● Revolt Motors’ RV400 saw an unprecedented demand leading to the company closing of the bookings within two hours of opening it.
● Now, the company resumes bookings from July 15, 12 noon.
● The booking will be available in six Indian cities.
The growing public interest in electric bikes is evident from the massive rush for the bookings for the RV400 leading to Revolt Motors closing its booking window within two hours. However, with a replenishment arriving, Revolt Motors has decided to reopen bookings from July 15, 12 noon in six cities, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, and Pune.
Pricing – Subsidy Benefit enhanced
The immense interest shown by buyers has led the company to claim a sales figure of Rs 50 crores in the first round of bookings. People who have booked their vehicles in the first round will receive them in September 2021. The vehicle is eligible for the Fame II subsidy. With the Government enhancing the subsidy amount, the company has reduced the pricing by Rs 28,000.
The Power behind the RV400
The RV400 runs on a 3 KW motor that draws its power from a 72V, 3.24 kWh Li-ion battery. The electric bike claims to be capable of attaining maximum speeds of up to 85kmph. Besides, the vehicle is compatible with the MyRevolt connectivity app and its accompanying features like custom sounds, bike diagnostics, geofencing, ride data, battery status, etc.
The Driving Modes
Like all electric bikes, the RV400 comes with three riding modes, Eco, Normal, and Sport. The bike’s performances vary according to the different modes.
The USP of the RV400 is its upside-down front forks. It also features a fully adjustable mono-shock absorber at the rear.
Revolt Motors has stated that it will despatch these bikes to customers from the company's greenfield manufacturing plant situated at Manesar, Haryana.
RV400 plans to capture a significant chunk of the market as there is a vacuum in the electric bike segment in India. Many companies have announced the launch of e-scooters, but e-bikes are scarce. RV400 aims to bridge this gap.
