At present, due to the rising price of petrol and diesel, everyone’s worries are on their foreheads. Fuel prices are rising almost daily. In this case, the popular bike maker Royal Enfield has brought great good news for bike lovers.
By August 2020, Binod Dasari, CEO of Royal Enfield, had confirmed that the company was planning to enter the electric motorcycle segment, keeping pace with the times. Following the announcement, the company also confirmed in its annual report for 2020-21 that the electric range was being developed by the company.
However, not only Royal Enfield, but also leading two-wheeler manufacturers like TVS, Hero, Ather, and BMW are reportedly preparing to launch their electric bikes in the next few months. With that in mind and keeping customers in mind, Royal Enfield has also begun preparations and is keen to move ahead in the race to dominate new markets.
In this context, Siddharth Lal, Managing Director, Royal Enfield, stated that the line of production is being developed considering the range of an electric bike for the bike market in both the Indian and world markets.
The bikes will be based on the new electric platform:
It is known that Royal Enfield has accelerated this electrical process in keeping with environmental, social and governmental guidelines. The company has already built prototypes of electric bikes and production is expected to begin soon. For that reason, experts hope that the electric bikes built by Royal Enfield will be based on a new electric platform and will be equipped with many new features.
It is speculated that Royal Enfield may announce the start of its power generation in India by 2023. The company’s research and development division is already working to make the prototypes rendrable.
Also, according to a report in India Car News, the bike can use battery packs ranging from 8 kWh to 10 kWh and will be connected to an electric motor. According to the current trends in the electric two-wheeler market, the power and peak torque of the bike is expected to be around 40 bhp and 100Nm.
