Oben has officially launched its highly awaited electric motorcycle, the Rorr, touted as India’s inaugural electric performance bike. Oben’s ambitious expansion plan targets seven states, including Delhi, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and additional cities in Karnataka. Now, let us take a look at the review of the electric motorcycle.
Design & Performance of the Rorr
At first glance, the Rorr’s avant-garde design sparks debate, creating a visually polarizing impact. Positioned as a performance electric motorcycle, the Rorr flaunts impressive performance metrics. Oben asserts a jaw-dropping 0 to 40 kmph acceleration in just 3 seconds and a remarkable top speed of 100 kmph. Charging is a breeze, with a rapid 0 to 100 percent charge achievable in a mere 2 hours. At full battery capacity, the Rorr promises an IDC-rated 200 km of range. Under the hood, a potent 4.4 kWh lithium-ion battery mates with a robust 10 kW electric motor, delivering a substantial 62 Nm torque output.
Features of Oben Rorr
The Rorr isn’t just about performance; it comes loaded with an array of features. Predictive maintenance, ride details, battery status, geo-fencing, geo-tagging, battery theft protection, charging station locator, on-demand service, and roadside assistance form an extensive feature list. Two standout features, the ‘Combined Braking System’ and ‘Driver Alert System,’ offer visual and auditory cues, enhancing rider awareness regarding the vehicle’s status and maintenance needs.
Oben adopts an aggressive pricing strategy, positioning the Rorr at INR 1,49,999 (ex-showroom). This competitive pricing places Oben in a favorable position, especially when compared to other electric motorcycles in the market. Prospective buyers can explore government exemptions, financing, and insurance options through the e-AMRIT portal of Niti-Aayog.
The Oben Rorr is a bold stride into the electric motorcycle arena, combining striking design with formidable performance and a host of features. Priced competitively, it beckons riders to embrace a future-forward biking experience. As Oben sets the stage for its nationwide expansion, the Rorr stands poised to leave an indelible mark on India’s electric two-wheeler landscape.
