While the petrol prices are soaring up the general public is busy looking for alternatives that would help them in gaining a bargain, in the daily travel. And to help them along we have brought an alternative that would be totally worthy in the long run.
RTO Approved Electric conversion kits which would help in converting conventional vehicles into electric vehicles, a video over at YouTube by GOGIA1 on their YouTube channel, the video shares all the details about the conversion, the conversion kit would sit in the frame right where the engine used to be and would power the bike.
Cost of the whole Kit
The cost is about 35,000 and this does not include the batteries as well as the charger, these are charges just for the installation. The battery pack would cost around Rs 50,000 and the charger which is not included in the kit is around Rs 5,600 which is a bizarre detail in the matter as the charger should be included in the whole package.
The kit is currently approved for Hero Splendor only. It is mentioned in the video that any Hero Honda Splendor sold after 1997 is eligible for this conversion kit and it will be considered RTO approved. The owner will have to make necessary changes to the Registration Certificate and endorse it as an electric vehicle. But how far your regional RTO would allow it would be a challenge.
Range of 150 after a full charge
The controller and motor in this kit comes with a 3-year warranty. Once the electric conversion kit is installed on the bike, it would get the EV green number plate. GoGoA1 is compliant with National Green Tribunal or NGT as well. After installing the electric conversion kit, the motorcycle is claimed to have a riding range of 151 km when fully charged. The video mentions that this kit is RTO approved and if the bike gets involved in an accident, the insurance company would pay for the damage.
Output and Top Speed
The motorcycle uses a hub motor which has capacity of 2Kw and generates a peak torque of 127NM, the bike can carry upto 100 to 300 kg, the top speed is not mentioned but the bike was able to cruise easily uptill 70kmph, the kit also has a regenerative braking which helps the car gain electric charge while braking.
