The electric mobility segment in India is still in its nascent stage when compared to those in developed countries. However, the sudden spike in demand and much-needed push by governments have resulted in several names joining the bandwagon. As a result of this, we have got several new-age electric two-wheelers which are bettering in performance and efficiency.

However, many of the new models are entering the entry-level category, which has restricted performance and outputs. Some of these restrictions include a power output of less than 250W and a top speed of less than 25 kmph. These restrictions enable them to comply with the E-bike category under the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR). For this category, one does not require registration of the vehicle and a valid driver’s license. Following are some of the most popular electric two-wheelers falling in the E-bike category, which do not require a valid driver’s license to ride:

Joy E-bike Monster

Fancied owning a Honda Grom in India? While that’s going to be a distant dream, for the time being, Joy E-bike is offering a similar kind of mini-bike essence to the Monster. The Joy E-bike Monster looks like a conventional motorcycle but attracts glances due to its compact dimensions. Powering the Monster is a 250W hub motor and a lithium-ion battery pack, with the latter offering a decent range of 75 km. The Monster also gets premium features like upside-down front telescopic forks, a digital instrument console and front and rear disc brakes.
