Revolt RV400 – India’s First All-Electric Motorcycle All Set To Make Its Debut

One of the most eagerly awaited all-electric motorcycle, the Revolt RV400 has been finally unveiled. It is gearing up for a launch next month as people wait to take it for a ride. It has an ARAI certified range of 156km per charge and can be plugged directly to a 15-ampere socket for a full charge. Charging the vehicle would take up to four hours.  

Thoughtfully, Revolt comes with a swappable battery that can be booked through the company’s mobile application. Customers can also find the nearest battery swapping station via the application. Swapping the battery (power source) of the bike needs a claimed time of 60 seconds. The bike can attain a top speed of 85kmph.

The Revolt RV400 also happens to be India’s first AI (artificial intelligence) enabled motorcycle and comprises features like geofencing, anti-theft and geotagging. The application also lets the user know about the statistics of the bike such as available range, total riding hours and real-time diagnostics.

The electric machine also has an artificial engine sound that can be switched on/off by the user. The application gives you the preview of the engine sound as well to help you decide whether to switch it on or not. As of now, the bike will be available in two colours for the customers – Red and Black.

It is considered as the most feature-packed electric two-wheeler in India. It also has the artificial exhaust sound system. It allows the rider to either choose from four default exhaust note options or customise one as per the liking. Some of these features were restricted to premium electric cars until now.

The prices of the motorcycle will be revealed in the coming days, which might touch the Rs 1 lakh mark, ex-showroom. The competitors for the Revolt RV400 are 150cc petrol-powered motorcycles like the Yamaha FZ-S, Suzuki Gixerr 155.

The RV400 gets its parts just like any other motorcycle, upside down forks in the front and a monoshock at the back. The bike also wears an all-digital instrument cluster. It also comes with disc brakes on both ends. However, ABS fans might be disappointed as that is missing in the bike.

Some of the features of Revolt, like the LED headlamps and Al-based technology which enhances the battery performance as per the riding style, could give it an edge over its rivals. The Bluetooth connectivity enables users to remotely start their motorcycles via their smartphone. It also supports voice commands to start the motor.
