New Delhi: Indian electric mobility startup Revolt Intellicorp launched what it is calling 'India's first unlimited motorcycles' here on Tuesday. The motorcycles, namely Revolt RV 400 and RV 300, are available at no rental or lease plan offers.
The company claims that customers get full ownership from day 1 and without any down payment but instead a flat cost per month depending on the variant chosen by the customer. The RV 300 starts at ₹2,999 while the RV 400 is available at ₹3,999 a month.
Revolt also says that the RV400 comes with a host of introductory benefits such as unlimited battery warranty (8 years/ 1.5L km), free maintenance benefits (3 years, 30,000kms), product warranty (5 years, 75,000 km) and insurance (one-year, company-owned, five years third-party).
The RV400 is powered by a 3.24 kWh lithium-ion battery operating at 72V that generates 3W of power. It provides a maximum range of 150 km on a single charge and gives the bike a top speed of 85 km/hr.
The RV300 comes with a slightly smaller 2.7 KWh battery operating at 60V producing 1.5W.
While the battery can be charged via the port present on the bike, the battery module can also be removed from the bike and charged anywhere according to your convenience. And in case you run out of charge and do not have access to any of the above battery charging options, you can order a fully-charged battery through the MyRevolt app. Revolt claims to provide a delivery time of 90 minutes, although it may vary depending on traffic conditions.
Both bikes come with a combined braking system (CBS), with 240mm disc brakes on both front and rear wheels (RV300 has 180mm discs at the rear) along with an adjustable monoshock. The RV400 has a ground clearance of 215 mm and can be fully charged in 4.5 hours.
The bike is AI-enabled, thanks to the MyRevolt app. It lets you turn on the bike and display the battery status and historical data (past rides, routes number of kilometres driven). It also lets you geo-locate and geo-fence your bike. Since the bike is electric, it doesn't produce any sound other than an electric whine. To make you feel more at home, the bike has in-built speakers that emulate the sound of a real motor that can be chosen via the app according to your mood.
Other features of the bikes include a fully digital instrument cluster, 4G connectivity and an LED headlamp. There's also a connected helmet as part of the accessories package in partnership with Google, that allows you to start the bike using a voice command 'Revolt start'.
Deliveries of the RV400 will commence on September 2019 for the first batch in Delhi, bookings for which began on June 25, 2019.
For test rides, customers can visit any of the 4 Revolt Hubs in Delhi located at Preet Vihar, Safdarjung Enclave, Dwarka and Gujranwala Town.
The RV400 will be launched in Pune next month, followed by Bangalore, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Ahmedabad and Chennai in the next 4 months.
