Revolt Motors will restart bookings for the RV300 and RV400 electric motorcycle by the end of this week. The company also plans on increasing its production capacity to reduce the waiting period.
In the first week of May 2021, Revolt Motors paused bookings for the RV300 and RV400 electric motorcycles due to an overwhelming demand for the bikes. Also, during the same period, the second wave of the pandemic paralysed most sales and production operations in the country.
However, now, Revolt Motors has announced that the company will start accepting bookings for the RV300 and RV400 bikes. Bookings will commence on June 18, 2021, at noon in six cities of India – Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, and Hyderabad. Additionally, the motorcycles that were scheduled to be delivered in the latter half of this year will now be delivered a bit earlier, for Revolt Motors is also focusing on increasing its production capacity, thereby reducing the waiting period.
The RV300 is the lower variant of the two and also the entry point in the Revolt brand. The electric motorcycle gets a 2.7kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which powers a 2bhp hub-mounted motor. The RV400 is the higher model, which gets a higher capacity battery and a more powerful motor than the RV300. A 3.24kWh lithium-ion battery powers a 4bhp mid-mounted motor.
The Revolt motorcycles compete against the Bajaj Chetak and Ather 450X electric scooters. Ather Energy recently announced a price cut for its 450 Plus and 450X scooter, owing to the revision of the FAME II subsidy policy. Revolt Motors has not announced any such benefits for its two electric motorcycles yet.
