The equilibrium of the Indian two wheeler market is shifting towards embracing innovations, the chief one being e-mobility. With fuel prices going sky high, this second largest market is cutting ties with conventional sources of power and adopting the pocket friendly concept of e-transportation. Electric mobility has enthralled the world as it costs less than half of their gasoline counterparts. They also spew out zero gas emissions, making them a brilliant alternative for sustainable fuels.
