Raptee Energy’s assembly line in Chennai is now fully operational, with the company gearing up for the commercial launch within this quarter, the company said in a media release. The first batch of motorcycles will undergo rigorous testing and homologation processes, including ARAI certification and on-road safety checks, to ensure they meet the highest standards of quality and performance, the release added.

CEO and co-founder, Dinesh Arjun, said, “At Raptee, for over 4 years, we have imagined and reimagined electric motorcycles to give consumers not just a replacement but an actual upgrade from traditional ICE alternatives. After years of hard work, we are thrilled to introduce our first production-ready motorcycle, a testament to our dedication to innovation and sustainability. This milestone not only represents our growth as a company but also reflects our commitment to providing tech savvy thrilling riding experience along with complete safety and freedom from range anxiety.”

As part of its commitment to enhancing consumer experience, Raptee plans to open its first store in its Chennai facility. This store will not only serve as a point of sale but also offer consumers a comprehensive brand experience, including a walkthrough of the manufacturing facility to see the motorcycles being crafted, the release said.

Raptee Energy’s motorcycles have a portfolio of patented technologies and innovations, featuring a high-voltage drivetrain for superior performance, seamless charging using existing CCS2 infrastructure, and advanced driver assistance systems for unparalleled safety, the release added.
