Talk of electric two-wheelers in India and the first thing that comes to mind is a bunch of low-powered scooters with a limited range. However, in recent times, manufacturers have been rather bold in launching some powerful electric scooters and motorcycles in India. These scooters and motorcycles are aimed squarely at young buyers looking at something sporty, while also believing in saving the environment. We shortlist four electric bikes that give you the best convenience of EV mobility.

The scooter’s motor has a peak output of 5.4kW and 22Nm of torque. You can access the maximum amount of performance if you opt for the Pro subscription.
