4- These electric motorcycles have a continuous power output of 5 kW (6.8 PS) and a peak torque of 40.5 Nm, with a maximum power output of 9 kW (12 PS). (Photo: Kawasaki)
5- Both bikes have two riding modes: Eco and Road, with top speeds of 64 km/h and 88 km/h in Eco mode, and 75 km/h and 99 km/h in Road mode when the e-boost is turned on. (Photo: Kawasaki)
6- Because of their small battery size, the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 have a limited range, with a claimed maximum range of 72 kilometers on a single charge. The batteries, on the other hand, are removable, and a wall charger can fully charge them in around 3.7 hours. (Photo: Kawasaki)
Steel trellis frames, non-adjustable front forks, preload-adjustable rear monoshocks, 17-inch rims, and disc brakes are standard on the bikes. While their availability in India is unknown, they are scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom in October 2023. Kawasaki has also launched the 400cc four-cylinder ZX-4R in India, with an ex-showroom price of Rs 8.49 lakh. (Photo: Kawasaki)
