Revolt India is all set to start accepting bookings of their RV300 and RV400 electric motorcycles from 15th July
RattanIndia-backed electric motorcycle makers, Revolt recently announced the dispatch of its latest lot of RV400 electric bikes. These bikes make their way to buyers across the country from the company’s greenfield manufacturing unit in Manesar, Haryana. Now, the company has announced that they are ready to reopen bookings of their electric motorcycle.
RV400 is the company’s flagship model and it has been met with much demand. The last time bookings were open, the company had to close bookings in a few hours of opening. Revolt Motors had opened its online portal on 18th June and sold RV400 units to the tune of Rs 50 crores within 120 minutes.
These orders were from buyers in the 6 cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad. Deliveries are being made in the shortest possible time. Now the company is getting ready to reopen bookings on 15th July 2021. It is not clear for how long the bookings will remain open.
The recent revisions in the FAME II policy has seen reduced costs and increased demand for electric bikes in the country. The RV400 electric bike is priced at Rs 1.06 lakh. However, buyers in Gujarat can avail of benefits upto Rs 20,000 in the state while buyers in Delhi get a benefit of Rs 16,400 on e-bikes.
Thanks to these benefits both under FAME II policy and Gujarat EV policy, the RV400 costs Rs 87,000 instead of Rs 1.06 lakh in Ahmedabad. Delhi pricing is at Rs 90,799 due to added subsidies offered by the Delhi Government.
