Micromax Co-Founder Rahul Sharma's Revolt Intellicorp has officially launched the RV400 electric motorcycle in India alongside the RV300. The company claims that it is India's first fully-electric AI-enabled motorcycle. Revolt Intellicorp had started bookings in July where interested people could book the electric bike by paying Rs. 1,000 as a token. What is interesting is that it is offered as a subscription service and you cannot purchase it outright. Revolt refers to this as a MaaS (Motorcycle as a Service) model, and prices start at Rs. 2,999 a month.
As we mentioned, the Revolt motorcycles don't have a full price but are offered as a subscription-based service. The Revolt RV300 is offered at a price of Rs. 2.999 per month. On the other hand, the RV400 has two pricing options, the base model starts at Rs. 3,499 per month, while the premium model is priced at Rs. 3,999. There is no need for down payment or lease plan and the bikes are available only through the aforementioned My Revolt Plan. The plan is for 37 months so you will end up spending 1.1 lakhs for the RV300, as for the RV400, you'll spend 1.29 lakhs for the base version and Rs. 1.47 lakhs for the premium version. Bookings will open from August 29.
The RV400 has a 72V, 3.24KWh lithium-ion battery that powers a 3KW electric motor to propel the motorcycle. In terms of suspension, it has upside-down (reverse telescopic) forks at the front and an adjustable monoshock at the back. The RV400 runs a dual-disc setup with a 240mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc. It also features a combination braking system (CBS) as well as a regenerative braking system (RBS).
