The historic manufacturer of exceptional motorcycles is investing important resources in the tradition of sustainable mobility, including on two wheels. By 2025, 10 battery-powered models are on the way.
A lot of space in the newspapers is dedicated to sustainable mobility as far as four wheels are concerned.
In reality, the two-wheeler sector must also observe an important situation in terms of mobility transition.
Kawasaki has always been a historic brand when it comes to two wheels. His decision to invest significant resources in electric motorcycles is a fact of how the two-wheeler sector will have to progressively transform into something with zero emissions.
In fact, since 2035 the two-wheeler company Kawasaki has announced that it will only sell electric motorcycles.
These communications “obviously” concern the developed markets, that is the more industrialized ones, while as regards the development of electric motorcycles within the developing markets, the transition times will be decidedly longer.
This news is important as regards a world, that of two wheels, which is hardly the protagonist of such important and definitive proclamations.
Currently if we go to a Kawasaki dealer, we will not have any electric two-wheelers in front of us and therefore this means that Kawasaki's project is quite well defined.
The road map to bring only two electric wheels to 2035 obviously has an intermediate step.
In fact, by 2025 10 battery-powered motorcycles will be presented and this will be the anticipation of a completely electric transition for what concerns the United States of America, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia.
Each year Kawasaki sells around 400,000 motorbikes around the world and going to reprogram all production towards a mobility made of pure electricity is a great challenge.
The place of greatest risk is the United States of America where oil is still something very important and very influential with a practically endless distribution network.
There are no big statements about it and there are no details on what types of bikes and what the price of the bikes will be. We simply have to record how a historic two-wheeler company like Kawasaki has decided to revolutionize its production and position itself within a world as important as that of sustainable mobility.
We repeat, the world of the four wheels does not know by now the day of presentation of new electric or electrified versions but that of the two wheels is still a bit behind and therefore needs important news in terms of development.
