Benefits of Electric Motorcycles
Electric motorcycles offer a number of benefits over traditional motorcycles, including:
- Lower operating costs: Electric motorcycles do not require gasoline, so they can save you money on fuel costs.
- Reduced emissions: Electric motorcycles produce zero emissions, making them a more environmentally friendly option.
- Quieter operation: Electric motorcycles are much quieter than traditional motorcycles, making them ideal for urban areas.
- Easier maintenance: Electric motorcycles are much simpler to maintain than traditional motorcycles, requiring less frequent oil changes and tune-ups.
The Future of Electric Mobility in Kenya
The Kenyan government has set ambitious targets for the adoption of electric vehicles. The Government of Kenya is planning for a 5% increase in its electric vehicle share by 2025; out of the total vehicles registered, 5% will be electric cars. The partnership between Mobius Motors, STIMA, and One Electric will help to achieve this goal.
The growth of the electric mobility market in Kenya will create new opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs.
