Followed by major motorcycle manufacturers around the world like Harley-Davidson, BMW, Triumph, Ducati, Honda, Yamaha getting into the electric market, so now ROYAL ENFIELD.
The UK based electric conversion automobiles company recently converted a mechanical Royal Enfield Classic to Electric Royal Enfield, named it as PHOTON.
UK company is specialists in converting classic cars into electric vehicles and the founder of this company created this for the love of his father on motorcycles.
However, this motorcycle is priced a little too high compared to our new launches planned for this year by the major players in the market. Also, since this is an UK made, possibility of bringing it to Indian roads may burn a few more dollars for the buyer.
