In a first for the Indian market, an electric motorcycle will be launched by Revolt Intellicorp. Founder Rahul Sharma had earlier achieved a similar feat with Micromax and now yet another interesting story is unfolding with the launch of Revolt electric motorcycle.
The electric bike has huge potential, as quite a few people surveyed have indicated their willingness to switch to electric motorcycles. Revolt has the first-mover advantage, which will work in its favour.
Spy shots and teasers of the Revolt Motorcycle confirms that it looks very similar to the Super Soco electric motorcycle. It is a Chinese motorcycle that is made in China and sold in many countries around the world. It remains to be seen if the Revolt motorcycle for India is via a partnership with Super Soco. Is could be a Chinese import, or it can be produced in India under license.
The spy shots above were clicked while the Super Soco Chinese electric bike was parked inside a housing society in Noida. If the Revolt electric motorcycle is nothing but a rebadge exercise, than the leaked Super Soco images give a detailed idea about the new electric motorcycle which will launch in India today.
Just like the Super Soco, Revolt electric motorcycle features a compact, conventional styling and comes with USD forks and monoshock suspension at the rear. Other key features include upright handlebar, snazzy tank design, prominent shrouds and a one-piece seat. Electric motor is placed at the centre, which improves balance and handling owing to lower centre of gravity. A fun feature is choosing your own exhaust note, which is delivered via an inbuilt sound system.
Revolt is marketing their new e-bike not only as the first electric motorcycle of India, but also as the first AI-enabled motorcycle. The embedded AI system connects seamlessly to a mobile app via a 4G SIM. It allows users to access a range of features and controls on the bike. AI system also regulates battery usage to derive the best mileage.
Revolt electric motorcycle is ARAI certified to deliver a mileage of 156 km (on full battery) and top speed of 85 kmph. Starting price of Revolt electric motorcycle is expected to be in the range of Rs 1.2 to Rs 1.5 lakh. It will take on rivals such as Ather 450 and upcoming Tork T6X.
