Kawasaki Motorcycles - the Japanese brand has filed patent for electric motorcycle design. The motorcycle manufacturer had made distance from EVs in the past when the competitors were showcasing new design concepts and even proper products (in flesh). The images surfaced online reveal quite a few details of the e-bike - a large battery, air-intake technology and a clutch transmission system.

The e-bike's design looks conventional due to the presence of a fuel tank. But, it actually houses an electric motor and a large battery just under the fuel tank. It seems that the Japanese brand is only going for the patent of the motor and not the whole bike. The motorcycle is also using the 'ram air-intake technology', that is offered on other Kawasaki products that run on petrol and, an oil-cooling system as well. This combination makes the design even more fascinating.

This combination is doing different tasks - the oil-cooling system is cooling the electric motor and the ram air-intake is directing the air towards the battery. Kawasaki seems to come up with the clutch transmission system on the bike, however, a lot of other electric bikes offer clutch-less transmission. The Japanese brand has not revealed details like power output and other technologies that it will be installing in their product as of now but, an e-bike from the stable of Kawasaki Motorcycles will heat-up this segment for sure.
