Yatri Project Zero, a cafe racer-styled e-motorcycle with impressive 230 km range

The Nepalese company, Yatri Motorcycles, wants to take mid-sized electric two-wheelers to a new level of performance and autonomy. The electric motorcycle manufacturer has finally revealed the production-ready Project Zero or P0 for short.

Designed in the style of cafe racer, P0 combines modern technology with classic design. This sleek cafe racer-styled electric machine bears quite an uncanny resemblance to the Husqvarna Vitpilen. It shares a similarly styled trellis frame and an even more similar tank and seat assembly.

A round LED headlight adorns the front end, while inverted forks and a mono-shock handle suspension duties at the front and rear. The Yatri P0’s integrated tail light is unique in that it not only beautifully communicates the rider’s intentions on the road but offers valuable features like charging status and auto-off indicators. The motorcycle can also emit the sound from the engine to create excitement for the driver.

The Yatri Project Zero will come with a 48 kW (64 hp) electric motor that offers 650 Nm of instant torque at the wheel with 97% efficiency. The 190 kg electric motorcycle is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 km/h (37 mph) in under 2.5 seconds. The maximum speed of P0 is limited to 140 km/h (87 mph) to ensure the safety and longevity of electric motors.

Powering the Yatri P0 is a high-tech Lithium-Nickel-Manganese battery pack holding 8 kWh of energy, which allows this electric vehicle to run 230 km (143 miles) on a single charge. It is built with state-of-the-art protection circuitry and algorithms to maximize battery health and efficiency. It has a 3.3 kW onboard charger, which enables the motorcycle to be fully recharged in two hours.

Project Zero stands out from the sea of two-wheelers with its market-leading vehicle software offering valuable data to make sure its users are always connected to what truly matters. It gets an impressive seven-inch full-color TFT screen replacing traditional tachometers with numerous sensor data, in-built 4G connectivity, and navigation, keyless start, and On-The-Air (OTA) update for the bike’s sophisticated software and electronic systems.

Yatri Motorcycles has announced the opening of pre-orders for the Yatri Project Zero starting on the 23rd of April this year. It has not yet communicated the price, international availability, and marketing date of its electric motorcycle.
