It’s World EV Day today and the electric two-wheelers are more relevant now than ever. Moreover, with the current in-flow of electric scooters and motorcycles, the market has a plethora of options from high-speed to low-speed and commercial vehicles as well. However, there are a handful of models that sit at the top of the chain in terms of pricing as well as the overall package. So, here are the three most expensive electric two-wheelers that you can buy today in India.
Ultraviolette F77 Recon
The Ultraviolette F77 Recon is currently the most expensive electric two-wheeler with an asking price of Rs. 4.55 lakh (ex-showroom). It’s not only higher on the price scale but also one of the most distinct-looking two-wheelers. From our time with it, there were innumerable instances where passers-by would turn their heads around and have a good look at it. Then, there’s the performance front where the F77 Recon comes with three ride modes, handles well and also gets a fairly plush suspension. It’s loaded with features too including fast charging, smartphone connectivity, reverse/parking mode and more. We’ve written a detailed report on the Ultraviolette F77 in this road test review.
The Tork Kratos R is the second model on this list and also the top-spec trim in Tork Motor’s lineup.
