Raptee Gears Up

Raptee Energy recently unveiled an impressive high-performance electric motorcycle targeting India’s mid-weight bike segment. The unnamed prototype can hit 135 kph (84 mph), accelerate 0-60 kph in 3.5 seconds, and travel 150 km (93 mi) on a charge. It rapid charges to 80% in 45 minutes.

Raptee plans to launch the affordable EV bike in April 2024, with a 100,000 annual unit factory underway. The bike’s triple-digit speeds, swift acceleration, long range, and aggressive pricing makes this a serious contender against gasoline-powered motorcycles for young Indian riders.

Raptee Energy Unveils High-Performance Electric Motorcycle in India

Raptee Energy, an emerging player in India’s fast-growing electric two-wheeler market, recently showcased a new electric motorcycle with impressive claimed performance specs at a Global Investors Meet in Chennai. While the bike does not yet have an official name, it aims to compete with popular 150cc-200cc gasoline motorcycles when it launches in April 2024.


Electric Motorcycle Offers Triple-Digit Speeds

The unnamed Raptee electric motorcycle prototype reveals some exciting performance capabilities that are on par with or exceed many gas-powered bikes in the Indian market.

According to Raptee Energy, their electric motorcycle can reach a top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). The motor can also rocket the bike from 0-60 km/h (37 mph) in just 3.5 seconds, which is quicker than some luxury cars.

With mid-weight gasoline motorcycles in India usually ranging from 150cc to 200cc, this electric two-wheeler seems poised to match the performance that riders expect in this class.

Impressive 150 Km Range Per Charge

In addition to its swift acceleration, Raptee claims its electric motorcycle will offer a maximum range of 150 km (93 miles) on a single full charge.

This should ease range anxiety for most urban commuters and allow for some recreational weekend riding without constantly searching for a charger. The range is achieved using a portable battery pack rather than bulky fixed units.

80% Charge Possible in Just 45 Minutes

The Raptee electric motorcycle will support fast charging via CCS2 charging stations. The company states that plugging in for just 45 minutes can replenish the battery up to 80%.

This charge rate combined with the long per-charge range gives the electric motorcycle true long-haul capabilities across India’s cities and highways.

Transparent Prototype Showcases Advanced Powertrain

Raptee Energy highlighted the advanced electric powertrain and battery technology inside its two-wheeler through a specially-designed transparent motorcycle prototype.

The see-through concept bike unveiled the positioning and integration of the key electric drive components. This allows potential customers and investors to literally get an inside look at the motorcycle’s impressive capabilities.

Major Factory Investment Positions Raptee for Scale

To manufacture its promising electric motorcycle for the mass market, Raptee Energy is constructing an expansive new factory facility in Chennai spanning four acres.

The company is investing 850 million rupees (around $10 million USD) into the production plant and accompanying R&D facilities. Raptee claims the factory has capacity for 100,000 electric motorcycles per year – making it one of the largest EV two-wheeler plants in India.

Launch Pegged for April 2024 at an Attractive Price

The official launch timeframe for Raptee Energy’s electric motorcycle is slated for April 2024 – barely over a year away.

The company clearly has plans to scale production rapidly after the bike’s unveiling. Reports indicate Raptee is targeting a competitive MSRP pricing aimed at attracting younger riders.

For reference, the Ultraviolette F77 electric motorcycle which offers similar performance specs starts at Rs 380,000 (~$4,500 USD) in the Indian market.


Between its 135 kph (84 mph) top speed, 150 km (93 mi) range, and 3 second 0-60 kph acceleration, the upcoming Raptee Energy electric motorcycle packs some seriously competitive specs to take on gas-powered bikes.

The company’s major factory investment also shows their commitment to manufacturing scale-up and meeting expected high demand upon the EV two-wheeler’s launch in April 2024.

Young motorcycle riders in India in particular are likely to flock to dealerships when the Raptee electric motorcycle hits the market next year at its targeted affordable pricing.
