Indonesian company PT Wijaya Karya (Wika) has announced plans to produce 50,000 electric motorcycles this year, Jakarta Post reports. The Gesits (Garansindo Electric Scooter ITS), which will be built by PT Gesits Technologies Indo (GTI), will be launched next month.

According to Wika president director Tumiyana, production will be increased next year to around 100,000 to 150,000 units, and this will continuously increase in following years.

The fully-electric Gesits is equipped with a 5 kW electric motor and powered by a removable lithium-ion battery, which offers the Gesits an operational range of around 80 to 100 km per charge. Maximum speed is 100 km/h.

The report further indicates that the battery pack has a 1,980 Wh rating and full charging takes about 1.5 to three hours (original literature put the battery at 5,000 Wh and needing a three to four hour charge time). Features on the Gesits include daytime running lights, front telescopic/rear swing-arm monoshock suspension system and the monitoring of the battery system via an Android app.

In 2016, the Gesits passed a 1,200 km endurance test from Jakarta to Bali, with a number of revisions being carried out to the design last year. The scooter, which will be produced with 89% local content, will be manufactured at GTI’s assembly plant in Cileungsi, Bogor, West Java.
