Electric bikes are the future of two-wheeler bikes in the country. The soaring fuel prices and the decreasing e-bike prices are pushing things in favor of electric energy. In the long run, the running cost of electric bikes cannot be matched even by the highest mileage bike running on fossil fuel. 

The Auto Expos offer a sneak peek on what to expect from automakers in the future. The 2020 Expo indicated that the future is all-electric. The race to develop the best e bike 2020, which offers adequate speed, long-range and quick charging time, continues. The market has already seen some decent bikes in the form of Ather 450, Revolt RV400 among others. 

However, the choices in e-bikes are still limited. To give you more options, bikemakers are introducing new bikes this year. Take a look:

Okinawa Oki100

Expected Launch: October 2020

The upcoming Okinawa bike claims to be a 100% indigenously developed product. The Oki100 has a lithium-ion battery, which covers a range of 150 kilometers on a single charge. It can reach a top speed of 100 kmph, which is 15 kmph more than its closest rival – Revolt RV400. The first bike from Okinawa is expected to cost around Rs 1 lakh. With vehicle loans readily available, you can apply for bike loan and purchase the Oki100 when it is launched around the festive season.
