Oben has announced the launch of its much anticipated electric motorcycle, Rorr. Dubbed as being India’s first electric performance motorcycle, Rorr is now open for bookings. Interested customers can log in their interest by pre-booking the scooters. To do this, customers need to visit Oben India’s official website and opt for the pre-booking option. Starting from 18th March, customers can start with the pre-booking that starts at INR 999. Oben aims to expand its markets to seven states in the country by Q2. This includes Delhi, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and more cities in Karnataka in Q2, 2022″.

What Is the Rorr All About?

From the initial impression, the radical design of the motorcycle is quite polarising. Being called a performance electric motorcycle, Rorr boasts of some exciting performance figures. Oben claims that the motorcycle can do a 0 to 40 kmph ruin in just 3 seconds and a top speed of 100 kmph. In terms of charging, riders can juice up from 0 to 100 per cent in just 2 hours. And with batteries at full capacity, Rorr will return an IDC rated 200 km of range. Powering the motorcycle is a 4.4 kWh lithium-ion battery matched to a 10 kW electric motor. The torque output reads as 62 Nm.

In terms of features, Rorr has a long list. This includes Predictive maintenance, Ride details, Battery status, Geo-fencing, Geo-tagging, Battery theft protection, Charging station locator, On-demand service, and Roadside Assistance. Two of its key highlighting features are, ‘Combined Braking System’ and ‘Driver Alert System’. With this, the rider gets visual and auditory cues, indicating when the vehicle is ON, Stationary, or requires Maintenance.

Price And Colours Options

Currently, the motorcycle is available in three colour shades. Priced at INR 99,999 (ex-showroom), Oben is being quite aggressive with the price tag. Furthermore, customers can also check their eligibility for Government exemptions, financing, and insurance options on the e-AMRIT portal of Niti-Aayog. The other electric motorcycle we have in the country that is selling in good numbers is the Revolt RV400, which is around 20k more costly.
