Environmental conservation is a topic of great concern today. Everywhere, you have people talking about the ill effects of pollution and the damage that it causes to the environment. One of the significant contributors to environmental pollution is vehicle exhaust. Does that entail that one should stop driving vehicles altogether? One can switch over to environmentally friendly fuels. The BSVI emission norms that kick off from April 2020 are welcome steps in this direction. The introduction of electric cars and bikes is another factor that can protect the environment from annihilation.
Revolt Motors, a reputed electric two-wheeler manufacturer in India, has come up with excellent solutions by introducing two electric motorcycles, the Revolt RV400, and Revolt RV300. Let us look at the seven things you should know about the Revolt RV400 and Revolt RV300.
