Belgaum-based manufacturer ADMS has a diversified EV portfolio comprising electric scooters, motorcycles and electric tricycle
At the 3rd edition of Green Vehicle Expo held in Bengaluru, ADMS launched its new electric motorcycle named Boxer. While the name piracy is apparent, ADMS Boxer has borrowed heavily from Hero Splendor. Excluding the concealed mid-section that houses the battery, the rest of the bike is largely a xerox copy of Splendor.
Complete details about ADMS Boxer are not available at this point of time. It has a claimed range of 140 km, which will be available when the bike is used in Eco mode. It has a lithium-ion battery pack that sends power to a hub mounted motor. ADMS Boxer has three ride modes as well as a reverse mode. Such features are now offered as standard in most electric two-wheelers.
ADMS Boxer styling
Features that are almost the same as that of Splendor include the rectangular headlamp, front cowl, front and rear mudguard, fuel tank, seat design and grab rail. Unless one gets to have a closer look at this bike, it could be easily mistaken for a modified version of Hero Splendor.
Even the suspension setup of telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers closely resembles that of Splendor. However, being an electric bike, ADMS Boxer does get some unique features. For example, it has different handlebar design and positioning, chrome-tipped grips and unique switch cube.
While the cockpit section and twin pod instrument console have a familiar design, the fuel gauge has been replaced with a battery percentage indicator. The left pod has the speedometer and milometer, just like Splendor. Of course, the graphics inside the dials are different in comparison to that of Splendor.
Mid-section of the ADMS Boxer is fully faired and there doesn’t seem to be any opening for removing the battery pack. It is likely that this bike has a non-removable battery with the charging port accessible via the faux fuel tank. As complete info is not available, such details cannot be confirmed.
