    Default China’s Evoke Motorcycles plots India entry with electric bike



    According to Evoke Motorcycles, Project M1 seeks to fill the gap in the market for a competitively priced EV, which is pitched against 125cc to 150cc ICE-driven competitors.
    The Indian government’s aggressive drive for electric mobility in the country, more recently profiled in the FAME II Scheme, is also evincing interest from foreign electric vehicle manufacturers. China-headquartered Evoke Motorcycles is one of them and, from the looks of it, the company is plotting a big assault on the Indian electric two-wheeler market.

    The company’s India programme involves making India its vehicle design-centre and also a potential export and production hub. “This is something that’s on the cards,” says Nathan Siy, co-founder and CEO, Evoke Motorcycles, in an exclusive interaction with Autocar Professional.

    At present, the company sells two models in China, Europe and USA — the Urban S and the Urban Classic (Generation 1) — which have European certification and homologation. Later this year, Evoke will launch the 6061, a premium cruiser-style bike.

    One of the propositions the company brings through its electric two-wheelers is its proprietary patented fast-charging capabilities. In fact, Evoke claims that its bikes can be charged from zero to 80 percent in just 15 minutes. This could be a revolutionary breakthrough that can be a potential game-changer for increasing adoption of EVs globally.

    Interestingly, Nathan reveals that to ensure that Evoke Motorcycles' customers do not miss out on fast-charging capabilities, the company is also exploring setting up of Evoke Charging Stations in the domestic market. “There are some advanced talks going on," he discloses.

    The rear of the motorcycle being worked upon in the picture, is so CBR 250R-ish that it might just grow a 'wing'.
