The Revolt RV 400 electric motorcycle has started to roll out from the company’s plant in Manesar. The first RV 400 to come out of the production line was a Rebel Red-colour unit. Announcing the production commencement, Revolt Motors has confirmed that it will conduct the launch on 28 August.

Unveiled in June this year, the RV 400 will be available in two colour options – Rebel Red and Cosmic Black. The Rebel Red paint comes in a dual-tone finish of red and black. The pre-bookings for the vehicle are open on the company’s website and on Amazon India, Revolt Motors’ official online partner, for INR 1,000 (fully refundable). The motorcycle has received a positive response from customers in Delhi and Pune (where the bike will be first introduced). The RV 400 has registered over 2,500 bookings in just 2 weeks since the beginning of the process i.e. June 25.
The AI-enabled bike boasts an ARAI certified range of 156 km while the top speed is rated at 85 km/h. The motorcycle showcased at the unveiling event missed the safety net of ABS. We would most likely see the feature at the launch event. It is mandatory for electric two-wheelers with a maximum output of 11 kW and above to be equipped with the safety feature.
The feature list of the RV 400 includes full LED lighting, a rear monoshock suspension, inverted telescopic front forks, disc brake on both wheels and a digital display with Bluetooth connectivity.
Revolt Motors has also developed a smartphone app that works with the RV 400, and offers access to various functions of the motorcycle. The app features trip information, battery range, geofencing and battery-swapping stations locator, and allows selecting the exhaust note from the available presets and ordering a new battery pack. The electric bike will also feature a voice-command system. The company is likely to offer a Bluetooth-enabled helmet as part of the optional accessory that would work with the voice command tech.

The Revolt RV 400 is likely to arrive at sub-INR 1 lakh (on-road Delhi) price tag, which would put it in the same range as some of the 180-200 cc motorcycles with an internal combustion engine.
