eBikeGo claims the Rugged to be the strongest electric bike ever built. The bike is designed and manufactured entirely with in-house design and manufacturing. This makes the new electric two-wheeler part of the Make in India program.

Stating the reason behind the launch of the Rugged, the company stated that they discovered the significant scarcity of strong electric bikes in the market that are intended for Indian road conditions. The company completed riding 50 million kilometres and 2400+ eBikes from all available OEMs and manufacturers from across the world.

After a complete analysis of millions of data points collected by EBGmatics (eBikeGo's proprietary IoT technology), the company concluded that the Rugged electric bike needs to be customised to survive the conditions of the Indian roads.

The company is yet to announce the complete specification of the eBikeGo Rugged. However, we can expect it to feature a range, which will make it easy for daily commutes. It could also feature other IoT capabilities along with enhanced mechanicals with improved suspension and brakes.

eBikeGo will also provide a smartphone application, where users can keep a check on the number of units being used while charging their two-wheeler or three-wheeler. The same application will also cater to vendors who install these stations at their establishment.

The eBikeGo charging station provides multiple payment options such as UPI, credit or debit cards, or cash. According to the company, It will cost about 20-50 paise per km to charge the two-wheelers as well as three-wheelers. This makes EVs around five times cheaper to run than petrol-powered vehicles.

Irfan Khan, Founder & CEO of eBikeGo, said, "We at eBikeGo decided to take the bull by the horns after waiting for three years for someone to come in and create a robust electric bike that is affordable and can be adopted by the public. After evaluating multiple OEMs in the industry, we zeroed down on Boom Motors for the design and manufacturing of the vehicle."
