There is a new entrant in the electric two-wheeler segment in India, and no, it is not another electric scooter. It’s a high-performance electric motorcycle known as the Kabira KM4000. It comes from a Goa-based startup called Kabira Mobility.
The new Kabira KM4000 electric bike is a naked streetfighter. It reminds us of the old Yamaha FZ-S from the front whereas the side profile, especially the shape of the fuel tank, and the tail lamp are quite identical to those of the Kawasaki Z1000. Interestingly, Kabira Mobility has also launched another electric motorcycle called Kabira KM3000 which is a fully-faired machine reminiscent of the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
Speaking at the launch, Jaibir S. Siwach, CEO, Kabira Mobility, said:
It gives us immense pleasure to be there to launch these ‘Made in India’ hi-speed electric bikes. These bikes are a living testament to technological superiority and styling. We plan to extend our electric bike range by introducing more products to our portfolio. We believe that today’s young and mobile Indian has a strong appetite for powerful bikes simultaneously without causing any damage to the environment, and so, we see significant potential for these bikes in India. We aim to create a strong network that will provide our customers with a world-class experience and encourage the electric super biking segment in India.
