Team Green’s motorcycle division has officially, well, gone green… and here’s what riders can expect to pay for the all-new 2024 Ninja e-1 / Z e-1

As you all know by now, Kawasaki has been putting in a massive effort to realize hydrogen, hybrid, and electric power in our two-wheeled community. The incubating tech in the Big Four’s “HySE” project may not yet be ready for a chassis (and the hybrid’s price remains sotto voce for now), but the all-electric Ninja e-1 and Z e-1 are ready to roll out into our streets at an MSRP of $7,599 USD and $7,299 USD, respectively.

We’re told that Kawasaki‘s Z e-1 weighs 298lb., while the Ninja e-1 tips the scales at 309lb (both wet); for that heft, you’re getting a claimed 41mph of range with a rather lackluster top speed of 52mph – all acquirable after 3.7 hours of charging per battery, or 7.4hrs of total charging. 

Both the bikes are available in just one color option: Metallic Bright Silver/Metallic Matte Lime Green/Ebony – with availability next month to anybody looking to own Kawasaki’s inter-city foray into the electric motorcycle industry. 

What do you think of Kawaski’s 2024 Ninja e-1 and Z e-1?
