Created specifically for Africa and its people, the Kibo K150 is a motorbike you can depend on.
Manufactured in Kenya, it was born from a belief that we could create a bike that could genuinely handle the on-road as well as the off-road.
Inspired by the country’s great entrepreneurial spirit, and through high quality design, we believe the Kibo K150 can make a positive difference to people’s lives. So whether you ride for work or for leisure, you can rely on Kibo to Go Do the important things in your life.
‘I travel across Kenya, through the cities, mountains and rivers – testing every single bike for ride quality, safety and comfort’
Charles, Test Rider
Designed from the ground up. We are perfectionists. After 4 years testing and iterating to produce the perfect balance between strength and comfort, luxury and affordability, ruggedness and refined detail, we believe the K150 will mark the start of a new era in motorcycle design.
The exoskeleton frame is a unique cornerstone of the K150, designed to provide stability and maximise performance. Structurally protects the components inside and its open design allows for easy maintenance
If you’re a taxi rider the dual seat offers comfort and stability for you and your passengers. As a courier the seat and frame allows mulitple points for carrying cargo.
The K150 handles beautifully on and off-road. Whatever the terrain, it remains perfectly balanced and provides excellent feedback and ease of control.
The vertically-stacked twin headlights provide a distinct look with powerful illumination when riding at night and offer safe visibility during the day.
Dual sport tyres
Featuring a unique tread pattern and special rubber compound, the tyres provide a smooth ride and handling in the city along with great traction and durability for the off-road.
The analogue speedometer coupled with digital display gives riders a complete overview at a glance, allowing them to focus on the road ahead.
A progressive suspension provides a comfortable journey whether riding solo on the tarmac, or carrying a heavy load down clay roads in the rainy season.
In the harsh African landscape, reliability is key. The 150cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine is a reliable mix of power and efficiency. Maximum torque is released at low revs giving the bike great power on the off-roads, whilst a balance shaft reduces engine vibration, resulting in a smoother and quieter ride.
Its larger 21-inch front wheel allows the bike to roll over obstacles. High ground clearance and reinforced oil sump-guard also protects the underside from rocks and rough roads.
Safety is at the forefront of the K150’s design. A 266mm front disc and 220mm rear disc hydraulic brake system was specifically developed to ensure its high-load capability is backed by capable braking power.
Safety & Training
Rider training is an important part of our belief in improving road safety across the region. We offer training to help you be safe and get the most out of your machine, whether you’re a professional or riding for leisure.
Kibo helmets are developed according to ECE regulations ensuring the highest standards in safety, while still being highly-functional and beautifully styled.

‘As a Courier, I rely on my Kibo as much as my customers rely on me’
Miller, Courier based in Nairobi
At Kibo, we understand the importance of a reliable and efficient motorbike to get you through your day to day life.
We’re inspired by the people of Kenya’s great entrepreneurial spirit, and believe that through building a better kind of motorbike, we can support people to work, play and really upon each other, that little bit more.
You may be a courier riding in Nairobi, whose customers rely on your efficient service, or a doctor visiting vulnerable patients in remote communities. Or perhaps you just ride for fun with friends.
Whatever it is, at Kibo we aim to help you Go Do the things that are important in your life.
