Evtric Motors, an Indian EV startup based in Pune, has introduced its first electric motorcycle in the country. The Evtric Rise will be made in India and is advertised as a premium electric motorcycle. This motorcycle joins the company’s Axis, Ride, and Mighty electric scooters in its lineup. Let’s have a look at what Evtric Rise has to offer.
Evtric Rise: Design, Features
Most electric two-wheelers imported from China look like cheap Kawasaki Ninja 300 knockoffs and are rebranded by Indian companies. The Evtric Rise, however, looks like a Benelli TNT 25 knockoff. Its headlights, tank, and tank cowls are identical to that of the Benelli TNT 25 or the Benelli TNT 300’s design. There’s even a fake trellis frame on the sides, while in reality, it gets a single cradle frame that can be clearly seen in the image. The motorcycle gets alloy wheels and a disc brake setup at the front and rear. The front suspension gets conventional telescopic units.
The Evtric Rise is powered by a 2kW BLDC motor, which can power the motorcycle to reach a maximum top speed of 70kmph. It packs in a 70V/40Ah lithium-ion battery, which promises to deliver up to 110km of driving range on a single charge. The EV comes with a 10A charger that can supposedly charge it fully in about four hours. The charger gets an auto-cut feature for enhanced charging safety.
