Even though we have a fair share of electric 2 wheelers, there’s always room for more. Right now, Ola Electric, Hero Electric, Okinawa, Ampere and Ather Energy are top brands when it comes to electric two wheelers. Hero MotoCorp, TVS, Bajaj, and others are pushing the sales envelope too. Here are some of the most anticipated upcoming electric two wheelers that might be worth waiting for. Launch timelines for most of these two wheelers are not yet known, though.
Recently, we witnessed the launch of Ultraviolette F77. This is a modern fusion of a faired and a street motorcycle. In that sense, it gets a fairing that covers its frame, battery and motor. However, the front is designed to mimic a street fighter with beefy USD fork covers. It will get a motor with 35 bhp of peak power capable of 147 km/h top speed and will sip juice from a 4.2 kWh battery. Price starts from Rs 3.8 lakh and goes all the way to Rs 5.5 lakh.
