Major Insecurities in Electric 2-Wheelers in Nepal: Should you buy it or not?

The electric vehicles Revolution has successfully transitioned from the future to the present.

Electrical vehicles have already emerged as the possible replacement for Fuel Driven Vehicles in Nepal, however, there are various insecurities and misconceptions among the Nepali public. 

So here, we would like to address most of those insecurities related to Electric 2-wheelers, and we hope we can help you return with a proper answer.

1. EVs don’t have that Battery Range I need

Yes, we agree that with an EV, you can’t always travel as far as you want. But it certainly isn’t as little as you think.

With a range of 100-150 km per charge (which is common in Electric 2-Wheelers these days), you still can reach a lot of places.

With our very own Komaki Ranger, you get a range of 150-180 KM on Nepali roads, which for reference: is good enough for you to reach Hetauda and return to Kathmandu, in a single charge.

And talking about our Electric Scooter, Komaki SE offers a range of 120 km per charge on Nepali roads, which again is surely good enough for mid-distanced rides.


2. Electric is not suitable for the Steep Roads of Nepal

Absolutely Wrong! EVs too is handily equipped to handle those sharp rises when out on the road. It offers a very smooth riding experience thanks to the powerful motor it comes with, the assistance due to all the features, and its innovative technology.

Talking about our very own Komaki SE, it comes with a Motor Power of 3000W and Peak Power of 5200W, along with incredible features and technology. It ensures a smooth riding experience even on the steepest of roads and even with double-load.


3. EVs’ Batteries don’t last long.

There are statistics suggesting most EV batteries will last around 5-15 years before they need to be replaced.

Well, the batteries used on EVs these days are very powerful. Most of the EV’s Batteries these days come with a Warranty for 1-3 years and with a claim that they can easily last over 5-10 years.

Our very own Komaki SE comes with a powerful 74V 40AH Lithium-ion Battery that lasts for years and along with that, you get 2 years free + a 1-year service warranty.

4. EVs are as slow as Bicycles.

We’re sure a Bicycle can’t travel at 60-90 km/hr. The Electric 2-wheelers these days normally offer a Top Speed of 60-90 km/hr.

Also, The average speed globally is 30 km/hr (Source: Movotiv), and the top speed limit of Kathmandu is 40 km/hr, so the top speed of 60-90 km/hr is certainly more than enough.

On top of that, in the case of Electric 2-Wheelers, when the driver of an EV pushes down on the accelerator, the transition from stationary to speed is almost instantaneous.

As usual, let’s look into our own bikes for reference.

Komaki Ranger comes with a top speed of 100 kmph, whereas Komaki SE comes with a top speed of 80 kmph.

5. EVs cannot handle rain as it is electric

Not true at all! All the EVs go through plenty of tough tests to ensure user safety prior to entering the market, including crash and electrical safety.

Therefore, there is no doubt can they are safe to drive and charge in any weather conditions.

Similarly, all the Komaki E-bikes and E-scooters are well-tested prior to entering the market, ensuring you the safest of the rides.
