Words by the management
The Founder and CEO of Ola Electric, Bhavish Aggarwal told that, “Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder, and CEO, Ola Electric said “Over the last two years, Ola has strongly positioned itself as a frontrunner in India’s adoption towards EV in the 2W segment. I am proud of what we have achieved and am truly grateful for the trust and love of the Ola community. We are working with speed and with a clear vision to support the country’s leadership in Electrification. By developing core technologies in-house, and through adopting economies of scale, localized supply chains, and manufacturing engineering, we will ensure complete price parity between ICE and EV vehicles. The Gen 2 platform is a testament to this commitment. With the new range of scooters launched today including the S1 Pro, S1 X portfolio, and our recently launched S1 Air, I firmly believe that customers will now have no reason to buy an ICE product.”
He further said, “I am also thrilled to announce the global debut of Ola’s electric motorcycles that will be launched towards the end of 2024. Designed and engineered in-house, these motorcycles represent Ola’s leap into the future of motorcycling”.

Future of Motorcycling

While pre-reserve for bikes are open, they will be introduced in the Indian market before the end of the year, 2024.
Adventure For the people who seek thrill and adrenaline, the bike from Ola, the Adventure is purposeful, strong, and sure-footed. Its tall, athletic, and upright look presents an element of purity and clarity of its purpose and helps it look different from other adventure bikes.

Roadster Stepping away from the design language of a traditional motorcycle, the modified look of the Roadster greatly reveals how the form is following the function. Roadster also gets flowing elements around the charger cowling that makes it look playful, agile, real, and focused.
Cruiser With a laidback stance and sensual lines, the bike, Cruiser is made for enjoying the open roads and the freedom it brings. This motorcycle looks mature but ominous with great and sophisticated bodywork. The floating upper body is connected with the rear part of the bike in a powerful manner providing it with a great ride.
