Testing done in 40 degree temperature
To test the bike’s high temperature tolerance, it was driven at a temperature of 40 degrees in Vellore, Tamil Nadu. During testing, the bike was driven on the highway, and also in mountainous roads. The bike’s capabilities were thoroughly tested, so the testing team wanted it to be driven at the hottest temperatures in real conditions.
Temperature sensors were installed in many places in the bike to measure the temperature of the bike’s battery and other equipment. The bike covered a distance of 20 kms in about 1 hour and 15 minutes, which found that the current temperature of the cell is 39 degrees while the maximum was 41 degrees. The bike was driven for a total of 6 hours in several intervals in which it was revealed that the temperature of its battery did not go above 41 degrees. There was no overheating or any technical issue during testing, due to which the bike did not stop anywhere in the middle.
