Why The Future Of Two-wheelers Is Electric
With the ever tightening emission norms thanks to concerns of environmental pollution, and the ever increasing prices of petrol, it makes all the more sense to go electric. There are also several other reasons for going green, and here are some of the key ones:
Government Subsidies Make EVs More Affordable
The government has been pushing actively for electric two-wheelers with lucrative FAME 2 (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles), as well as state subsidies. This has resulted in the proliferation of several electric bike brands in India, offering quality, competent products at fairly affordable prices thanks to the subsidies. This has also reduced the price gap between electric and petrol-powered two-wheelers year after year.
Rapidly Growing Charging Ecosystems
One of the biggest stumbling blocks of adopting EVs is range anxiety. Several manufacturers are working actively on establishing fast charging or battery swapping ecosystems, which will go a long way in mitigating range anxiety.
Electric two-wheelers are high on refinement and have almost no noise. So if a hassle-free, calming riding experience is something you’re looking for, then going green makes a lot of sense.
Less Moving Parts, More Convenient To Maintain
Electric two-wheelers have inherently far less moving parts when compared to the petrol powered ones, so most of the general servicing is restricted to lubrication and/or changing the tyres or brake pads. The service intervals are also far more stretched out, ensuring a worry-free ownership experience.
Rich In Tech
Most of the electric bikes and scooters are loaded to the brim with useful, connected technology. Comparatively, some of the features are generally found only on much more expensive petrol-powered two-wheelers.

How To Maintain Your Electric Bike/scooter's Battery
Minimise Exposure To Extreme Environment
Do not park your electric two-wheeler under the hot sun or in extreme cold for extended durations. Even though the batteries have inbuilt protection, avoiding exposure to such extreme environments will go a long way in preserving the battery’s lifespan.
Keep an eye on your charging habits
Do not charge your battery to 100 percent regularly, or don’t even let it drain to below 20 percent. Doing so puts more stress on the battery’s electrodes, which in turn result in the shortening of its lifespan. Keep the charge between 50-85 percent so that the charge-discharge cycle count is preserved.
Use slow charging whenever possible
Even though batteries have fast-charging tech with adequate cooling mechanisms, using conventional charging systems puts far less load on the batteries as the amount of current sent is lesser. Plan out your timings, and use conventional (slow) charging as much as possible so that it can preserve the overall battery life.
Avoid long periods of non-use
Leaving your electric two-wheeler parked for several days will have a detrimental effect on the battery as it causes trickle discharge as there are several systems running in the background even when the electric bike/ scooter is switched off. Some electric 2-wheelers have a full shutdown mode which prevents deep discharge and should be used if you’re going to be leaving your electric bike/scooter parked for long periods of time.
Pros and Cons of Electric Bikes
As it turns out, people love us. Here is what some of our customers have to say.
Low running costs
Running on electricity is much cheaper than running on petrol.
No air pollution
EVs don’t generate any exhaust gases, making them great for the environment.
EVs make barely any noise when riding. Much quieter commutes compared to petrol vehicles.
Low maintenance costs
EVs have much fewer moving parts compared to petrol-powered vehicles, and require very little maintenance.
No/Low Road Tax
A lot of states in the country either have no road tax or heavily discounted road tax when registering EVs.
High purchase costs
EV 2-wheelers, especially the good ones, are still quite expensive to buy, even with central and state subsidies, compared to petrol-powered 2-wheelers.
Even the best EV scooters will give you a realistic, usable range of 120km on a single charge. Most petrol-powered scooters will go farther on a full tank of petrol.
Slow charging times
On average, EV scooters will take 5-6 hours to full-charge their batteries using a home charger.
Performance isn't great
Most, but not all, EV 2-wheelers will fall behind their petrol-powered counterparts when it comes to outright performance & top speeds.
Lack of charging infrastructure
Although some companies are installing fast charging networks, their availability is still severely limited.
Not too many choices
Unlike petrol-powered 2-wheelers, you have fewer options when choosing an electric 2-wheeler, for now at least.
