Kawasaki electric motorcycle patents surface

If there was one huge bike model that hasn’t been within the information lately for electrical bikes, it’s Kawasaki. Nicely, that has now modified with what look like leaked patent photos of a Kawasaki electrical bike which have surfaced on-line. These photos reveal fairly a number of attention-grabbing particulars concerning the upcoming e-bike.

Whereas the bike within the patent could appear like a daily bike, with its typical form and the presence of a gasoline tank, it’s really fairly removed from it. We imagine these diagrams are getting used to patent solely the powertrain and never your complete bike. Apparently, Kawasaki seems to be not solely utilizing an oil-cooler to chill the powertrain, but in addition a system that appears just like the ‘ram air’ it makes use of on petrol-powered choices. Nevertheless, the bike seen within the patent picture is clearly powered by an electrical motor and there additionally seems to be a big battery situated beneath the gasoline tank.

The oil-cooler is self-explanatory; it cools oil that’s working via the motor. Nevertheless, the patent does reveal among the routing and it seems that it is just the bottom-half of the motor that’s utilizing this cooling technique. The ram air system, in the meantime, is positioned close to the headlight and is just like the corporate’s different bikes that use this know-how. We imagine the bike will use all of the air it may well get and pipe it down in direction of both the battery or the electrical motor and enhance cooling on the upcoming bike.

The patent photos additionally reveal that the motor is utilizing a clutch, which may imply that the bike has gears. Now whereas the vast majority of electrical bikes don’t use handbook set-ups and use direct drives as a substitute, we may see Kawasaki take the previous strategy. Nevertheless, that is solely hypothesis as of now and we should anticipate extra info to unfold.
