Jodhpur-based EV startup DEVOT Motors unveiled its electric bike at the 2023 Auto Expo in Greater Noida. The production-ready prototype model is powered by a high-performance 9.5 KW motor, delivers lightning-fast acceleration and a maximum speed of 120 kmph. With a range of 200 kilometres on a single charge, the bike gets fully charged within 3 hours and is ideal for both daily commuting and long outings.
The EV startup has established its R&D centre in the United Kingdom and Development centre in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. While conducting research in the UK, DEVOT Motors CEO brought the development of a revolutionary electric motorcycle with the 200 kilometres range to his hometown Jodhpur and formed a startup in India. DEVOT Motors showcased its electric motorcycle at Auto Expo 2023.
The brand has set a target of 70-90% localization, with the bike expected to hit Indian roads by the middle of 2023. After conducting comprehensive market research, identifying customer likes and dislikes, developing the entire supplier base, prototyping, endurance testing, the EV startup is all geared up to catch the attention of riders who don’t compromise on comfort and performance. Aesthetically, the bike has a very clean retro design, with great paint options for the tank and side cover panels.
On the product unveiling, Varun Deo Panwar, Founder & CEO, DEVOT Motors, said, “A fantastic electric motorcycle is the result of motorcycle enthusiast passion. As the electric bike market continues to expand, we designed our vehicle offering to meet untapped customer requirements. Our EV bike is the culmination of our team’s diligent research and vision to shape a two-wheeler that not only performs in extreme conditions but also embodies sustainability and excellence. With its state-of-the-art technology and striking configuration, we truly believe that it has the ability to modernise 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.”
For the rider’s convenience, the bike comes with advanced features such as TFT Screen, a Keyless system with antitheft 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. In addition to its powerful performance, DEVOT crafted the bike keeping environmental sustainability in mind. With lower emissions and low energy consumption, the EV bike is a greener alternative to conventional petroleum-based motorbikes.
DEVOT Motors, founded in 2019, intends to bring a line of affordable innovative environmentally friendly motorcycles to their Indian homeland.
