Roam Air

Swedish-Kenyan electric mobility company Roam Motors has launched its first electric motorcycle, the Roam Air, in Africa. The big beak, round headlight and small flyscreen make the Roam Air look like the Bajaj Boxer 150X, albeit with an electric heart. 

Roam Air Headlight

The electric bike’s frame houses two batteries, each with a capacity of 3.24kWh, which help give the bike a claimed range of 180 km. There are also four riding modes to choose from: Eco, Standard, Power and Sport.

The Roam Air can reach a top speed of 90kmph, it can do it in five seconds, and it has a 4-hour charge time (with a 3-pin 600W charger on a 240V outlet). 

Roam Air Instrument Cluster

Its batteries can be charged at one’s home and they can also be swapped at a, you guessed it, battery swapping station, ridding the rider of the pain of having to wait for four hours.    

Roam Air Storage Compartment

For added practicality, the Air has a USB port along with a storage compartment where, traditionally, the fuel tank would be. Weighing 135kg, it’s a fairly light motorcycle as well. The frame of the Roam Air is claimed to have been engineered to handle both urban and rural terrains of Africa and the big beak up front and minimalist bodywork give the bike a rugged look. 

Roam Air Underpinnings

Underpinnings on the Roam Air include a telescopic fork along with dual shock absorbers. On the features front, the electric motorcycle comes equipped with LED lighting along with an LCD instrument cluster that shows the riding mode you’re in, range left, battery percentage and speed, among other things. 

Roam Air

The USD 1,500 (approximately Rs 1.18 lakh) price tag is the icing on the cake. Somewhat crude design notwithstanding, the impressive range, healthy top speed and other practical bits come together to make the Roam Air a very sweet deal indeed.

That said, the EV will probably not be making its way to India. So, if you’re looking to get yourself an electric motorcycle, you can check out the Revolt RV400.
