Indian electric startup EVTRIC presents the Rise electric motorcycle

Electric motorcycles have established themselves in the mainstream, especially in Asia and Europe, where demand and convenience for these machines are highest. India, in particular, has become a melting pot of innovation, where new manufacturers are popping up left and right, all hoping to establish themselves as the next big revolution in e-mobility.

EVTRIC Motors, a Pune-based startup, is exactly that, and it hopes that with the Rise, its brand new electric motorcycle, it will attract young active riders to the brand. With a price tag of Rs 159,990 ($2,045), the Rise is on the premium side of the brand’s offerings, but it certainly has the goods to back it up. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

For starters, the Rise is powered by a 2,000W BLDC motor mated to a 70V, 40Ah lithium-ion battery. EVTRIC Motors claims the battery can recharge from zero to full in just four hours, via a standard electrical outlet. As for performance, the Rise is capable of a claimed top speed of 70 kilometers per hour, or around 44 miles per hour. Its autonomy, meanwhile, would be 110 kilometers, or about 69 miles on a single charge.

Among the features of Rise is a built-in 10 amp micro-charger equipped with smart charging technology. Similar to how your iPhone knows when it’s already fully charged even when it’s still plugged in, EVTRIC’s smart charger works the same way, allowing you to maximize battery life. In addition, said battery is removable, allowing you to recharge it off the bike, as well as the possibility of having several batteries for longer trips.

As for pricing and availability, as mentioned, for the equivalent of US$2,045 you get a decent, no-frills electric commuter. The bike offers a greener alternative to high-end 100-125cc commuter scooters, as well as a sleek package that’s a bit sporty. It is available in black or white paint schemes, with EVTRIC accepting pre-bookings amounting to Rs 5,000, or the sum of $64 USD, depending on current exchange rates.
