There is an activity in all sectors of the EV market in India. People seem to be lapping them all up, whether electric cars, scooters, or electric bikes. Initially, electric scooters started appearing on the roads and in the market. The wrong notion was that an electric vehicle meant a compromise in performance, dowdy looks, and modest speeds.

Apart from good top speeds and decent range, electric bikes have various features like smartphone connectivity, ABS, and multiple riding modes. So which electric bike should you buy?
