Rissala Electric Motors Private Limited launched the Evolet brand of electric two-wheelers. While Evolet launched three electric scooters in India, as well as an electric quad, the new brand also unveiled a few upcoming electric products, one of which is a sharp-looking electric sportbike. The Evolet Hawk will be the brand's full-faired electric sportbike, and is likely to be launched by early 2020. Here's a close look at the Evolet Hawk, one of the more promising products from the Evolet brand, apart from an electric maxi-scooter as well, called the Evolet Raptor.
The Hawk has a sharp design, with the fairing giving it a sense of sportiness. The Hawk gets clip-on handlebars, sporty split seats, a full-digital instrument console, along with telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear suspension. Braking is handled by twin discs on the front wheel, and a single disc brake set-up on the rear wheel. The wheels are 17-inch at both ends, and will be shod with tubeless rubber. The Evolet Hawk claims a top speed of 80 kmph, with a claimed range of 150 km on a single charge. Charging time is rated at 5 hours. The Evolet Hawk will also likely get the dedicated Evolet mobile app, which will offer a long list of features, including service reminder, service appointment, over-the-air updates and geo-fencing.
The company hasn't divulged any other technical specifications of the Evolet Hawk electric motorcycle, and we expect the Hawk to be available with a lithium ion battery and an electric brushless DC motor.If Rissala Electric Motors manages to launch the Evolet Hawk within the next 3-4 months as announced, the Hawk could well be the first full-faired electric motorcycle to be launched in India, even ahead of the Emflux One that we have been longing to see and ride.
Unlike the Emflux One though, the Evolet Hawk will be a more affordable electric sportbike, and will likely be positioned to compete with internal combustion engine models like the Honda CBR250R, as well as the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. Expect pricing to be in the range of ₹ 1 - 1.25 lakh once the Evolet Hawk is launched in India.
