Jaipur-based electric two-wheeler maker HOP has launched the new OXO electric motorcycle. The new HOP OXO electric motorcycle is available in two variants – OXO and OXO X – with prices starting from Rs. 1.25 lakh for the standard version, going up to Rs. 1.40 lakh for the X variant. All prices are ex-showroom before the FAME subsidies kick in.
The e-motorcycle can be purchased from about 100 showrooms spread across the country. The model can also be booked online. The OXO electric motorcycle joins the likes of the Revolt RV400 and Tork Kratos in the Indian electric motorcycle segment, while it also takes on the upcoming Oben Rorr that’s available at the same price point.
Ketan Mehta, CEO & Founder, HOP Electric Mobility said, “Electric is taking the Indian market by storm. This growth is propelled by consumers’ inclinations toward sustainable, convenient, and affordable mobility solutions. HOP OXO is the result of years of R&D, road testing, and the hard work of hundreds of HOP employees that have put their sweat and blood to launch the most progressive e-bike in the market. Given that our dealer partners have already conducted 5000 pre-launch registrations, we foresee tremendous hypergrowth in this category. We are continuously working to strengthen our product portfolio further.”
The HOP OXO works on a 72-volt architecture with the electric motor developing 6.2 kW (8.3 bhp) and 200 Nm of peak torque. The motor gets three riding modes – eco, power, and sport. The OXO X variant gets a top speed of 90 Kmph with an additional Turbo mode and accelerates from 0-40 Kmph in just 4 seconds. The electric motorcycle is powered by a 3.75 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with 811 NMC cells and smart BMS. The manufacturer promises a range of 150 km on a single charge with a 0-80 percent charging time of four hours with a 16 amp power socket.
With respect to features, the Hop OXO gets a 5-inch display with an IP67 rating. It also comes with multi-mode re-generative braking, 4G connectivity, and a partner mobile application that unlocks features like speed control, fencing, an anti-theft system, ride stats, and more. The Hop is offering a battery warranty of 3 years/50,000 km on the standard version, which goes up to 4 years/Unlimited Kilometres on the OXO X. The latter also gets the Hop Nuron-connected technology.
