Kawasaki has revealed the Ninja 7 Hybrid for the European market, although full specs have yet to be released. At its core is a 451cc parallel-twin engine with an electric motor, generating a combined power output of 58bhp.

Kawasaki has introduced the Ninja 7, which it claims is the world’s first mass-produced hybrid motorbike, to the European market. The ‘Hybrid Electric Vehicle’ is powered by a 451cc parallel-twin water-cooled 4-stroke engine and a 9kW electric motor with a 48V lithium-ion battery. According to the Japanese manufacturer, the combined power output is around 58bhp, which can be increased to 69bhp utilizing an e-boost mode (active for 15 seconds at a time). The petrol mill alone generates around 46bhp. In addition, the Ninja 7 Hybrid foregoes the typical clutch-gear shifter in favor of paddle shifters on the left side, similar to Honda’s DCT motorcycles. DCT (dual-clutch gearbox) technology was first featured in the Honda lineup on the VFR1200F in 2010.

Other Features of the Kawasaki Ninja 7 Hybrid

The Ninja 7 also has an idle stop function to save fuel, a forward and reverse ‘walk mode’ for low-speed maneuvers and parking, an Automatic Launch Position Finder that allows the rider to select the first gear with the push of a button, and three riding modes – EV, Eco Hybrid, and Sport Hybrid. A full-color TFT screen with Bluetooth connection for notifications and navigation alerts has been borrowed from the Ninja e-1.


Chassis and Hardware for the Kawasaki Ninja 7 Hybrid

The parallel-twin engine of the Ninja 7 Hybrid is snuggled in a steel trellis frame, with the 48V battery pack positioned towards the center to help control the vehicle’s weight. The Ninja 7’s suspension comprises a telescopic fork up front and a mono-shock up back. The hybrid motorbike features the same two front discs with Nissin calipers as the Ninja 400 and Ninja 650. The bike is equipped with 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped on tubeless Dunlop Sportmax Q5A tires.

Kawasaki Ninja 7 Hybrid: Design

The motorbike inherits a dual-pod headlamp and its surrounding body from the 2024 Ninja ZX-6R, while the fairing-mounted turn indicators are similar to those seen on the Ninja 400. The undercowl is matte lime green, while the body panels are silver/black.

According to the manufacturer, the Ninja 7 Hybrid is a mid-size motorcycle with performance equivalent to a 650-700cc bike with rapid acceleration to rival that of a 1,000cc-class supersport model from a standing start. It does, however, have the same fuel efficiency as a 250cc motorcycle. As of now, Kawasaki has released a few specifics about the Ninja 7 Hybrid.

Kawasaki Ninja 7 Hybrid: Pricing and Release Date

The hybrid vehicle is set to be on sale in the United Kingdom next year, with prices to be announced in the coming weeks. The deliveries are expected to begin in April 2024. However, it remains to be seen if this vehicle will be available in the Indian market or if it will stay an international model for us.
