Speaking on the occasion, Mr S. Krishnaswamy, general manager- BSA Motors; - said
Quote:

the company was pinning high hope on the five models – Smile, Diva, Street Rider, Roamer and Roamer Plus - to double its business in the country in year’s time.

“The electric scooter market in India is currently estimated at Rs 400 crore. The industry is expected to double in a year’s time and we hope BSA Motors will register an equal growth momentum during the same period.
BSA Motor’s foray into the electric scooters category has helped the company to expand its portfolio in the two wheeler market, Krishnaswamy added.

The company announced an exclusive offer for the Orissa customers. The customer will get cash card offer of Rs 2000 and battery warranty for one year.

Claming that the initial market response for BSA Motors products had been positive in the South and Orissa, Mr Krishnaswamy said he hoped a rapid growth in the coming days.

The unique features of these electric scooter models are its protective safety switch, twin passenger foot rest, ergonomically designed seats, great storage space, side reflectors and many more innovative features that are not currently available in the market
the GM said.

Out of the five models, three models are in 250 watts, one in 500 watts and one in 800 watts.

These bikes look good but girlish!! The success of these depends on the pricing and the mileage of the battery!!

The models looks pretty decent than the competitors!

Seems to sell in good number as BSA has a good reputation in Bicycles.

Wishing BSA Motors Best of Luck.

There are around 2,3 ebike's lying in my society now,were used regularly when bought new but now it seems like the owners have lost interest.

And that's the reason i hate TINY electric bikes & cars as they just cant take place of our regular bikes/Cars.

Re: BSA Motors launches five models of Electric Scooters
 
Bsa Motors Diva has a motor operated with battery and it is capable of churning out a power-output of 250 W. The batteries of the sealed acid type with a capacity of 22 Ah and 48 V. The engine can deliver distance coverage of around 70 Km for each charge session. The Bsa Motors Diva engines are integrated with automatic gear shift capability, giving it an overall smooth ride. The Bsa Motors Diva has been designed to touch a maximum speed of just 25 kmph, which is reasonable when keeping in mind the age-group that the company has set to focus upon – 16 to 20 years. Additionally, one would not require a License or Registration in order to ride this Scooter.
