As opposed to normal electric motorcycles which can cost an average of Ksh4.5 million, the Opibus motorbikes will cost around Ksh146,081.

According to the company, the reason behind introducing the bikes to the Kenyan market is aimed at enhancing electric mobility.

The bike’s capacity is powered by two 2.9 kilowatt-hour battery packs which take around four hours to fully charge from a 240-volt plug socket. 

According to Opibus, the bikes are set to be rolled out in other African countries in 2022.

UNEP’s Head of Sustainable Mobility, Rob de Jong stated that the project, which began with 49 e-bikes, was expected to expand in an effort to reduce air pollution and improve national energy security.

In order to lower cost, the company focused on the features as opposed to a flashy outlook that many manufacturers have chosen to sell. The motorbikes can arrive at a top speed of 90km/h in just five seconds. Further, the bikes have a peak torque of 12 brake horsepower (BHP) and can travel up to 201 kilometres on a full charge.
