The Kawasaki Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 Spark a New Era

Both electric bikes are now available to order.

Kawasaki is leading the charge in innovation with the introduction of the Ninja e-1 ABS and Z e-1 ABS, two full-size electric motorcycles designed to transform the way we commute. This release marks Kawasaki’s commitment to early adoption of technology, setting a new standard in the world of electric motorcycles.

Early adopters have until Dec. 31, 2023 to seize the opportunity to order the Ninja e-1 or Z e-1, delivering thrills with clean electric vehicle (EV) power and quiet operation. The exhilarating, brushless, electric motor delivers strong, low-end response, ensuring a thrilling ride from the moment the throttle is engaged. The innovative e-boost function allows riders to tap into extra power for stronger acceleration and a higher top speed, providing an unmatched riding experience.

Designed with versatility in mind, riders can choose from multiple power modes, including a WALK Mode for easy maneuvering in parking lots. The lightweight trellis frame, 41-millimeter forks, Uni-Trak linkage and disc brakes draw inspiration from Kawasaki’s 400cc motorcycle, providing a familiar and comfortable feel for riders.

What sets the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 apart is not just their technical prowess but also their distinct ergonomic and styling differences. The Ninja e-1 boasts sporty, full-fairing bodywork reminiscent of the high-performance Ninja line, while the Z e-1 features minimalistic bodywork inspired by Kawasaki’s Z supernaked machines. Both models showcase a new silver and matte lime green color scheme, setting the tone for Kawasaki’s future EV models.

One of the standout features of the e-1 series is the removable dual lithium-ion batteries, offering a nominal voltage of 50.4 volts and a total nominal capacity of 30 amp-hours X2. The batteries, located below the storage box, can be easily removed without the need to disconnect any fuses or switches. With a weight of 25.3 pounds each, they contribute to the motorcycle’s overall lightweight design.

The e-boost function adds an extra layer of excitement to the riding experience, allowing riders to tap into increased power for up to 15 seconds. Activated with a simple press of a button on the handlebars, e-boost can be engaged on-the-fly while riding or when completely stopped. This feature not only enhances acceleration but also contributes to maximizing range and battery temperature.

Don’t miss the chance to be part of the electric revolution. Orders for the Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 are open until Dec. 31. For more information and to secure your next commuter motorcycle, visit www.kawasaki.com or contact your nearest Kawasaki dealer.
