The all-new Bajaj Chetak electric scooter is expected to feature an IP67-rated lithium-ion battery while the brand has equipped it with a 4kW electric motor. There is no confirmation whether the battery pack will be removable though, considering the officially revealed images, the chances remain to be thin.

The electric scooter will allow the riders to operate it in two riding modes namely: Eco and Sport, which are expected to offer a range of 95km and 85km respectively. Apart from this, the brand has also equipped the scooter with a reverse assist feature.

The battery pack can be charged via the 5-ampere home socket while the brand is also expected to offer a home-charging station at minimal prices. The electric scooter further requires 5 hours for a full charge.

In addition to this, the scooter has been equipped with complete LED lighting setup while it gets round LED DRLs surrounding the front headlight. The wide front apron style inspired from the Yamaha Fascino adds to its superior looks while the fully-digital instrument panel adds to the rider’s convenience.

The advanced technology of the electric vehicle further matches perfectly with the steel body design. The suspension duties are handled by a single-sided trailing arm unit at the front while the rear has been equipped with a monoshock unit.

The Bajaj Chetak electric features a front disc brake and a rear drum brake along with MRF Zapper-K tubeless tyres. The instrument console can be further connected to the rider’s smartphone and offers real-time riding dynamics in addition to offering the utmost security.

The brand has unveiled the all-new Bajaj Chetak in 4 different colours including Red, Gold, Ivory and Blue. The brand will be offering the e-scooter from its existing retail network in the Indian market.

Bajaj Auto is all set to enter the electric scooter market by launching their new brand called Urbanite under which it plans on launching its new range of scooters. According to a recent report, the brand will be unveiling its first-ever e-scooter expected to christened as Chetak Chic Electric under the Urbanite brand.

The brand has already sent out media invites for an upcoming launch event happening on October 16, 2019, which will see Nitin Gadkari, minister of road transport and highways and Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, as the chief guests.

The reports also suggest that the brand has registered the Chetak Chic Electric name for its upcoming scooter considering Chetak was one of the torchbearers of the brand’s scooter portfolio and had a good run for decades in the Indian market.

The camouflaged test mules of the upcoming electric scooter from Bajaj has been in the news since long. In terms of the design, it looks sleek and features an attractive headlight (probably all-LED). The Urbanite scooter seems to be highly inspired by the retro design theme of the Piaggio Vespa.

Though Bajaj has not confirmed anything about their upcoming scooter, it is expected that it would get modern features which will include an all-digital instrument console and it will probably also get e-SIM embedded connectivity feature, which will allow the users to keep a check on various details about the scooter via a smartphone app.

One of the spy photos of the Chetak Chic Electric also reveals that it would feature a DRL tube around the main LED headlight, and we must say that it looks quite interesting. Also, it is rumoured that the front of the scooter will get a single-sided suspension and the recent spy shots did confirm it to an extent.

Mechanically, the scooter is expected to be powerful enough that one can cruise at a speed of 80 kmph on the highways. It can feature driving modes too like the already available electric scooters in the market by Ather Energy.

Earlier in January this year, Rajiv Bajaj, the Managing Director of Bajaj Autos said that they would also be launching electric 3-wheelers under the same Urbanite brand name. Mr Sumeet Narang will head the Urbanite unit dedicated to electric vehicles in assistance of Mr Amit Nandi, head of Probiking business unit.

In the coming years, most of the companies would be shifting their focus towards electric vehicles, the reason being that from the year 2025, the Indian government is planning to ban the sale of sub-150cc bikes and scooters to make way for the electric 2-wheelers.

Incubated at SINE-IIT Bombay, the electric vehicle startup by the name Liger Mobility has developed a proprietary self-balancing technology that will allow the two-wheelers to balance themselves while at the same time increase the comfortability and offers ease of riding.

The startup has been founded by Vikas Poddar (IIT Madras) and Ashutosh Upadhyay (IIT Kharagpur). The self-balancing technology can be installed on any automatic scooter. For instance, if the customer is planning to buy a Honda Activa at INR 60,000, the customer can avail the self-balancing technology at 10% of the scooter price that will be INR 6,000 for this case.

Since many two-wheeler manufacturers have introduced the same prototypes of self-balancing technology for scooters and motorcycles in the past, Liger Mobility has set their technology apart by making it affordable. Both the co-founders believe that the new technology does make the scooter expensive by 10% though at the same time, will make it safer to ride as well as intelligent enough to take voice commands.

Liger Mobility Concept Video

The duo also promises that they already have a prototype that responds to voice commands as well as parks itself. The recently uploaded video by a Youtube channel does offer us an insight into how the new technology will work and its impact on the two-wheeler’s performance.

The team at Liger Mobility worked relentlessly for two years developing the code as well as multiple prototypes to bring their dream into reality. The Liger self-balancing technology has been developed with the same ballast algorithm required to provide stability to a vehicle in real-time.

Their team has brought together a robust algorithm which works wonders for self-balancing with the help of accurate sensors. Though there is a long road ahead for the Liger Mobility to handle the backwards of decreased range as well as battery power required, it would be interesting to see their plans in the coming days.

The suspension duties on the Pep+ are handled by telescopic forks at the front while the rear features a side-sided shock absorber. The 110mm drum brakes at either end have been mated to Synchronised Braking Technology (SBT). The lightweight scooter is one of the most preferred scooters in the country by women riders since it is easy to handle as well as features a unique design language.

The premium feature list on the new matte edition remains the same when it comes to mobile charger socket, open-glove box, TVS’s patented ‘Eazy’ Stand technology, side stand alarm, under-seat storage hooks and more. With a kerb weight of 95 kgs, the easy-side-stand technology offers to reduce the effort required for putting the scooter on the centre stand. The Scooty Pep Plus Matte Edition offers a mileage of around 55-60kmpl while the top speed stands at 70kmph (approx.).
