Prana:-

Prana is made by “Srivaru motors” a Coimbatore based startup founded by “Mohanraj Ramaswami”. It comes to you in three variants classic, grand, elite in those variants the picture of ‘classic’ was not so clear but whereas the rest of the two variants are similar in so many ways, let’s check out how:-

so as you can see this bike did awesome in specs and will be good enough for the daily commute and a fast bike as well.

Now, let’s see what SV motors has done in it’s ‘elite’ version

estimated price——–

So it’s, clear that SV motors have whipped out the delusion that ‘one can’t go for a long drive on electric bikes’ from this elite version.

But, having a fixed battery made this bike a bit unfavorable for the user, because you can’t use it in case of urgency and need to charge it again and again with yourself and you can’t switch the battery.

overall, this bike could be listed under “one of the finest electric bikes ” in the future but let’s weight for this bike to be launch finally and watch the user reviews.

Hero electric AE-47:-

It’s clear from the name itself that, this electric bike is produced by ‘Hero’ and it’s the first electric bike made by this company.

Now without wasting time let’s jump into its specifications:-   

Range160KMs/charge in eco mode | 85 KMs in power mode which means it will give you a range of 130-140KMs on average if you use it for the daily commute.

estimated price1-1.2 lakhs

A retro sporty look is given to this bike, the body is made up of plastic fiber.

This is a good bike with a great in this budget but specifications could be improved further, still their are so many areas to take care of, however the final image will be cleared after the launch.

Emote surge

“eMotion motors” presents “Emote surge” probably this would be the best electric bike specs you have ever seen so, without wasting time let’s have a look at its specs.

Range100KMs/charge but you can extent the rang by carrying battery along with you
Top speed120KMs/hours
Charging time4 hours/ 30-40 mins for fast charging / lithium ion battery
Electric meter unit consumption9 units
Launch cityTamil Nadu

other specifications• Unlike other electric bikes it’s India’s first GEARED electric bike with 4 gears including the reverse gear

best for This will be a great choice for regular usage and day to day propose, even if you are willing to go for a long drive or to another city just pick up the batteries and fly off to your destination.
estimated price 1-1.2 lakhs

Ain’t these specifications looks mind-blowing but here is a catch if you need a range of 300KMs then you need to buy 2 more battery along with the bike itself and it will take 9 units of your electric meter to charge all the three batteries completely.

All together this electric bike fill all the gaps in the market and will be the top priority of customer.
