    Hero Electric calls the Photon a “high-speed e-bike”, but if it’s crackling fast performance you are expecting, you’d be very disappointed. In India, the average e-bike’s performance leaves a lot to be desired; they underperform in almost all parameters as compared to internal combustion engines. My first tryst with an e-bike was almost a decade back and its top speed was about 30kmph or thereabouts. The Photon, on the other hand, claims a top speed of 45kmph - blisteringly fast compared to other e-bikes. Coming down the crest of a small hill, much lower than the usual flyover, I could hit 55kmph. Going up the hill, however, is a different matter altogether. Performance is adequate if you want to use the Photon for short trips around the neighborhood. Braking is sharp, if not progressive, and the single-disc setup can shed the top speed of the Photon in a jiffy. With a 50km range on a full charge, at least I wouldn't try to take the chance of venturing out to the other side of town to visit friends. And if one gets caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic, which most of us living in metros have become so used to, that 50km range may even reduce to 35 or 40km. And of course, going up a flyover at 35kmph isn’t something you’d want to be doing, with an assortment of auto-rickshaws and other two-wheelers honking up your, er, taillight. We would suggest you take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and riding comfort. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more:- Hero Photon: Review
