Suzuki's plans for electric mobility

What are Suzuki's plans for electric mobility? In this series of articles, we have collected the motorcycles and projects on which the main motorcycle manufacturers are working and their programs until 2030.

Suzuki's plans for electric mobility - It's official, the electric motorcycle revolution is coming, albeit in silence, and all the major motorcycle manufacturers have an electric mobility plan. The phenomenon has started for a while, but in 2022 the whole market is taking hold more decisively. At the moment sales are driven by scooters and motorcycles equivalent to the 125cc and 50cc thermal engines, but in the coming years also the sales of electric motorcycles will be increasing.
Convincing motorcyclists that zero-emission riding can offer the same thrills as current combustion engine bikes is no easy task. At the moment, two-wheeled vehicles with electric propulsion will represent around 4% of the European market in 2022, much less than in the automotive sector. However, this share has more than doubled compared to 2021, thanks to new models with performance similar to those with traditional propulsion, and to the eco-incentives present in some European countries.
This is a figure that will continue to grow as public perception - and laws - continue to move towards a greener future, with the next two years seeing some major motorcycle manufacturers enter the electric mobility market; let's see which ones.

The future electric motorcycles of the world's leading manufacturers: SUZUKI

Considering the size of the fourth largest Japanese manufacturer, it is perhaps no surprise to see Suzuki a bit behind Yamaha, Kawasaki and Honda. While the other houses have already made their first moves, we are still waiting for Suzuki to declare its electric ambitions, even if some rumors speak of a Suzuki Burgman EV scooter being tested. The company has recently amazed the world of track motorcycling by announcing the shock closure of its motorsport program, which includes the interruption of the MotoGP project and that of the Endurance world championship, justifying it with the choice to delegate the funds to the development of more sustainable transport methods.
