- Borrows styling from the existing Ninja models

Kawasaki has been ardently working on its electric motorcycle lineup as the brand recently announced that the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 will be officially launched soon. Now, another model, likely to be called the Ninja HEV has been spotted in Italy on a probable TVC shoot. The Japanese brand could also introduce it at the EICMA 2023 and here’s what we know about it. 

The upcoming hybrid two-wheeler from Kawasaki borrows its styling cues from its petrol counterparts. So, the HEV features a split LED headlight topped by a transparent visor, a muscular fuel tank and a split seat. The overall bodywork looks quite butch and sizeable from the images. Moreover, it could be powered by an 8-volt generator system. It charges once the internal combustion engine is activated. The Kawasaki Ninja HEV might use an automatic clutch that would work in tandem with the electric motor to automatically shift the gears. 

Kawasaki Electric Ninja and Z EV new details revealed!

Meanwhile, the Kawasaki Ninja e-1 and the Z e-1 have also been in the pipeline for a while. These two will be pure electric vehicles and will house a 9kW (continuous power) motor. It will be linked to a pair of battery packs that shall have a combined output of 3kWh. These will be removable and weigh around 24kg combined. Overall, the Ninja e-1 and the Z e-1 will tip the scale at 139kg and 135kg respectively. 

As of now, the Indian electric two-wheeler is largely dominated by scooters. Moreover, Kawasaki is unlikely to launch the electric Ninja and Z here anytime soon.
