The new Kawasaki Ninja e-1 has many features that can be ideal for everyday urban riding. As mentioned above, the outside body is a full-fledged Ninja 400 body, but with ZERO emissions. The Ninja e-1 features an electric motor that has an output equivalent to 12 Ps of power. While the power may not seem much, it makes up for its torque output at 40 Nm.

On the downside, the battery range is limited to only 55 kilometers per full battery charge. Also, it takes 3.7 hours to fully recharge each battery, so you’ll need two portable charging docks to save on time. On the other hand, it will take almost 8 hours to fully recharge both batteries by using the Ninja e-1's built-in charging dock. 

Also, according to Kawasaki’s Ninja e-1 website, “a charger, charging adapter, etc. are not included with the vehicle.”
