Kawasaki has announced that it will only sell electric motorcycles in some of the developed countries by 2035. The motorcycle maker's electrification ambition came into the limelight two years ago when it unveiled an electric motorcycle concept at the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show.

The EV prototype came based on the Ninja 300 motorcycle but the final version of the bike, however, could use a unique design. Kawasaki had also released the information on the initial specs of the electric prototype. It featured the power of 27 hp for acceleration and an output of 13 hp for cruising. The company also informed that it offered a range of 100 km and weigh 219 kg.
