Revolt Electric Bike models – RV300 & RV400

The Rahul Sharma-led Revolt Motors has developed the RV300 and RV400 using the frame and components of Chinese company Super Soco’s TS motorcycle. The electric bike variants look nearly the same, and the main difference is their motor and battery.

The Revolt RV300 has a 60-volt, 2.7 kWh Lithium-ion battery and a 1.5 kW hub motor. The rider can choose from three ride modes on this bike, namely Eco, Normal and Sports. The top speed is 25 km/h (Eco)/45 km/h (Normal)/65 km/h (Sports). The range is 180 km (Eco)/110 km (Normal)/80 km (Sports). Charging the battery takes 3 hours (0-75%)/4.2 hours (0-100%).

The Revolt RV400 uses a higher voltage, bigger capacity battery and a more powerful motor – a 72-volt 3.24 kWh Lithium-ion battery and a 3 kW mid-drive motor. The ride modes are the same as those of the Revolt RV300. This electric bike can achieve a maximum speed of 45 km/h (Eco)/65 km/h (Normal)/85 km/h (Sports). Its range is 150 km (Eco)/100 km (Normal)/80 km (Sports). The charging time is 3 hours (0-75%)/4.5 hours (0-100% km/h).
