Electric two-wheeler OEMs are fast expanding their retail footprint as the shift to e-mobility takes place in India. Eleven days after it opened its first showroom in Bangalore, electric motorcycle company Revolt Motors has inaugurated its 14th retail store in India. This is its first store in Surat and the second in Gujarat.
Revolt Motors is looking for speedy sales in Gujarat, given that the state government is implementing its EV Policy which offers additional subsidy of up to Rs 20,000 which makes the RV 400 motorcycle more affordable and will accelerate the process of EV adoption.
The company has announced aggressive plans to expand its sales network and strengthen its retail presence further by entering 61 new cities in India including Kolkata, Chandigarh, Lucknow and NCR by early 2022. Bookings for the flagship RV400 are open across 70 cities through www.revoltmotors.com.
All the new stores will be set up by retail partners across the key cities. The new centres will not only act as sales points but also give customers an opportunity to experience the e-bike and go through the design, the charging process and how the installation of the charging points take place. Customers can also get a sense of their riding patterns after the test ride.
Commenting on the latest round of retail network expansion, Rahul Sharma, founder, Revolt Motors said, “We are delighted to open our first retail store in Surat and the second in the Gujarat region. Revolt Motors’ ride has been very rewarding and we are well positioned to achieve bigger milestones in the coming years. Expanding our current sales network at an aggressive pace comes on the heels of the overwhelming demand from our customers ever since we started rolling out our bikes and the encouraging response from the governments at the Centre and states. Our new sales network will help us cater to this strong order bank across the country and further help us in the EV revolution. At Revolt Intellicorp, we are determined to provide better and safer e-mobility solutions to our customers”.
Revolt Motors is currently operational in Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Hyderabad.
The RV400 comes with a 3KW (Mid Drive) motor, powered by a 72V, 3.24KWh Lithium-Ion battery that develops a top speed of 85kph. The MyRevolt App offers connectivity features such as bike locator/Geo fencing, customised sounds, complete bike diagnostics, battery status, historical data on rides and mileage, and also the option of locating the nearest Revolt Switch Station to swap the battery.
The RV400 features three riding modes – Eco, Normal and Sport – each suiting to the riding style and needs of the driver. Also, comes with Upside Down (USD) forks up-front and a fully-adjustable mono shock at the rear.
