Revolt electric bike is going to launch on 18th June 2019, will feature artificial exhaust sound
A major problem with electric bikes and scooters is that they don’t have exhaust sound. Another problem is obviously the limited range and long charging time. Revolt Intellicorp says they will provide artificial exhaust sound on their upcoming electric bike.
Electric bikes will not be as fun to ride as petrol powered bike because there is no sound of acceleration and when on power mode. Revolt motors have a solution for this. The Micromax funded company says that they will equip the bike with an artificial engine sound. Don’t worry, the bike will sound differently at all occation as it will be depended on the load on the motor as well as the speed of the bike.
Another thing is that the Revolt electric bike is just the Indian version of Super Soco TS electric bike which is on sale in the United Kingdom. We can predict the specifications of Revolt electric bike by looking at TS electric bike’s specs.
Powering the UK version is a Bosch electric motor with a rated power output of 1.2 kW. The maximum motor power is 2 kW and maximum torque is 120 Nm. The battery pack is made up of Li-ion cells from Samsung, LG, and Panasonic. Total battery energy is 1.56 kWh. However, the UK spec model has a top speed of 45 kmph whereas Indian version will have more powerful motor with a top speed of 85 kmph.
ARAI test range of the bike is 156 km. You can easily expect a real-time range of around 100-110 km per charge. Seat height stands at 770 mm while the ground clearance is 198 mm which is very good for Indian road conditions. That said, the bike comes equipped with USD forks up-front and monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are performed by disc brakes on both ends.
Revolt electric bike will be a connected vehicle with the help of 4G LTE technology. To use Artificial Intelligence and connected features you will have to use a 4G enabled SIM card. The company said that Batteries and Motor will be imported while rest other components are made in India. Battery swapping technology is also available on the Revolt electric bike.
