Ola Electric, the sister brand of the Bangalore-based ride-hailing firm Ola Cabs, recently unveiled its four electric bike lineup at its Independence Day event. The company plans to launch these bikes in the growing EV motorbike segment to take an early mover advantage. Recently, a video of the in-depth walkaround of all four bikes was shared online. The presenter in the video showcases all the bikes in detail and reveals important information about each of them.
The video of the walkaround of all the newly unveiled Ola Electric EV bikes has been shared on YouTube by EV Gyan on their channel. The presenter of the video starts with an introduction, mentioning that Ola unveiled four of their upcoming EV motorbikes at their first customer day event. The first bike the presenter then showcases is the Ola Electric Adventure. He mentions that it is one of the biggest bikes in the entire lineup, and from the looks of it, it can be easily determined that this bike has been designed to go off-road and take on adventures, as its name suggests.
Ola Electric Adventure
The presenter then goes into the details of the Ola Adventure and the other bikes, stating that as of yet, the company has not unveiled any information about the electric powertrain of any of the four bikes showcased at the event. After this, he states that the Adventure, Cruiser, and Roadster, all three, will be based on the same platform, but their flagship model, the Diamondhead supersport bike, will be based on a completely different platform.
Talking about the Adventure, the presenter mentions that the concept model at the event has been given a 19-inch spoked wheel at the front and a 17-inch spoked wheel at the rear. He adds that, according to him, the ground clearance on this bike is a little less as compared to other bikes in the segment. After this, he talks about the front of the bike and states that the company has given this model a very small headlight, but he believes that once it becomes production-ready, it will get a bigger headlight.
After this, he talks about the seats of the bike and adds that they are very thin, which indicates that this is just in the prototype stage. He then talks about the design of all three bikes of the same platform and mentions that they all look very similar. Moving on, he then talks about the rear of the bike and mentions that it gets some luggage carriers and points for other accessories. After this, he adds that the Adventure has been given USD fork suspension at the front and a mono-shock in the rear. Lastly, he adds that the bike will be powered by an electric motor, and it will be a chain-driven model and will also get a 5-inch display in front of the handlebar.
Ola Electric Cruiser
He then moves to show the second bike in the lineup, which is the Ola Electric Cruiser. He starts off by saying that this bike most strikingly resembles a Ducati motorbike. He then talks about the design of the bike and adds that, according to him, this is the most imposing bike and it gets the best-designed wheel of all. He mentions that this bike gets a unique wheel setup at the rear, as it gets a single swing arm setup.
He elaborates on the wheels and mentions that this bike also gets a 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear wheel. Moving on, he adds that the Cruiser also gets USD fork suspension at the front and a monoshock at the rear, with two disc brakes at the front and a single disc in the rear. He mentions that, like the Adventure, this bike is also a chain-driven bike. In terms of design distinctness, he adds that this bike will be a single-seater bike and currently has only one seat.
Ola Electric Diamondhead
After the Cruiser, the presenter then showcases the flagship Diamondhead EV motorbike and starts by quoting that he personally doesn’t understand what type of bike it is. He mentions that Ola Electric founder Bhavish Aggarwal explained the Diamondhead, but he could not understand what he meant. He then adds, apart from that, what he can notice is that it is one of the most futuristic bikes he has ever seen. Moving on, he mentions that this bike gets a display which is shown when the flap in front of it goes down. The presenter then mentions that this bike has a very low position, and it will get a handlebar which has been positioned very far from the seat.
Next up, he adds that this bike also gets dual disc brakes on the front and a single disc brake on the rear. Another important thing that the presenter highlights is that this is the only bike that is belt-driven and not chain-driven. He then points out that the monoshock in the rear of this bike is a little more slanted than on other bikes. After this, he also mentions that this bike gets two positions for the footpeg, which are comfort and sport. He then moves to the front of the bike and adds that the front suspension of this bike is very complex, and he can’t understand how it will work.
Ola Electric Roadster
Lastly, he showcases the Ola Electric Roadster. He starts off by mentioning that this bike also gets the same dual-disc setup at the front and a single disc in the rear. Next, the presenter adds that out of all the bikes here, it is the most practical-looking bike, and he adds that it is the only bike that has been driven to the venue, suggesting that it is in later stages of development than the other bikes.
He then adds that the Roadster will also be a chain-driven model and it gets a split seat setup. He then shows the rear single disc and rear footpegs and monoshock suspension. Lastly, he mentions that this bike also gets a 5-inch display, and he believes that all the bikes have the same display at the moment. Next up, he adds that this bike also gets 17-inch rear wheels with a single swing arm which has been positioned on the left side of the bike.
