Hero MotoCorp has unveiled its first-ever electric motorcycle! It is called AE-47, and it looks really nice. We won’t probably see this motorcycle on the North American market due to its specifications. Anyway, the AE-47 utilizes a hub-mounted motor, with a decent range.
According to some sources, this electric motorcycle has a 4kW motor and a 3.5kWh Li-ion battery. Based on these facts, don’t expect to travel large distances or ride fast with this electric motorcycle. What we know is that this bike has 74.5 miles range in eco mode, and 53 miles range in power mode. Its top speed is 52 mph, albeit it will take you a bit longer to actually come to this number. This bike gets from 0 to 37 mph in 9 seconds!
What are some of the other features of this electric motorcycle? Some of them are:
- Keyless access
- Mobile charger
- Walk assistance
- Dedicated application for the bike
- Digital instrument cluster
While this motorcycle might just be fit for the city rides, it is questionable if it will become a hit. Well, maybe it will be an alternative to the numerous electric scooters that are so crowded in this market. Time will tell, that’s for sure.
