Increasing inflation and increasing fuel prices are becoming an issue for daily commuters. People are shifting to smaller capacity vehicles to save fuel but fact is that a 70cc motorcycle can not do beyond 45 to 50 Kmpl. People are looking for more favorable options and an Electric Vehicle seems to be a nice choice.
Following this trend many EV manufacturers are now active in Pakistani motorcycle industry. Jolta Electric, Road King Motorcycle and Vlektra are a few names. Now Ravi Motorcycle also joins them with their EV variant of 70cc motorcycle.
As odd as it seems, the placement of electric motor and batteries feels odd in a gasoline motorcycle. Normal 70cc frame seems to be out of proportion and many users have quality concerns. The quality of batteries and motors have improved a lot but many still need to improve.
Also the increasing prices of EV bikes is a big issue, followed by quality issues and lack of proper after sales services the still have a long way to go.
