The two-wheeler motorcycle maker has launched two electric cycle models under the Avior range that will be priced between INR 18,990 and INR 19,290 as the exclusive showroom price in Delhi. These two e-cycles have been targeted at people, both male and female, working in the corporate sectors of metropolitan cities like Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad.

These e-cycles have been fed with 24V lithium ion batteries which can be completely charged within a maximum of 5-6 hours and can hit a top speed of 25 kilometres per hour. On the full throttle mode, these cycles will run a distance of 20 kilometres. Further, with the assistance of pedal, this can be further extended upto 5 kilometres. The AMX model, targeted at men, gets a 6-speed gearbox and disc brakes in the front. The AFX has no gear, but has electronic braking, besides having a metallic carrier in the front and a saree guard. The AMX has a wheelbase of 1,105-mm and weighs 34-kgs. On the other hand, the AFX has a wheelbase of 1,040-mm and has a lighter 33-kg weight.

In order to market this new range of cycles, they will be made available on online platforms and e-commerce websites. Moreover, the CEO of Hero Electric India has said that these e-cycles will also be available in other cities as well as there is a good response from the dealers. He further added that these Avior range electric cycles would be a little more expensive in other cities as the Delhi Government offers 15 percent subsidy and zero per cent value added tax on e-cycles.

The company said that it will gradually increase the sales of the AMX and AFX in other cities as well, through its 250 dealers across India once the Government come out with new policies on e-cycles.
