The sleek SUV-scooter will see deliveries commencing in Bengaluru

As the world transitions towards sustainable transportation, Bengaluru-based electric two-wheeler startup, River, has made waves with the launch of its maiden EV, the Indie. This sleek and innovative electric scooter is set to revolutionise the way we commute, offering a perfect blend of performance, convenience, and eco-friendliness. The Indie rivals the likes of Ola S1 Pro, Ather 450X, TVS iQube and Hero Vida V1 in the segment. 

Revised Pricing Announced

Initially priced at Rs. 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Bengaluru), the River Indie's asking price has undergone a revision due to changes in the FAME 2 subsidy. The revised price now stands at Rs. 1,38,000, an increase of Rs. 13,000 from the introductory pricing. Despite the price hike, the Indie's mechanicals, features, hardware, and overall capabilities remain unchanged.

Impressive Range and Performance

The River Indie boasts an impressive 120km of maximum range in Eco mode, powered by a 4kWh battery. Its 4.5kW motor delivers a thrilling top speed of 90kmph in the Rush mode, making it a perfect choice for urban commuters seeking both efficiency and exhilaration.

Innovative Design and Ample Storage

The Indie's design is a perfect blend of functionality and style, featuring twin LED headlights, a spacious floorboard, and a comfortable single-piece seat. River has thoughtfully equipped the Indie with foldable footpegs, providing added legroom for riders. The scooter's ginormous underseat storage can easily accommodate a full-size helmet and still has room for groceries, while an additional storage compartment at the front offers a convenient place for your phone and other essentials.

Accessories and Customisation

To enhance the user experience, River offers a range of accessories for the Indie, including pannier mounts, panniers, a top box mount, and a phone mount. This allows riders to customise their scooter to suit their individual needs and preferences.

Delivery Commences in Bengaluru

The much-anticipated delivery of the River Indie has commenced in Bengaluru, giving local residents the opportunity to experience the thrill of eco-friendly electric mobility firsthand.

With its impressive range, performance, innovative design, ample storage, and customization options, the River Indie electric scooter is poised to make a significant impact on the Indian EV market. As deliveries commence in Bengaluru, we eagerly await the response from early adopters and the potential for nationwide expansion.
