Among electric two wheelers, electric scooters are quite common. Electric motorcycles less so.
And the reasons are not far to seek: Compared to scooters, electric motorcycles require a relatively higher amount of battery, making them heavier and far more costly.
Revolt Motors RV 400 is hence a fairly bold launch. It was announced by Revolt Motors in June. With a max speed of 85 Kph, range of over 150 Kms, battery charging time of 4 hours, and a relatively affordable (expected) price tag of Rs 1.1-1.2 lakhs, this looks like an e-bike worth watching out for.
Its battery capacity is reported to be 3.2 kWh with a motor of about 4.5 kW.
It’s difficult to resist a comparison of this e-bike with the Ather 450, which is supposed to be in the top league in e-scooters right now in India: Ather 450 has a similar max speed (about 80 kph, similar motor power, but its range is about 75 Kms.
