Offers a whopping range of 344km and top speed of 188kmph

Goa-based EV startup Kabira Mobility has entered the premium electric motorcycle race by unveiling the KM5000. An electric motorcycle with a pretty radicle cruiser styling. 

Price & Rivals

Priced at Rs 3,15,000, the KM5000, Kabira’s new flagship motorcycle, goes up against the homegrown Ultraviolette F77 with its insane claimed performance and figures, but let's get to that a bit later.

What's New?

  • Flaunts a muscular and sleek cruiser and roadster design language with slightly retro styling, a grand departure from Kabira’s general sporty portfolio of bikes.

  • Bobber-like single seat styling – looks good, but not so practical. The single sided swingarm is worth the attention though.

  • Packs a massive 11.6kWh liquid-cooled battery pack, bigger than any other electric bike in the country. Capable of 0-80 percent charge in just 2 hours with an optional fast charger.

  • With a big battery comes long range – a claimed total of 344km. More than Ultravioltte’s 307km claimed figure.

  • Powered by a mid-drive motor made by Delta EV and is capable of 188kmph. Now that is an insane top speed figure.

  • Features premium hardware – runs on an inverted Showa fork and Nitrox monoshock suspension setup. Twin discs up front and single disc at the rear with dual channel ABS.

  • With this hardware, the KM5000 should ideally offer a great riding experience.

  • Features a 7 inch digital console with 4G connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, music control, TPMS and ride statistics.

  • Kabira Mobility also claims that the e-cruiser will come with an array of customisation options.

  • It will be available in Midnight Grey, Deep Khaki, and Aquamarine colour options and will go on sale sometime later this year, with deliveries starting early 2024.

ZigSays

With the massive claimed figures and promises, the Kabira KM5000 looks like a promising addition to the EV makers portfolio. And also a rather interesting product in the EV market, however, considering our experience with Kabira Mobility electric bikes, we hope that the product is ironed out of any issues before going on sale.

Lastly, it rivals the Ultraviolette F77 and is Rs 65,000 more affordable and claims higher figures than the F77. On paper, it sounds like a much better alternative, but we shall know more when the KM5000 actually debuts, which is slated to happen around September to December 2023. Kabira Mobility will also be launching smaller more commuter-ish EVs including the KM2000 and KM3000 Pro with mid-mounted motors this year itself.
