Royal Enfield has joined the bandwagon of electric mobility. The company’s electric motorcycle project was said to be in the works for some time, but now the first photograph of the motorcycle has surfaced online. It is currently named Electrik01.
According to the report from Autocar India, Royal Enfield appears to be preparing to transition from its classic ICE-powered motorcycles to electrified powertrains. Here’s everything you need to know about Royal Enfield’s first electric motorcycle.
Royal Enfield’s first electric motorcycle
The leaked image suggests that the upcoming Royal Enfield Electrik01 will come in a neo-retro styling with a round headlight and a conventional fuel tank, which could be used for the battery pack. Besides, it seems to have a separate chassis that includes a portion above the fuel tank and another below the battery pack.
Moreover, Royal Enfield’s first electric motorcycle is said to have alloy wheels wrapped in tubeless tyres. The motorcycle is expected to feature a unique girder fork suspension setup.
Royal Enfield electric motorcycle: launch, price, and availability
Royal Enfield’s Electrik01 motorcycle is still in its concept stage. The company will make numerous revisions to the product based on the needs and requirements of customers, production limits, and financial viability. Once done, the motorcycle will have to go through the testing phase.
So Royal Enfield’s first electric motorcycle launch could take longer than expected. Thus it’s too early to have an idea about the price and availability of the Royal Enfield Electrik01.
