The electric bike from Revolt has an ARAI-certified range of 156km.
Revolt Intellicorp, an independent venture, will launch its electric motorcycle in India on June 18. While not much was revealed at the announcement of the bike in April this year, there have been two big leaks since.
The company had announced that the upcoming EV will be India’s first AI-enabled, LTE-connected motorcycle and it will run a 4G SIM to enable these functions. The Revolt’s motor and batteries will be imported, while the Battery Management System (BMS) and the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) are an in-house design.
This motorcycle has a top speed that is limited to 85kph and an ARAI-certified range of 156km. Furthermore, it will also have a battery swap system.
Revolt has had trouble keeping the motorcycle’s styling a secret as well, as it was spotted in production-ready form while on test. The spy shots revealed quite a bit, including the bike’s compact design, complex swingarm setup, bolt-on subframe, USD fork, monoshock and front disc brake. The upcoming bike will also have LED lighting all around.
In terms of competition, the Revolt will take on similarly-powered e-bikes like the Ather 450 and upcoming motorcycles like the Tork T6X and the affordable India-spec Evoke.
