Rajan Sharma, a 15-year-old boy from Delhi has managed to make an e-bike from scraps of an old Royal Enfield. Rajan, a Class IX student studying at Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya in Subhash Nagar, spent around Rs 45,000 on the project.
A teenager in Delhi has reportedly managed to convert a scrap of Royal Enfield into an e-bike. The Class 9 student claimed that the vehicle would be able to run for 100 km on a single charge.

Rajan first started experimenting on e-cycles during the lockdown imposed in the city by the Delhi government during the Covid-19 epidemic.
He was able to build an e-cycle and drive it successfully. Unfortunately, he got injured after falling off the bike. After the incident, Rajan’s father Dashrath Sharma lowered his leg and refused to make him an e-bike again.
However, Rajan was unable to suppress his interest in e-bikes and lied to his father that the school had given a project about making e-bikes. Her father initially refused (due to financial problems) but later agreed to Rajan’s insistence.
Dasaratha then approached his friends and colleagues for money and helped his son in this project. Reportedly, Rajan was able to make an e-bike in just three months using scrap.
Rajan claimed that the speed of this e-bike is around 50 km/h, which can go up to 80 km/h on the highway.
