With the Revolt RV400 launch, we expect the price of the bike to be around Rs. 1 lakh, on road. Revolt has promised an aggressive pricing saying its a ‘pleasant surprise’.
Revolt Motors have just announced that they scheduled the RV400 launch to be on the July 22, 2019. Bookings for this electric bike will commence from June 25 with a token amount of just Rs. 1,000. A customer can book the bike on Revolt’s official website or even on Amazon. The Revolt RV400 initially will only be available in Delhi, followed by other cities which includes NCR, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
The Revolt RV400 is more than what meets the eye. For starters, the Revolt RV400 comes with artificial intelligence, synthesised exhaust sounds and even a swappable battery. It looks mostly like a regular naked bike but a mean one at that. The LED DRLs and the sharp design is certainly a head turner.
The motorcycle comes with a fully-digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity and remote ignition start system, which by the way is a first for any two-wheeler in the country. The RV400 also has AI-based technology which learns your riding style and improves battery performance. The bike comes with an embedded 4G LTE SIM card which will give the motorcycle access to the internet and cloud-connected features as well.
As for range, because that is what matters on any electric vehicle, the RV400 will have a maximum range of 156 km, depending on your riding modes. There are three riding modes – Eco, City and Sport – each mode with decreasing riding range. As for charging, the motorcycle comes with an on-board charger which can be used on any conventional 15A power socket to recharge in less than 4 hours.
The battery pack is also removable with a portable charger and you can even swap recharged batteries at specific stations that would be accessible via a Revolt App. Speaking about the app, there’s a dedicated mobile app which can be used to perform a range of functions including satellite navigation, bike locator, real-time bike information and diagnostics, geofencing for security, doorstep battery delivery, etc.
The top speed of the bike is limited to 85 kph. That sounds a little too less but should be fine for city commutes. It also gets telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock unit at the back. Braking hardware consists of disc brakes at both ends with CBS as standard.
With the Revolt RV400 launch, we expect the price of the bike to be around Rs. 1 lakh, on road. Revolt has promised an aggressive pricing. The bike would be available in two color options – Rebel Red and Cosmic Black. Revolt hasn’t released any further technical specifications about the bike but we expect more information to arrive soon. Stay tuned to this space for more updates on the Revolt RV400.
