Featured Stories by Team Drivio | Feb 29, 2024

In terms of design, the Kabiras might look attractive but there’s a problem 

  • The Kabira 3000 Mark II looks very similar to the Kawasaki Ninja 300
  • The Kabira 4000 Mark II, on the other hand, looks similar to the Harley-Davidson Livewire
  • And both bikes have a price difference of Rs 2,000

In the burgeoning landscape of electric vehicles in India, electric scooters have gained traction, yet electric bikes have lagged behind. The subdued enthusiasm for electric bikes is largely attributed to the dearth of compelling options in the market. However, Kabira aims to revolutionise this space with its latest offerings: the Kabira KM3000 and the KM4000 Mark II. But do these models deliver on their promises? 

Let's delve into their specifications and features to ascertain whether they merit consideration for prospective buyers.

1. Kabira KM3000 Mark II
