April 23, 2021 is the day everyone, when Yatri Motorcycles will introduce “Project Zero” for public demo. Yatri Motorcycles introduced “Project Zero” in December 2019 and is now finally ready to be brought to the public eye this April.
Yatri Motorcycles is Nepal’s very own and the first electric motorcycle startup. Founded in 2017 AD by Ashim Pandey, they wanted the switch to an electric vehicle without compromising in its quality but to make it better. Their will was to create an electric vehicle, which if it ever did any smashing, it would be of the stereotype that world-class vehicles couldn’t possibly be built in Nepal. And what they weren’t willing to smash, is our mother nature, which is why Yatri Motorcycles engineered Project Zero to be environment-friendly.
So here are the specifications to this elegant, powerfully designed and cafe racer borrowing proportion that is also called P-0.
48 kW (64 hp)
120 Nm at shaft (650 Nm at wheel)
0-60 km/h in under 2.5s
3.3 kW onboard (2 hr full charge)
Chromoly Steel Trellis Frame
Front 43mm RCP adjustable USD forks
Rear RC adjustable nitrogen-charged monoshock
Front Brembo 2-piston 320mm disc
Rear Brembo 1-piston 240mm disc
Warner Borg E-braking
Metzeler Sportec M7RR
Aluminum rims and CNC machined hubs
Yatri Motorcycles aims to build charging stations for electric vehicles too, which as a matter of fact is lacking here in Nepal for now. Since the EVs are on their way, there will be the requirement to charge them on the go as well. For now, P-0 is expected to get fully charged within two hours. But with a DC charger, this fast-charging ride gets 80% charge in only 20 minutes and the battery life is claimed to be of 10 years. Its cost is yet to be disclosed.
You can place your order, and you should do it quick if you are interested. There will only be 50 of these motorcycles. A hopeful future in terms of automobiles that promises superior ride quality and incredible strength is on the way, so if you are interested, you can head into Yatri Motorcycles official website to place the order.
