Entrepreneur Rahul Sharma, co-founder of the mobile phone brand Micromax, has entered the electric two-wheeler industry. His new venture, Revolt Intellicorp Pvt Ltd, set up at an investment of about Rs 400-500 crore, aims at developing India’s first AI-enabled motorcycle.
With their headquartered in Gurugram (erstwhile Gurgaon) and a manufacturing facility in Manesar, Haryana, the firm has a production capacity of 1.2 lakh vehicles commissioned for phase one.
The company’s R&D is said to be working for nearly two years to develop the AI-enabled motorcycle and has released a sketch of their first product which promises to offer performance on a par with conventional ICE motorcycles. Recently, a test mule of this smart-motorcycle was spied near the manufacturing facility near the National Capital Region.
The new model is a fully electric, AI-enabled motorcycle with an embedded 4G LTE SIM. The e-bike will have a range of about 150 kilometres on a single charge and will feature a swappable lithium-ion battery pack. This smart-motorcycle claims to have a top speed of 85 km/h. For now, the battery and the electric motor will be imported but the battery management system and ECU are designed indigenously by the company.
The new Revolt e-motorcycle will be launched in June this year and will offer a host of innovative charging solutions in the National Capital Region.
