The Bluetooth-enabled helmet will most likely be an optional accessory. Apart from starting the vehicle, the helmet can also be used to answer incoming calls, manage messages and control the music via the voice command. The rider can also to listen to the selected, artificial exhaust notes that come with the vehicle.

We would hear more details about the motorcycle and the optional accessories at the launch, which is reportedly scheduled on 22 July, 2019. The upcoming Artificial Intelligence-enabled motorcycle will retail close to INR 1 lakh (on-road Delhi) prices. The Revolt RV 400 will be launched in Delhi before other major cities in the country. The Government of India plans to exempt electric vehicles from registration tax and thus we may see an even lower price tag on the upcoming RV 400.

The feature list of the RV 400 includes full LED lighting (blinkers, tail lamp and headlight), digital instrument console, Bluetooth connectivity via a smartphone app and disc brake on both wheels. Surprisingly, the motorcycle does not feature ABS/CBS tech.

In more updates, a report from April 2019 claimed that Revolt Intellicorp has three products in the pipeline. Regular followers would know that the Revolt RV 400 is based on the Super Soco TS naked roadster from China. Recently, a unit of the retro-style Super Soco TC was spotted in Noida, and we may see that motorcycle transform into the second product with Revolt Intellicorp branding.
