Revolt RV300 has been launched along with the RV400, as a more affordable version. It gets a better riding range, but offers a lower top-speed.
Revolt Motors had unveiled India’s first electric motorcycle a month ago, the RV400. Today, along with that, the Revolt RV300 has also been launched as a more affordable variant to the RV400.
The RV300 is available for an EMI plan of Rs 2,999 for 37 months, roughly around Rs 1.11 Lakhs inclusive of all taxes and interest. The RV400 is priced at around Rs 1.26 Lakhs and comes with an EMI plan of Rs 3499 per month.
Revolt RV300 looks the same as the RV400, with the same bikini fairing and street-naked motorcycle design. It is available in two colour options – Smokey Grey and Neon Black.
It gets a 1.5 kW electric motor with a 60V/2.7kWh lithium-ion battery. The riding range offered is up to 180 kms. Here as well, you get three different riding modes with different top-speed limits:
- Eco – 25 km/hr – 180 kms range
- Normal – 45 km/hr – 110 kms range
- Sport – 60 km/hr – 80 kms range
The charging options are the same as the RV400, including portable charger, onboard charging slot and the Revolt switch charging stations. The batteries take 3 hours to be charged from 0-75%, and 4 hours to be charged fully.
The cycle parts are the same, with USD forks at the front and an adjustable monoshock at the back for suspension. Braking is handled by disc brakes at both the ends with CBS as standard fitment.
The features list is also the same, with full LED headlamps, LED taillight, a fully digital instrument console, the Revolt app for motorcycle information and also controlling and a single-piece seat.
The RV300 and RV400 come with two hand brakes since there is no clutch present onboard. You also get four types of different exhaust notes, which can be changed from the Revolt app.
The bookings are already underway and the deliveries of the RV400 and RV300 are set to commence in September. As of now, the bikes are only available in Delhi and Pune, later set to expand in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
