Currently being offered on sale only across metros and Tier I cities in India, the new electric motorcycle will later go on sale through each of the company’s 100 dealerships across India.
Pure ETRYST 350
Pure ETRYST 300 motorcycle was initially slated for launch in August 2021. The situation prevalent in the country at that time caused delays. However, exactly one year later, this new electric motorcycle has been launched in India to stake its claim among some of the more established offerings in this segment.
Pure ETRYST 350 is an all-electric motorcycle. It commands a top speed of 85 km/h, offers a range of 140 kms on full charge and its 3.5 kWh battery, which is AIS 156 compliant, is capable of power and torque on par with premium ICE motorcycles on sale in India. The battery has also been developed in-house by Pure EV.
Designed to take on tough road conditions, the ETRYST 350 adapts well to terrain across the country. It is ideally suited for daily commutes and will compete well with other existing 150 cc premium ICE motorcycles currently on sale in India. Pure EV is offering the new ETRYST 350 with a 5 year/50,000 km warranty for its battery. It targets a younger generation of buyers in the country who not only seek a more economical and high performance mode of travel but also care for the environment.
Pure ETRYST 300 electric motorcycle is offered in a choice of 3 colours – Red, Black and Blue. It will find itself competing with the other popular electric motorcycles currently on sale in India. These include Revolt RV400 (Rs. 1.24 Lakh), Tork Kratos (Rs. 1.22 Lakh) and Oben Rorr (Rs. 1.02 Lakh) besides the Kabira Mobility KM 3000 (Rs. 1.26 Lakh).
