Royal En­field to Ex­plore the Elec­tric Op­tion

Bike India - - IGNITION -

ROYAL EN­FIELD HAVE DE­CIDED TO VEN­TURE INTO THE DO­MAIN OF elec­tric-pow­ered mo­tor­cy­cles. The iconic brand is de­vel­op­ing a green ma­chine with a clean, emis­sion-free fu­ture in mind. Ac­cord­ing to news re­ports, the elec­tric mo­tor­cy­cle is be­ing de­vel­oped by Eicher Mo­tors, headed by Sid­dhartha Lal.

With the In­dian gov­ern­ment pro­mot­ing greener ve­hi­cles, and with other two-wheeler mak­ers like Hero Mo­to­Corp and Ba­jaj Auto also in­vest­ing in elec­tric mo­tor­cy­cles, Royal En­field feel the need to stay up to date, too.

Hero have in­vested in a start-up, called Ather En­ergy, who re­cently in­tro­duced their elec­tric scoot­ers, and Ba­jaj have a sub-brand, called Ur­ban­ite. Other brands such as Honda and TVS are also con­sid­er­ing a foray into the elec­tric mo­tor­cy­cle arena.
