The Kabira KM 5000 cruiser style e-Bike claims a shocking top speed of 188kmph & impressive range of 344km

Kabira mobility has revealed the details of its newest offering called the KM 5000, a cruiser style e-bike. What’s most intriguing about this flagship e-bike is that it is claiming a shocking top speed of 188kmph and an incredible range of 344km from a single charge. Here’s a closer look at this new e-bike and its key features.

In terms of design, the KM 5000 dons a whole new aesthetic when compared to its sportier siblings like the KM 3000 and KM 4000. It’s a cruiser/bobber/roadster, but Kabira says it’s an adventure tourer because it has a fat 190/55-17 rear tyre. Hey, at least the single sided swingarm looks cool.

The main talking point for this flagship bike is its patented mid-mounted motor and battery pack. The powertrain, which has been co-developed with Goa-based DeltaEV, claims to deliver a top speed of 188 kmph and the 11.6kW water-cooled, LFP battery pack claiming a range of 344km from a single charge. On paper, these numbers seem superior to the Ultraviolette F77. But given our experience with the KM 3000 and 4000, we’re a little skeptical about these tall claims. Another claim is charging - besides standard charging via the portable charger, it will also get an onboard charger for fast charging. The onboard charger claims to take the KM 5000 to 80 percent charge in two hours.

With regards to hardware, the brand is claiming the e-bike will feature upside down fork by Showa and a gas charged rear monoshock. Even the braking hardware on offer sounds impressive - twins discs at the front and a single disc at the rear. However, when we tested the KM 3000 and 4000, the brake caliper mounting bolts fell off within minutes of riding them. Hence, the skepticism grows.

For features you will get a 7-inch digital display with 4G connectivity and have useful tools like turn-by-turn navigation, music control, tyre pressure monitor, ride statistics and more. Kabira further stated that the e-bike will come with a wide range of customisation options for a personal touch. The KM 5000 will be available in three colours - Midnight Grey, Deep Khaki, and Aquamarine.

Kabira intends on launching the KM 5000 sometime between September and December this year. It plans on ricing it around Rs 3.15 lakh (Ex-showroom Goa) and commence deliveries in 2024. It has also said that it is looking to up its dealer network from the current 40 outlets to 80 by this year end. Summing up, we hope Kabira lives up to the claimed numbers in the real world, but we’ll reserve our final judgement once we get our hands on the electric bike. Apart from the Ultraviolette F77, there are no other rivals to the KM 5000 at the moment.
