The E-Boost name could also be used for a whole new motorcycle line from Kawasaki.

One of Kawasaki's patent filings also revealed a boost button on a bike, and a video presentation for battery-powered projects showed various modes and power settings likely reserved for different roads and terrain.

On the other hand, Kawasaki's under-development hybrid technology makes use of a very interesting idea that's currently being used in cars. It includes a petrol-powered bike, which also features an electric motor to add more horses when needed. The "boost" button does exactly that and the newly patented E-Boost name seems to be fitting the description of this technology.

Expect the company to roll out its concrete production plans by the end of 2021.
