    The first thing I liked is, no transmission loss. Its exactly like the Auto Expo concept, but closer to Chetak's design language.

    Those rectangular RVM's are looking odd though. The claimed acceleration and top end is only a bit lower than Ather 450 but not too much, but still they're in the same segment.

    PS: I hope everyone has made peace with the fact, that we're now mostly going to see news about electric launches and BS6 launches, and I honestly can't decide which is worse for us, the bikers.

    With all these new electric launches it makes sense for fuel bunks in the city to start putting a fast charger modules in their premises.

    Although the potential is limited for now, but Yes, at least one pump should initiate, with good compatibility with all the scooters.

    Since they take a noteable time to charge, I guess there should also be a nearby A/c Cafe, which should have Coffee, eatables, TV/ Music, etc. so that the time can be passed while vehicle charges, even for 10 minutes or so.

    In my opinion, no one will opt for full charge at the fuel pump, it will take an hour minimum for now.
    But they can gain a top up for vital kilometres... like to reach home or so.

    What we need is charging point at parking places. For eg at Malls, Restaurants, textile shops. So while we do the shopping the vehicle gets charged and we pay for charging, by not wasting money. Also increases customers for the shops.
