Riding one step closer to clean and sustainable mobility, former Micromax CEO and Revolt Intellicorp founder, Rahul Sharma, on Wednesday launched RV 400, India’s first AI-enabled electric motorcyle.
This is the first offering by Gurugram-based electric two-wheeler startup Revolt Intellicorp.
The company says that RV 400 is crafted to appeal to new age motorists, and make urban commute convenient, clean and sustainable. Revolt’s RV 400 also attempts to make electric mobility look cool. Electric bikes generally do not make emission sounds but this one comes with speakers which can produce different kinds of bike exhaust sounds.
The Revolt RV 400 is fully connected and can be operated with a smartphone allowing users to remotely start the bike with a single swipe.
“The RV 400 is the first step towards providing sustainable, affordable mobility to every Indian home. RV 400 challenges every convention that riders have pertaining to the EV’s–power, styling and aesthetics, range, battery charging infrastructure, security, sound and service,” says Sharma.
The bike also pairs with a companion app, on which remote features like start/stop, real-time information and diagnostics, geo-fencing, OTA (over the air) update support, bike locator etc. can be accessed. The AI-enabled motorcycle comes with a range of 156 kms on a single charge and is tailor-made for new age motorists who want to stay connected 24X7, the company says.
Riders can swap their battery at Revolt mobile swap stations, which will be dynamic stations within the coverage grid of New Delhi. It’s portable Lithium ion-powered swappable batteries can be charged/swapped in less than four hours by plugging into any 15-ampere socket at any home or office. The app also enables users to find neighbouring swap stations with details of accessibility of charged batteries. The batteries can also be delivered at the user's location on demand.
"RV 400, is our first product from the Revolt Intellicorp stable comes with a promise to bring cool, smart mobility solutions that are high on performance and aesthetics. The product is not only a stunner but also challenges the general convention that all electric vehicles need to be silent or sound the same every day," says Sharma.
The company also said that the bike will have an embedded 4G LTE SIM for all internet-based features and the Revolt app adapts to the rider’s personal riding behaviour and can guide them for an enhanced riding experience.
"With our technological expertise, we are also betting big on developing a connected ecosystem which will be an integral part of all our products, and I can only assure you that the revolution has just begun,” adds Sharma.
Although the price of the bike hasn’t been revealed but it is expected to be close to ₹1 lakh. The Revolt RV 400, which comes in two colours–Rebel Red and Cosmic Black–will soon be available in markets beyond Delhi-NCR. It will be available for pre-booking on Amazon India and Revolt’s official website for Delhi customers June 25 onwards.
