While the Eco mode allows the bikes to be charged in over six hours, the Boost mode charges the bike up to 80% in just 50 minutes. The KM 3000 has a peak power of 6000W and the KM 4000 produces a peak power of 8000W.

Currently, both the motorcycles are being manufactured at the company's manufacturing sites located in Goa and Dharwad, Karnataka.
