  • Roam’s 10,000 square meter facility is the largest electric motorcycle assembly plant in East Africa, with an annual production capacity of 50,000 units that will be reached in a few years. 

‍During the inauguration, the President, accompanied by key government officials, explored the expansive facility, marvelling at the local production focus that the assembly line employed, the battery labs, and the company’s commitment to worker safety. ‍

The facility fulfils the shared vision to revolutionize urban mobility through electric motorcycles which offer a sustainable transportation solution for motorcycle taxis used in the boda boda and other logistics sectors.

“I am proud to inaugurate Roam’s electric motorcycle assembly plant today. This facility showcases Kenya’s potential as a leader in clean transportation solutions in Africa.
