Evoke Introduces Another Electric Motorcycle

Evoke Introduces Another Electric Motorcycle We are living through an electric motorcycle revolution! The Electric Motorcycle Revolution marches on, friends! This time Evoke, an electric motorcycle manufacturer out of Beijing, is introducing a new cruiser model called the 6061. Their first model and entree into the electric motorbike world, the Urban Classic, is exactly what it sounds like: a naked roadster echoing the design characteristics of the Ducati Monster and the naked Suzuki SV650.

Ahead of new federal government proposals in India , Suzuki announced new electric bike development plans at its Gixxer SF 250 launch. While introducing the brand new Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 in Ahmedabad on June 11, 2019, Suzuki India also announced something else.

A couple of days ago, a new Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 was introduced in Ahmedabad, where the Indian division of the company also announced future plans for electric scooters. Koichiro Hirao, head of Suzuki India , confirmed at the presentation that the company has very large electrical plans for India .

It's now a race to see what cool electric bikes manufacturers in India can come up with.

While introducing the brand new Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 in Ahmedabad on June 11, 2019, Suzuki India also announced something else. Koichiro Hirao, Suzuki India head, confirmed to all assembled that the company has big electric plans coming very soon. You see, the country is about to be ground zero for small electric bike and scooter development. The Indian Ministry of Road and Transport proposal that new sub-150cc three- and two-wheeled vehicles must be electric by 2023 and 2025 is most definitely looming large in manufacturer's minds.

Big Four Join Forces To Work On Swappable Battery Technology The challenges of electric motorcycles could become a thing of the past. Until now, most efforts to develop new ways to promote electric motorcycles and push the technology forward have been isolated and individual ones. Some companies have already established partnerships to join forces, however, none has been quite as significant as the one announced last week. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Rumor Has It...

Suzuki Is Working On A New Electric Model For India . According to the Telegraph India , Honda was already in talks with the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers about the matter as the company unveiled its new Activa 125 scooter in India .

Maruti Suzuki will start testing 50 electric cars in India next month onwards. The cars could be the next generation Wagon R. The automaker will launch its first electric car in India in 2020.

Suzuki's plans for a range of two and/or three-wheeled electric vehicles are still in their infancy, so absolutely no specifics have yet been given. These plans could involve scooters, motorcycles, or both. With three-wheelers a much more vibrant market in India, perhaps Suzuki will consider a pivot in that direction on the heels of this new electric twist. There has been no official indication that this is the case—but it’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

“It is under development," Suzuki India VP Devashish Handa told the Indian Express. "The project is on. We are not too sure when we will introduce it in the Indian market, because what the government has declared so far is [only] its intention. It has to be converted to some regulation. We do not [yet] have firm regulations, and until such time [as] you have firm clarity on regulations in the Central Motor Rules, it becomes very difficult for any manufacturer to time [a launch]. Those things are still to be considered. But fundamental work is happening.”

Meanwhile, the all-new Gixxer SF 250 just debuted in India, where its chief competition is the KTM 250 Duke. The baby Gixxer retails for around ₹170,655, which works out to about $2500 USD. Could Suzuki come out with an even smaller electric sibling with that beloved Gixxer styling? Also, how will this affect the models that Suzuki offers outside of India, to the rest of the world? All of that remains to be seen at this point, but we’re definitely interested to see where this story goes in the future.
