India's first AI enabled fully electric bike, the Revolt RV400 has been unveiled today. Set to launch within the next few months in our country, the Revolt RV400 comes with multiple features which are a segment first for an electric two-wheeler. The performance offered by Revolt in the RV400 is on par with what you get from a conventional 125cc motorcycle these days. When we talk about the equipment of the RV400, it comes with several premium features such as an all-digital instrument cluster, LED lighting set-up, inverted forks up-front along with front as well as rear disk brakes. Revolt is going to open the pre-booking of this bike from 25th of June at a token amount of Rs 1,000.  Initially, the Rv400 will be launched across 7 cities in India.

The Electric motor and batteries are imported while the Battery Management System and ECU have been developed in house by Revolt Intellicorp. Revolt's electric bike has an ARAI claimed a range of 156 km while the top speed is pegged at 85 kmph. The bike will be offered with battery swapping technology. For this, Revolt is going to set-up multiple charging stations within a particular city.

Revolt electric bike comes with an embedded 4G Sim card that ensures connectivity while on the go. You can also install a mobile application on your smartphone with the help of which you can keep a check on the health of your vehicle while also performing multiple other operations. With the help of this application, one can also remotely start the bike. In addition to this, this app will guide you to the nearest swap station. Scan the QR code at the station and you are ready to swap the battery. Not only this, but you can even order the battery at your home with the help of this app.

Not only this One of the most interesting features on the Revolt electric bike is that the rider can choose between multiple artificial sounds as per his or her choice to make the bike sound like a conventional IC engine motorcycle. The bike will be offered in two colour options of Red and Black.

For now, the Revolt electric bike does not have any direct competition. However, looking at the price point and features, the e-bike goes up against the likes of Ather 450 electric scooter. The competition will also come from the upcoming Tork T6X but that's a matter of time when it gets launched.

Revolt Intellicorp is founded by Rahul Sharma who also happens to be the Co-Founder of renowned smartphone brand Micromax.
