Revolt motors’ first electric bike will be launched on 18th June, the company confirmed. The company, founded by Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma announced the AI enabled bike in April 2019. The teaser sketches of the bike gave out an idea of what was in store. The invite shared to Times Now is rather interesting and is much more than just an invite.
It’s more of a timeline that depicts the revolution that they’re planning to create with their launch. It’s interesting and Ambitious, to say the least. One such milestone silently takes a dig at Royal Enfield, whereas the other mentions a thieves rally – protesting drop in bike theft.
The bike has completed the homologation process and received approval from Automotive Research Association of India(ARAI) in April. The bike has also passed the gradient test with flying colors, going up a 10.2-degree incline. This definitely speaks about the torquey motor. The ARAI certified range of the bike is 156 km on a single charge. A slew of internal tests was carried out on the bike so as to strike a balance between performance and looks.
The battery was subjected to tests such as cycle life, performance, shock, nail penetration, water-proofing, and all-weather tests. All these internal tests helped the battery to pass the regulatory tests in just one go.
Unlike the Emflux One, this motorcycle is limited to 85kmph. Revolt motors’ bike has a USD front fork and monoshock at the rear. Disk brakes on both the ends mean ABS could be offered – as standard or as an option. The lithium ion batteries are also swappable. Revolt Motors imports the battery and the motor. But the battery management system is designed in house. Revolt Motors has an R&D center and a manufacturing facility in Manesar with an annual capacity of 1.2 lakh units.
