Electric motorcycles have been gaining a lot of popularity all over the world. This is especially true in the Asian market, specifically in India, where lots of new motorcycle manufacturers are hoping to make it big in the electric scene. Just recently, electric motorcycle startup Abzo Motors unveiled its first electric cruiser model called the VS01.

Abzo Motors has been around since 2019, so it’s a very new player in the electric motorcycle segment. That said, the brand is adamant on building its own unique style, as it’s one of the few manufacturers to offer an electric cruiser-style motorcycle, while other brands focus primarily on the electric scooter segment. As such, Abzo is clearly targeting the enthusiast market with the VS01. Let’s take a closer look at the bike’s technology and features.
