With the increasing number of motorcycle taxi companies launching in Kenya, Kibo Africa, a local mobility solutions company with a focus on the motorcycle segment has introduced its latest motorcycle dabbed the Kibo K250 to meet the growing demand.
The Kibo K250 motorcycle boasts of a 250 cc air cooled single cylinder engine, a trellis frame that is significantly strong as compared to the competition, 250kg load weight, a balance shaft that diminishes engine vibrations resulting in a smoother ride among other features.
“The Kibo K250 is the second model in our range and is intended to appeal to people and organizations who are looking for ‘the next level’ in comparison to K150. K250 provides more overall capability, power and fun. It’s a step up. Following K250, Kibois already working on an entry level model to become the third product in our line-up”, said Huib Van de Grijspaarde CEO, Kibo Africa Ltd.
Kibo Africa stepped into the Kenyan market in 2017 with the launch of its flagship brand the Kibo K150 which sold over 200 units in its first year. The company has since made an investment of over 11 Billion Kenyan Shillings and continues to invest more as the company continues to grow. The company plans to launch other new bike models including an electric bike in the next two years.
Kibo Africa also prides itself in talent investment where the company trains fresh university graduates on the motorcycle assembly process.
