Hop Oxo vs Revolt RV400: Image Comparison
The desi electric motorcycles face off against each other via images
While there have been a number of electric scooters in India, the electric motorcycle segment has seen very few players. Revolt Motors in particular enjoyed a monopoly for quite some time after it launched the RV400 back in 2019. So we compare the ‘OG’ RV400 to the recently launched Hop Oxo via a set of detailed images. Let’s see how that looks:
The Hop Oxo’s design language is rather conservative and it looks like the general crop of commuters on sale. It gets a ‘Yamaha FZ-FI Version 2.0-inspired’ headlight along with LED illumination all around.
Revolt has given the RV400 a sportier approach. It gets an urban streetfighter styling with sharp body panels and edgy ‘fuel tank’ extensions. It looks compact, clean and properly futuristic, with a slightly diamond-shaped LED headlight with LED DRLs. To accentuate its sporty appeal, the e-bike gets a raised pillion seat and a slightly committed seating position.
The Oxo uses a 5.2kW (peak) hub motor making a claimed 3kW of continuous power and 185Nm at the wheel. The top variant packs a bigger 6.3kW (peak) motor but makes the same continuous output of 3kW. The top variant, Oxo X, gets an extra ‘turbo’ mode, which helps it propel to a top speed of 95kmph, while the base variant is able to manage a top speed of 90kmph.
Powering the Revolt RV400 is a 3kW motor paired to a swappable 3.24kWh lithium-ion battery. The electric bike can reach a top speed of 85kmph.
The Oxo offers a claimed range of 150km in Eco mode, 100km in Power mode and 70km in Sport mode. The bike can be charged through any 16A power socket. The company also claims that it’ll take less than four hours to charge the bike from 0-80 percent, while 0-100 percent will take five hours.
Interestingly, the RV400 has nearly identical numbers to offer, with a claimed range of up to 150 km in eco mode, 100 km in normal mode and 80 km in sports mode. The battery takes about 4.5 hours to fully charge using a 15A socket. Although, you can swap the battery at a Revolt Swap Station to make life easier especially if you're in a hurry.
The Oxo gets a five-inch LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, cruise control, geofencing, anti-theft and ride stats. It also gets a customisable dynamic regenerative braking system, which recuperates otherwise lost power back to the battery pack.
The cockpit view from the RV400 reveals an LCD display that gives information about remaining battery charge, range, and ambient temperature. The Revolt can also be paired to a smartphone app via Bluetooth and comes with a 4G-enabled sim card, which communicates the bike’s telemetry with the company so that it can better tune the control software and send over-the-air updates to the bike. The app offers a whole range of features to riders which you can check out here.
Suspension & Brakes
The Hop Oxo’s frame is suspended on a telescopic fork and dual shocks, while braking is handled by single disc brakes at either end with a ‘combined braking system’ safety net.
The RV400, on the other hand, flaunts premium hardware including a 37mm USD fork and monoshock which give it a sportier and more comfortable ride. While they both get 240mm front disc brakes, the RV400 gets a 240mm rear one as well, against the Hop Oxo’s 220mm one.
The Hop Oxo rides on street friendly 18-/17-inch alloy wheels(front and back) and gets a solid 180mm of ground clearance.
Backing its sporty credentials, the RV400 gets 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends and gets an ADV-rivalling 215mm of ground clearance.
The Hop Oxo’s base variant has been priced at Rs 1,24,999, while the X variant retails at Rs 1,39,999 (ex-showroom, including FAME II and GST). The Revolt RV400, on the other hand, carries a price tag of Rs 1,32,499 (ex-showroom Delhi, including FAME II subsidy). So if you’re looking for a more sporty-looking electric bike, the RV400 could be something you might like. However, if you’re looking for something that’s light on the pocket, the Hop Oxo would make more sense. That said, we’ve not ridden the latter yet, so more about it after our first ride.
