The LML Star could be an electric take on what originally was a 150cc petrol-powered retro scooter. The LML ‘Hyperbike’ on the other hand…

LML Trademarks For Electric Bike Electric Scooter filed

One of the popular two-wheeler makers of yesteryear, LML, is coming back, albeit in an electric avatar. The company has recently applied for a trademark of the names ‘LML Star’, ‘LML Hyperbike’ and ‘LML’. The status says “Formalities Chk Pass” which means the application has been filed correctly.

The LML Star was originally a 149cc retro scooter sold in the late 90s up until 2017, so the upcoming scooter is likely to be an electric avatar of the OG Star. On the other hand, the LML Hyperbike could be the name for its upcoming high-speed electric bicycle. In fact, it had signed a letter of intent with German firm eRockit AG back in April, giving rise to speculations that it was making a comeback with its newfound partner. eRockit has a high-speed pedal-assisted electric bicycle called the eRockit One, and this EV is likely to be rebranded the ‘LML Hyperbike’ and sold in India.

The eRockit One is the world’s fastest pedal-powered EVs, its 16kW electric motor propelling the e-bike to a top speed of 89kmph and a 120km claimed range. While the model sold abroad only has pedal assist, the India-spec version is likely to get throttle control in order to comply with the regulations here.

On the other hand, the LML Star electric scooter could feature a retro design and rival the Bajaj Chetak in terms of equipment. The eRockit One is a properly premium product, retailing at EUR 12,900 (around Rs 10.26 lakh) in its home country, so LML will have to localise the product heavily and also rely on FAME II subsidies to keep the price affordable. Even then, it would still be more expensive than any other electric bicycle sold in India. LML will be using its Bawal plant (previously the Harley-Davidson India manufacturing plant) to make its upcoming EVs. The company will reportedly unveil its EVs at the end of this month, so stay tuned for more details.
