Kawasaki has filed for a new name - E-Boost which is likely to be used for one of its upcoming electric or hybrid bikes. The Japanese premium bike maker has patented several battery-powered as well as hybrid projects in the past. The new patent only suggests that Kawasaki's electric bike may be closer to becoming a production model than originally thought. 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.
