Roam Motors, an electric mobility provider has announced the Roam Air, a next-generation electric motorcycle, adapted and designed in detail for the African use-case and with special focus on affordability, functional design and performance.
The Roam Air electric motorcycle is tailored for commercial usage such as carrying passengers or cargo with safety at the forefront.
“The Roam Air is designed both for urban and rural environments, with years of research and months of development dedicated to building the optimal electric motorcycle for the region.” the company said on their website.
Based on a new updated frame, the motorcycle accommodates for a dual battery system allowing users to plug their battery into any outlet, and switch a battery out when it is empty to a new fully recharged one, lowering downtime and ensuring continuous driving.
The frame is also engineered to tackle all terrains while also accommodating for a storage compartment in the tank and increased carrying capacity on subframe. With extra features like connectivity, a modern user-interface and many more functions.
According to the company, when the battery powers the electric motorcycle, the cost of ownership can be reduced by up to 60% because the vehicle requires no maintenance and charging with electricity is much cheaper than gasoline.
The company also says charging costs for one battery is approximately 75 KES / 0.58 USD. Customers can make a reservation with zero deposit here with deliveries in Kenya expected later in the year.
