Raptee Energy, a Chennai-based electric-two wheeler manufacturer has announced that they have started production of their first electric motorcycle. The first batch of electric motorcycles will be used for testing before the manufacturer starts selling the motorcycles to the public. Testing the vehicles before starting public deliveries is quite common as this ensures that the vehicle does not face any issues once it is delivered to the consumers.

Raptee's new electric motorcycle has a claimed top speed of 135 kmph while the acceleration time of 0-60 kmph is rated for 3.5 seconds. The claimed range of the motorcycle is around 150 km on a single charge and 0-80 per cent charge takes 45 minutes. Raptee also says that up to 40 kilometres of riding range can be added with just 15 minutes of charge.

The prototype showcased by Raptee Energy previews the design of the upcoming electric motorcycle, which carries a naked roadster styling. Expect it to feature an all-LED lighting setup as well as a fully digital instrument cluster. Also, the electric motorcycle will be running alloy wheels. The prototype that was earlier teased also hints that the motorcycle will come featuring disc brakes on both front and rear wheels, while suspension duty will be done by telescopic front forks in the front and a monoshock at the rear.

The assembly line of Raptee Energy is now fully operational and the motorcycle will be launched within this quarter. The first batch of motorcycles will undergo testing and homologation processes, including ARAI certification and on-road safety checks. The company's CEO and Co-founder, Dinesh Arjun said, “At Raptee, for over 4 years, we have imagined and reimagined electric motorcycles to give consumers not just a replacement but an actual upgrade from traditional ICE alternatives. After years of hard work, we are thrilled to introduce our first production-ready motorcycle."
