While the 138 kg KM 3000 is a full-faired sport bike model, the 147 kg KM 4000 is a naked electric street bike. The former has a peak power of 6000W and the latter produces a peak power of 8000W.
Based on DeltaEV BLDC Motor, the electric bikes can achieve a top speed of 120kmph and a riding range of 150 km on a single charge. They come equipped with Combi-brakes, fast charging on board and roadside assistance, making them as appealing as the ICE motorbikes in terms of style and performance. The e-bikes sport modern design with sleek aerodynamic profile, fireproof battery, park assist and many other features.
Both the Kabira e-bikes aim to appeal to the Gen-Z and address range anxiety with ease. "We believe that today’s young and mobile Indian has a strong appetite for powerful bikes simultaneously without causing any damage to the environment... we see significant potential for these bikes in India," said Jaibir S Siwach, CEO of Kabira Mobility.
At present, the EV start-up has two manufacturing plants in the country in Goa and Dharwad, Karnataka with a production capacity of 10000 and 8000 respectively. The company says that is in the advanced stage of setting up India's largest EV two-wheeler manufacturing plant at Dharwad with a monthly production capacity of 75,000 units per month. The plant will be operational from April this year.
