Revolt claims its electric motorcycle has also passed the 10.2-degree gradient test, which is considered to be a crucial one. The battery has undergone tests including those for performance, cycle life, nail penetration, shock, all-weather and waterproofing. The bike will be launched across the country in June this year, with pricing expected to be in the region of Rs 1 lakh. More importantly, Revolt claims its bike will be India's first AI-enabled motorcycle and will also boast a high-level of connectivity. On the performance front, the bike will have an electronically limited top speed of 85kmph and will also offer different riding/power modes.
Speaking about the achievement, Rahul Sharma said, "When we started developing the product, we had to put together performance, form factor and aesthetics into a powerful package. We invested a lot of time testing it internally to make sure we have a winner before sending it to the ARAI. The speedy ARAI certification is a huge endorsement to our efforts over the last 2 years."
