Revolt RV400 review

Revolt motorcycles’ lithium-ion batteries have been made keeping in mind the riding behavior and usage of the Indian riders. The batteries have been certified as waterproof, damage proof, shock proof and all-weather friendly according to ARAI standards. It’s the power which powers Revolt. Charge the RV400’s battery like a phone, switch them at our Revolt switch stations and when a dead battery gets you grounded.

Design
Revolt RV400

Revolt IntelliCorp has teamed up with Super Soco as its platform partner. The Revolt RV 400 electric bike bears resemblance to the Super Soco TS electric motorcycle. The bike gets a sleek LED headlamp up front and easy-to-reach wide handlebars for upright ergonomics. The side panels are completely covered and there’s a lid in place of the fuel tank. It houses the removable lithium-ion battery, which is also lockable. The rider’s footpegs can be interchanged in case the rider wants a mid or rear-set footpeg position. The rear is dominated by the long fender, which doubles up as a licence plate holder. The indicators are mounted on the fender as well.

Performance

The Revolt RV 400 draws power from a 72V 3.24kWh lithium-ion battery. It takes around 4.5 hours to charge completely using a 15A socket. If you’re in a hurry, the battery can be simply swapped at the Revolt Swap Station. This considerably reduces the downtime for recharging compared to conventional electric vehicles with non-removable batteries. The battery is linked to a 3kW motor, which generates 54Nm of torque. The bike comes with an ARAI-certified range of 156km per charge and a top speed limited to 85kmph. The Revolt RV 400 electric motorcycle features an aluminium subframe and swingarm. Suspension components comprise an inverted front fork and monoshock at the rear with screw-type preload adjustability. The electric bike comes to a halt using a 240mm disc on both ends with CBS as standard.

The Revolt RV 400 e-bike comes with a full-LCD instrument cluster and 4G connectivity. The bike can be paired to one’s smartphone via the Revolt app to check details like travel history, battery health, range, nearest swap station and the likes. Users can also set a geofencing radius via the app for added security. For optimum security, it comes with keyless ignition. As far as safety is concerned, a Combined Braking System (CBS) is offered as standard. Another unique feature is the artificial ‘engine note’ that comes via speakers in the motorcycle. Using the app, one can also change the tune to make the bike sound like different petrol-powered motorcycles while riding.
