Devot Electric Motorcycle
Jodhpur-based EV startup DEVOT Motors founded in 2019 has unveiled its production-ready electric bike prototype at the Auto Expo 2023 in Greater Noida. The bike, powered by a high-performance 9.5 KW motor, boasts lightning-fast acceleration and a maximum speed of 125 kmph. With a range of 200 kilometers on a single charge, the bike can be fully charged within 3 hours and is suitable for both daily commuting and long outings. The motorcycle will hit Indian roads by the middle of 2023. The prices of the electric bike are expected to be around Rs. 1.5- 2 Lakh.
Let me take you back to this 4-years old startup that has been working on this project since the foundation was laid down. The CEO of Devot motors has expanded its roots to an overseas base where he set up the R&D in the United Kingdom and the development center in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Devot Motors has conducted hard research on what the people in India might like in this bike. With comprehensive market research, identifying customer preferences and dislikes, developing the entire supplier base, prototyping, and endurance testing, the EV startup is ready to appeal to riders who don’t compromise comfort and performance.
Varun Deo Panwar Founder and CEO of Devot Motors said, “With its state-of-the-art technology and striking configuration, we truly believe that the DEVOT motorcycle has the ability to modernize the electric bike segment. The response we received to date is overwhelming and we can’t wait for the official launch. Moreover, I’d like to thank Auto Expo management for providing us with a platform to showcase our product portfolio and raise awareness about EV penetration.”
Look & Design
The petrol tank of the bike can be opened and users can use it as helmet storage or as an electric scooter boot space.
In terms of design, the bike has a clean retro aesthetic, with attractive paint options for the tank and side cover panels. The bike also comes with advanced features such as a TFT screen, a keyless system with anti-theft, and a type 2 charging point. The Lithium LFP battery provided by DEVOT Motors is less susceptible to issues caused by the depth of discharge, ensuring more reliable performance. In addition to its powerful performance, DEVOT Motors has crafted the bike with environmental sustainability in mind. With lower emissions and low energy consumption, the EV bike is a greener alternative to conventional petroleum-based motorbikes.
