Speaking about the performance, Dravya Dholakia, Dholakia Ventures said, “Oben RORR has an excellent design with a great riding experience and makes a strong value proposition for the customer in its segment. We believe that after ‘Make in India’, it’s now time for ‘Design in India for the World’ and Oben Electric is at the forefront."

The Oben Rorr electric motorcycle was launched earlier this year and we brought you a first ride review of the upcoming offering. The 150 cc equivalent motorcycle was promising albeit with its share of teething issues. The company says it has a healthy order book from domestic and export markets alike for the Rorr.

Oben says its ready to take the next step with a finished product, a loaded order book and the e-motorcycle ready for deliveries. The company plans to raise another $50 million through its upcoming Series A round. Oben said the money will be utilised for further growth but did not get into the specifics of allocation. The start-up previously raised $2 million in a seed round in December 2021. This saw the seed funding coming from We Founder Circle (WFC), GVK Family Office, MD of Fortune 50 PE Fund & CXOs of MNCs.
