Kibo Africa launches the 250R motorbike in the Kenyan market

Kibo Africa has launched the third generation of the Kibo 250R motorcycle in the Kenyan market with an aim of improving urban mobility standards.

The new bike has a 250cc engine and a fuel economy of up to 33km per litre. In addition to its operating cost-effectiveness, the Kibo 250R provides a unique blend of adventure and maneuverability, allowing riders to explore new horizons.  With its sleek design and innovative features, the motorcycle is poised to redefine urban mobility for Kenyan riders.

Kibo Africa CEO Huib van de Grijspaarde stated, “We recognise the challenges that individuals face, which push them to find new ways of relaxation and adventure. More Kenyans are turning to motorcycling as a means of transport and stress relief. With the introduction of the Kibo 250R, we hope to alleviate some of these burdens by offering an easy-to-maintain solution that does not sacrifice quality or adventure. The powerful engine offers both
performance and efficiency on the road. The trellis frame chassis allows for agile handling, making it an excellent choice for navigating city traffic. At the same time, its comfortable seat makes long-distance riding more enjoyable.”

Tobias Alando, Chief Operating Officer at the Kenya Association of Manufacturers, said, “We are proud of the initiative by Kibo who have localised the manufacture of at least 30 components used on their new product. This localisation helps create jobs at all levels of the value chain and supports skills transfer within the Kenyan market. Incentivizing local manufacturing will go a long way in making products manufactured in Kenya competitive in regional and global markets.”

The K250R has been designed with the modern rider in mind offering crisp digital display that is clear in
day and night conditions, bright LED lights that allow night riding, and USB ports that allow the rider to
keep their devices powered even when they go for long rides.
