We identified the market gap when it comes to aspirational, comfortable, and stylish individual urban commutes. With the URBN e-bike launch, we have created the perfect solution for our users. There are easy EMI options for buyers. It is a perfect ride for local commutes and offers a 120-km range on full charge.’’

Motovolt URBN e-bike draws its power from a removable battery which can be easily charged. Its pedal sensor helps in smooth ride. Features like ignition key and handle lock also make it design-efficient. It comes with an option of integrating smart phones which makes life easier. URBN does not require a license or registration.
The company also plans to invest approximately Rs 200 crore by 2023 to launch new products and expand sales. It also plans to set up 250-plus retail points by the end of 2023 fiscal year.
