Electric motorbikes are now sold without batteries, which makes them cheaper. They now come with battery slots. Riders rent batteries from solar powered swapping stations. These removable and rechargeable batteries can be removed when they are low, placed in a charging cabinet at a swapping station and the rider will simply take a fully charged battery and put it in his bike and be on his way. The cost of renting a battery at a swapping station is not much and riders can pay with their phones. Swapping stations are the new petrol stations.

The only down sides are that more swapping stations need to be built and batteries are not interchangeable (different companies have different types of batteries).

Electric motorbikes are now being built in Kenya. They are being used by delivery services and as motorcycle taxis (boda boda).
