Kawasaki may not be a forerunner in the EV market, but they have vowed to only sell electric vehicles in developed countries by 2035.

Yet, the Japanese manufacturer still hasn’t released a single road-ready electric motorcycle.

However, that’s about to change in 2022.

In an announcement from Kawasaki’s CEO Hiroshi at EICMA 2021, the company promises to launch three new electric motorcycles next year.

I would like to share a new commitment with you now. Next year in 2022, we will show a minimum of three electric vehicles globally. That is a promise.

You can watch the entire event below, but know that the electric prototypes were sadly not displayed.

Three new electric motorcycles are the first step in Kawasaki’s prior commitment to release ten new electric two-wheelers by 2025. That leaves barely four years for them to release seven other electric motorcycles to reach their goal.

Idealistic, to say the least. Especially considering we still don’t know how the first three will look or differ in specs.

Last month, one earlier prototype based on the Kawasaki Ninja suggested a less than impressive 10 kW continuous and 20 kW peak electric motor. Kawasaki will need better stats than that if it hopes to convince its large, loyal fanbase to make the switch to electric.

Even if slower than expected, three electric motorcycles indicate Kawasaki is making progress towards going green. The three will release in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
