LML plans JV with Germany's eROCKIT for hyperbikes

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 18 Apr 2022

LML Electric signed a Letter of Intent to form a joint venture with eROCKIT, a Berlin-based hyperbike manufacturer. If both the entities agree on the JV, the Hyper Human Hybrids will be manufactured in LML’s facilities in India (the erstwhile Harley Davidson facility) and sold globally, including in India. Many other exciting global products are also planned, given eROCKIT's R&D and technical expertise in this category. 

LML intends to not only to industrialise this product based on German technology in India and localise it fully for the bike to be FAME-II compliant from day one. The Indian version of eROCKIT will be marketed by LML and will have an additional throttle assist too to meet the CMVR homologation criterion, besides GPRS-connected Telematics. 

eROCKIT is a hyper bike with top speed of more than 90 km/h supported by an advanced battery and electric direct drive motor. The innovative, clutch-free direct drive of the eROCKIT adapts to the intuitive pedal control.

Commenting on the new potential partnership, Dr Yogesh Bhatia, the CEO of LML said, "With this new jewel in LML’s crown, the technology strength, manufacturing prowess, and disruptive consumer experience that we stand committed to offering, will get a new dimension altogether, besides meeting the high level of expectations of our primary as well as secondary TG." 

It remains to be seen when the Indian riders actually get to experience the 'Made-in-India' eROCKIT.
