Kawasaki took the wraps off the 2024 Ninja 7 Hybrid, marking a historic moment as the world’s inaugural mass-produced strong hybrid motorcycle. European enthusiasts can look forward to its availability in April 2024 when it hits the market.

The Kawasaki Ninja 7 Hybrid is a groundbreaking motorcycle that combines a gasoline engine with an electric motor, making it the world’s first strong hybrid motorcycle.

Revolutionizing Performance and Sustainability

The innovative technology allows for improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and increased power output.

The Ninja 7 Hybrid boasts a dynamic powertrain, comprising a 451cc parallel-twin engine, a 9-kilowatt (approximately 12 bhp) traction motor paired with a 48-volt battery pack. Together, they deliver a combined power output of 60bhp, with the option to temporarily boost it to 69bhp for 15-second intervals using the e-boost feature.

The Ninja 7 Hybrid represents a groundbreaking milestone in the motorcycle industry

As the world’s inaugural mass-produced strong hybrid motorcycle, it carries the potential to redefine the motorcycle riding experience as we know it.

According to Kawasaki, the Ninja 7 Hybrid not only achieves fuel efficiency comparable to a 250cc motorcycle but also the performance equivalent to a 650cc model. Moreover, it boasts instant acceleration that can rival even that of a 1,000cc SuperSport motorcycle.

Versatile Riding Modes

Riders will enjoy the flexibility of selecting from three distinct riding modes: sport-hybrid, eco-hybrid, as well as EV, each perfectly suited to different riding scenarios.

It also features an idling stop for fuel efficiency and emissions reduction, an Automatic Launch Position Finder (ALPF) for smooth gear engagement at rest, and a walk mode for low-speed maneuvers. Its cycle components include a front telescopic fork, rear mono-shock, and twin front disc brakes.
