Revolt is an Indian electric motorcycle startup and its first product for India seems very promising on paper
- The electric motorcycle will get 4G LTE connectivity for over-the-air updates.
- It will be AI-enabled and have a claimed real-world range of 150km.
- Will feature swappable Li-ion batteries.
- The company claims that it will have a top speed of 85kmph.
Revolt, an electric motorcycle startup founded by Rahul Sharma, also the co-founder of Micromax, will launch its first AI-enabled all-electric motorcycle in India in June. As of now, the company is tight-lipped about the bike’s specifications and features, but did disclose a few features.
The upcoming electric motorcycle will have 4G LTE connectivity for OTA updates. It will also get AI-based features to optimise the battery performance, based on the riding style. It will feature combined braking technology as well. The company is also planning to launch dedicated charging grids which, in theory, sounds similar to the AtherGrid.
Revolt claims that the electric motorcycle’s top speed has been capped at 85kmph and it will have a claimed range of 150km. The company is well aware how range-conscious buyers will be, so they have decided to equip it with swappable lithium-ion batteries. Revolt has already been developing components like the ECU and battery management system in-house.
Revolt has already commenced the production of its first electric motorcycle at its Manesar facility. The company has invested around Rs 500 crore in this facility which is spread across 1 lakh sq.ft and is capable of churning out 1.2 lakh units in its first phase.
Revolt will launch the motorcycle in Delhi, followed by its launch in other cities soon. The company is also planning to launch physical as well as online experience centres across India.
