Bringing two engines together in one vehicle: one is electric, the other is impossible

A legendary brand has just achieved a historic milestone that, mind you, not even Tesla has come close to. They've merged two engines into one vehicle, and you won't believe the result (not even the experts could have imagined it). One is electric, but you won't believe the other.

For us, it's a feat of mechanical engineering. For many, something impossible to achieve.

This brand wants to rewrite the motorcycle's history: attention to the new proposal

This is not the first time Kawasaki, a legendary Japanese motorcycle manufacturer, has stirred up the industry; however, with Kawasaki patenting an ingenious hybrid motorcycle, things may change. The company has unveiled plans for a new motorbike with built-in mechanical transmission and an electric motor.

While the former is in the form of a motor cycle, the latter is in the form of an automobile where a conventional internal combustion engine is augmented with an electrical motor for supplying drive power and for driving a super charger. This flexibility significantly enhances the capability of the motorcycle to function in electric mode and hybrid electric and supercharging more time based on the speed of the engine, traveling speed, acceleration, gear selection ,and battery charge.

Why to merge to engines into one? This motorcycle could be the most futuristic ever

Of the techniques used in Kawasaki's hybrid design, the most interesting feature is the fact that the supercharger is electrically powered and is powered by the electric motor.

This technology meaning that the motorcycle is able to supply instantaneous boost to the power to the engine without the often lag experienced. The electric motor is positioned forward of the transmission which means it can shift gears even when working in an electric mode of the motorcycle contrary to most electric motorcycles that only have a single gear. Kawasaki has also lodged the 'E-BOOST' name as its trademark in Japan.

More information regarding the trademark is provided below now that it encompasses the use on hybrid and electric motorcycles; thus, Kawasaki continues to advance powertrain technologies, even though they have not made any announcement regarding hydrogen, what we would like to know.

The "Ninja" concept that has experts on edge: it's better than electric motorcycles

This is also evident therefore through the recent investment of £265 million on the expansion of a factory in Nebraska, as well as construction of another plant in Mexico; the company's aimed at developing new products more so in electric, hybrid, and hydrogen power source projects. Kawasaki Motorcycle and Engine business segment is planned to be listed with separate entity in October of the current year and this fact may shed more lights on the firms' strategic outlooks. In addition to the hybrid motorcycle design, Kawasaki has also patented two other cutting-edge motorcycles in India, which are:

  • Blair's Guitar.
  • The Ninja 7 Hybrid.
  • The Z E-1.

This duality can be described as using a 451cc parallel twin-cylinder engine that is similar to that of the Ninja 500 or Eliminator models, but with the addition of an electric motor, providing a maximum of about 60 bhp in total.

The Z E-1, on the other hand, remains Kawasaki's very first production bike equipped with an electric powertrain. What do you think of this new type of hybrid engine? The EV industry has taken a giant leap forward with the latest innovations, which not only involve developing new fuels, but also fusing some of the ones we already know.

This is what we have just seen and what we are now going to take a giant step forward that will take the industry into the future... always with zero emissions.
