At the launch of Revolt RV400, the manufacturer teased with an electric cafe racer. The upcoming model is likely to be launched later this year.
Revolt Motors has launched India’s first electric motorcycle series, the RV400 and RV300, priced at Rs 1.26 Lakhs and Rs 1.11 Lakhs, respectively. The latter came in as a surprise, as Revolt had only unveiled the RV400.
The Revolt Electric Cafe Racer gets a retro styling, just like an old-school cafe racer. You get a round headlamp, clip-on handlebars, a tall fuel tank, single-seat with a cafe-racer styled tail portion.
Cafe racers are usually old-school motorcycles which offer a dedicated riding position, because of their history as racing motorcycles. Another example of a cafe racer in India, is the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
The specifications of the Revolt electric cafe racer is likely to be the same as the RV400. The latter uses a 3kW electric motor with a 72V lithium-ion battery, which a riding range of up to 156 kms. The motor is capable of producing 3Kw worth of power and 170 Nm of torque.
The features will be the same, including a fully digital instrument console, LED headlamps and much more. The console will come with the same features like integrated e-sim, Bluetooth connection and the Smart-key system.
The suspension setup of the Cafe Racer will also be the same, inverted forks at the front and an adjustable monoshock at the back. The braking part will be handled by disc brakes at both the ends with CBS as standard.
The RV400 is priced at Rs 1.26 Lakhs and is available for a monthly EMI of Rs 3,499 for 36 months. We expect the cafe racer to demand a monthly EMI of around Rs 4,500, and its total price could go up to Rs 1.62 Lakhs.
Meanwhile, the pre-bookings for the bike commenced a month ago, but the bookings have commenced today. The deliveries are set to commence by the second week of September.
