawasaki Endeavor while the brand will be offering the bike with a 4-speed manual transmission.
The brand showcased its EV concept back at the EICMA 2019 while the 4-speed gearbox option was also revealed at that time and the same has been carried into the production. Commenting on the availability of a 4-speed manual unit, the Kawasaki officials stated: “manual transmission not only allows a greater speed range, but it also allows the rider to have greater input when operating the bike.”
Coming to the other details, the brand has decided to keep the things in the dark for now though an online source confirms that the lithium-ion battery pack that is expected to be used on the Kawasaki Endeavor would be capable of churning out 26HP of maximum power. In addition to this, some reports also confirm that the production variant of the electric bike will be very responsive as well as a lightweight product.
The images of the prototype further ensure that the brand has opted for a similar Ninja 300-inspired bodywork for the upcoming electric Kawasaki motorcycle though one can expect the production variant to feature a distinguished and unique design language. The motorcycle will be the first-ever electric machine from the Japanese prodigy which probably ensures that the brand will not base it on an outdated styling to lessen the customer’s enthusiasm.
Once launched by the brand, the upcoming Kawasaki Endeavor will lock horns with the electric offerings from Harley-Davidson as well as Zero Motorcycles though the Japanese brand is expected to make it more attainable for its huge fan base across the world.
