Revolt has temporarily suspended accepting fresh bookings for its electric motorcycles – the RV400 and RV300 – owing to the overwhelming response the bikes have received from customers.
Revolt, an electric motorcycle manufacturer, has temporarily paused accepting new bookings for the RV400 and RV300, as both electric motorcycles have received an overwhelming response from customers. The company will now focus on delivering the confirmed orders first. Revolt has its presence in six cities of India – Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, and Hyderabad. The bookings in the aforementioned cities shall re-open once the current orders are met.
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. This translates into a range of 180km in Eco mode, 110km in Normal mode, and 80km in Sport mode. The RV300 takes 4.2 hours to fully charge from empty and 3 hours to 75 per cent from empty.
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 supplies power to a 4bhp mid-mounted motor. The motor transfers the power to the wheels via a belt drive. The RV400 takes 4.5 hours for a full charge from empty. The RV400 offers a range of 150kms in Eco mode, 100km in Normal mode, and 80km in Sports mode.
The cycle parts for both the motorcycles are the same. Upside-down forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear are common between the RV300 and RV400, along with an all-LED projector headlamp and an LED taillamp. Both the motorcycles get disc brake assembly on both ends. The RV300 tips the scale at 101kg, whereas the RV400, with its larger battery pack and motor, is heavier by 7kg.
The main rivals to the Revolt motorcycles are the Bajaj Chetak and the Ather 450X; however, bookings of the Bajaj Chetak have been suspended temporarily as well.
