Back in late 2019, Nepalese electric bike startup, Yatri Motorcycles first revealed its Project Zero concept, a contemporary and fully electric take on a cafe racer. Despite a global pandemic temporarily throwing a wrench in the works, the Kathmandu-based company has now revealed the final production version of its Project Zero ebike, along with announcing its preorder availability.
The bike is built around a Chromoly steel trellis frame paired with a 43mm inverted front-end and an adjustable nitrogen-charged mono-shock and housing an 8kWh Lithium-Nickel-Manganese battery pack that offers a 143-mile range and can receive a full recharge in just two hours via its onboard 3.3kW charger. Weighing just under 420lbs, the Project Zero is kicked along by an electric motor putting down a 64hp and a whopping 479ft-lbs of torque, allowing for sub-2.5-second 0-37mph times and an 87mph top speed. Sporting a sleek single-piece tail and “tank” cover, the electric cafe racer also boasts Brembo brakes paired with Warner Borg E-braking, aluminum rims laced to billet hubs, a massive TFT display, carbon fiber fenders and battery cover, remote keyless ignition, built-in 4G connectivity for navigation and OTA updates, integrated rear indicators, and bar-end LED front signals. The Yatri Motorcycles Project Zero will be available for preorder starting April 24.
