Revolt Motors is going to offer ARAI-claimed 156 km riding range on its upcoming electric motorcycle. It will be launched first in Delhi NCR.
More update on the upcoming Revolt Electric motorcycle, is that it will get a 156 km riding range, as claimed by ARAI. Its battery pack has been tested for performance, life cycle, shock, all-weather and water proofing tests.
Based on the claimed range, we can expect nearly 130 kilometres to be offered in real-world conditions. The figures are pretty decent, taking into the fact that it is an electric motorcycle.
The bike will be launched in Delhi NCR first. The company will soon commence the process of setting up electric charging infrastructure across the capital region.
The Revolt motorcycle will get a 4.5 kW electric motor. The engine specifications are unknown as of now, but the power will be equivalent to a 125cc motorcycle. The company wants to make it a mass-market product.
The top speed achievable on this bike is 85 km/hr. Its Battery management system and Electronic Control Unit are developed in-house.
Interestingly, the motorcycle will be India’s first AI-enabled EV. It will use a 4G LTE sim card with advanced connectivity features. The sim card will be integrated with the instrument console.
Other features onboard will include full LED headlamps, a fully digital instrument console with Bluetooth integration, CBS, swappable lithium-ion batteries and a single long seat.
For suspension purposes, the E-motorcycle will use USD forks at the front and a monoshock absorber at the back. Braking will be taken care of by disc brakes at both the ends with CBS.
Reportedly, at first, Revolt Motors will localize their upcoming EV up to 75%. The electric motor and Lithium-ion batteries are imported. By the end of 2020, it will be fully localized.
The reports further state that the bike might carry a price tag of Rs 1.20 Lakhs. Government’s new FAME II scheme for electric vehicles in India, will further reduce the prices to Rs 95,000.
