- The duo of Hop OXO electric motorcycles was officially launched in March
- Hop Motors said the new bikes will be available through offline and online retail channels
- The high-end OXO X variant includes a Turbo mode for added performance
Hop Electric has joined the ever-growing list of electric motorcycles in India with the introduction of the OXO and OXO X, with the latter being the more expensive model. The company said it will sell the two electric bikes both online and across 100 Hop Electric experience centres across the country.
The entry-level OXO is based on a 72V architecture including a 6,200W peak power motor to deliver 200Nm of torque. Pre-built riding modes like Eco, Power, and Sport are included in the standard OXO, while the OXO X also gets a Turbo mode, enabling a top speed of 90 kmph and 0-40 kmph acceleration in four seconds. Both models will be available in Red, Green and Blue shades.
Hop Electric says the OXO includes a 5-inch Advance Information Display which has ample protection from the elements, thanks to its IP67 rating. Furthermore, the OXO features a 3.75 kWh battery, capable of running for up to 150 km on a full charge. Hop also offers a portable smart charger, enabling riders to plug in the OXO at a 16 Amp power socket. In terms of charging speeds, this should allow the bike to charge up to 80% in just around four hours, according to Hop Electric.
“Given that our dealer partners have already conducted 5000 pre-launch registrations, we foresee tremendous hypergrowth in this category. We are continuously working to strengthen our product portfolio further,” Ketan Mehta, Founder and CEO of Hop Electric Mobility, said.
These new OXO bikes also support 4G connectivity and come with a companion app which provides usage-related statistics, geo fencing, speed control, and even an anti-theft system. The OXO and the OXO X join the company’s duo of e-scooters, namely the Hop LYF and the Hop LEO.
Hop OXO and OXO X price
The base variant of the newly unveiled electric motorcycle is listed with an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 1.25 lakhs whereas the OXO X will set you back by Rs 1.40 lakhs. This puts the new bikes in the same league as the Tork Kratos, which started reaching early customers only a couple of months ago.
