Kawasaki Electric Vehicle EV

The Z EV

Electric Vehicle

The Kawasaki Z EV is the Kawasaki electric motorcycle closest to production specification. This bike will allow riders on an A1 licence to enjoy it's thrilling ride, but that will mean that it's performance will not be quite the same as the Ninja, but we'll get to that. It will have the performance of a 125cc bike, and we know it will house an 11 kW (14.8 bhp) motor that is energized by a 3.0 kWh battery.

The Ninja EV

Electric Vehicle

Instantly, we can see this is based heavily on the bodywork and styling of the Kawasaki Ninja 400. This bike will share components with the Z EV, and will also comply with an A1 licence, however, it is rumored to provide more power and better suit those who want more than just a fun trip to work. Kawasaki are setting the Ninja EV up as the beginner electric sports bike, but performance specifications remain a secret.


The Hydrogen Machine

Kawasaki unveiled plans for a future Hydrogen model, and have given as a glimpse into what this might look like. Some say it looks like a thing of the past with class-style fairing, but others know Kawasaki have put their best heads together to make this bike a thing of the future, with revolutionary technology and eye-catching styling based on the Ninja H2’s design. This is the bike that might see Kawasaki's first Hydrogen engine. Minimal emissions, a water-vapor output and maximum performance could be coming to Kawasaki fans... we just don't know when.


Hybrid Electric Vehicle

The company took the wraps off the hybrid prototype a little while ago, after dropping so many hints and getting everyone excited. However details of the Kawasaki Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) are top-secret for now. But... it is anticipated to be part of the 2024 line-up! 

How does the hybrid engine work?

The hybrid engine will be directed by the rider's riding style and location and surroundings. When the rider is on the motorway, the engine power is activated. Meanwhile, when the rider is traveling through the city or any other urban area, only electric power will be generated. For those twists and turns out in the countryside, the model will use the best of both worlds with integrated hybrid drive technology.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
