The immense power of electric bike comes from a DC 6kW (8bhp) electric motor with a pack of lithium batteries which are imported.

On a single charge, this motorcycle can run up to 100 km and offer a top speed of 100kmph which is a feat in itself.

The bike has decent storage space, has fully digital touch dashboard, is anti-theft , enables mobile charging, mobile app support, Geo-fencing, quick charge and onboard navigation and GPS, all rolled into one. The bike is so smart that it picks up on your driving habits to create smoother controls for you.
