The EV conversion kit created by GoGo1 is the to start with these types of conversion kit for motorcycles approved by RTO
The world-wide auto industry has unequivocally lent its aid to electric mobility as battery-driven automobiles are observed as the most effective way to bring down emission levels. Whilst new electrical cars (EVs) are currently being introduced to everyday living every other day, there is no hiding the simple fact that the vast majority of mobility answers at present even now run on fossil fuels.
To have an immediate impact on bringing down emission levels, many existing IC engine automobiles would require to operate on battery. This could occur only with an EV conversion kit where by the traditional IC motor is changed with an electric powered powertrain comprising a battery and an electric powered motor.
While an EV conversion kit for automobiles was lately introduced a several months back, a very similar conversion kit for bikes has been designed and introduced last thirty day period. Conceptualised by a Thane-primarily based EV startup named GoGoA1, this is the 1st occasion wherever an EV conversion kit for two-wheelers has been authorized by RTO.
Cost of this conversion package has been pegged at Rs 35,000 whilst an additional GST of Rs 6,300 is also used. The complete kit is remaining supplied with a 3-12 months guarantee. This is excluding the battery pack. If you want the 151 kms vary battery, the whole kit and battery charge will just take the price to Rs 95,000. This excludes the expense of the donor motorcycle.
Other components of this EV conversion package consist of a DC to DC converter, a new throttle, wiring harness, key change with controller box and new swing arms. Orders for this EV conversion package can be booked on the net by way of the company’s official web site. The elements will be sent and mounted at the area set up centre of GoGoA1.

Modified Hero Splendor Electric with this powertrain is claimed to attain a leading speed of 80 kmph whilst it can return a variety of 151 kms on a comprehensive demand. This powertrain has been outfitted with battery regeneration technology which could recuperate 5-20 % of the battery with the assistance of a 65A regenerative controller. Maximum performance of the electrical motor has been rated at 92 %.
