The Joy E-Bikes Are As Expensive As The TVS Apache RR 310!


The Joy E-Bike’s new range of motorcycles promise a running cost of 40 paise per km

  • The e-bikes are powered by a 5kW BLDC motor.
  • All the bikes feature a lithium-ion battery with a range of up to 110km.
  • Top speed is rated at 90kmph for all the bikes.

The wait for the likes of Emflux One and Ultraviolette F77 may have left enthusiasts high and dry, but there’s a new crop of companies looking to fill the void. After Kabira Mobility, Vadodara-based Wardwizard Innovations has launched a slew of performance-oriented electric motorcycles under its e-mobility brand, Joy E-Bike.

After launching a bunch of low-speed electric scooters, Joy E-Bike has launched Skyline (Rs 2.29 lakh), Hurricane (Rs 2.33 lakh), Thunderbolt (Rs 2.33 lakh) and Beast (Rs 2.42 lakh), making these the costliest EVs on sale in the country at the moment. The Skyline and the Thunderbolt are the brand’s fully faired offerings while the Beast and the Hurricane cater to the streetfighter enthusiasts. Just like with the Kabira KM 3000 and the KM 4000, these bikes look like blatant ripoffs of some popular ICE motorcycles.

Interestingly, all the bikes share the same internals. The 5kW BLDC hub motor is common in all the bikes and has a claimed top speed of 90kmph and can achieve a peak torque of 230Nm, however, the torque at wheel hasn’t been revealed. While the Hurricane gets a 54Ah lithium-ion battery pack offering a range of 90km, the Thunderbolt, Skyline and the Beast promise a range of 110km from its 72Ah battery pack. All the bikes get a 10Amp charger, however, the charging time hasn’t been revealed yet.

The bikes share the same braking setup, with twin disc brakes at the front and a single disc at the rear. Even the telescopic fork and linkage-type monoshock is common for these bikes. Though the brand hasn’t shed any light on features like regenerative braking, presence of riding modes or bluetooth connectivity, it states that the bikes come with Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.

We couldn’t help but notice the similarities with Kabira Mobility’s KM 3000 and KM 4000. From the Kawasaki Ninja 300-inspired tail section to the frame, handlebar and the wheels, these bikes appear to be cut from the same cloth. In fact, Kabira bikes claim to offer more range and better top speed than the Joy E-Bike products, while being almost a lakh cheaper. If you are on a hunt for an electric motorcycle, your best bet is to wait for the Ultraviolette F77.
