The Revolt RV 400 is the first electric motorcycle from Revolt Intellicorp, a Gurugram-headquartered start-up headed by Rahul Sharma, co-founder of Micromax Mobiles. The Revolt RV 400 lays the claim of being India's first electric motorcycle with artificial intelligence. It's positioned as a commuter motorcycle, albeit with an electric powertrain, and will compete with conventional 125 cc commuter motorcycles. So, what exactly is the Revolt RV 400?

The overall design isn't superlative, but it's quite likeable. And it's not an entirely new design, with quite a bit of resemblance to the Chinese-made Super Soco TS1200R electric bike.

The starter motor, ECU are all developed in-house, according to Revolt.
The instrument panel is full-digital, and the RV 400's claim to fame of being India's first artificial intelligence-enabled motorcycle is backed by a few unique features. An embedded 4G LTE SIM enables all internet and cloud-connected features of the RV 400 and a dedicated Revolt mobile app offers a long list of unique features. Riders can access motorcycle diagnostics, satellite navigation, bike locator, geo-fencing, doorstep battery service, and online payment gateway for swapping out a fully-charged battery, as well as the dedicated battery swapping network and locations, all from the mobile app. And the RV 400 also offers the rider the option of using several synthesised sounds which can be selected from the app. The sound quality isn't that impressive,
