Revolt RV400 is India’s first AI-enabled electric motorcycle. Since launch, demand for Revolt RV400 is growing day by day. Therefore, Revolt RV400 has been sold out for the months of September and October this year. Yes, you read it right. Gurugram-based Revolt Intellicorp announced that the RV400 has been sold out in Delhi and Pune, where the motorcycle is on sale currently, for deliveries scheduled till the end of October.
According to a report of NDTV’s carandbike, interested buyers can sign up for the second batch of deliveries that will take place between November-December 2019.

In July 2019, the electric two-wheeler company did say that it had received over 2500 bookings for the electric motorcycle.
Rahul Sharma, Founder, Revolt Intellicorp said, "The response to the RV400 indicates that the consumer shift is already underway, and that India is ready for the electric revolution. It reinforces our intent to continually deliver consumer delight and making EVs accessible to the masses with initiatives such as the MyRevolt Plan (MRP). In the last 4 days we have had consumers in thousands at our hubs in Delhi without the showrooms being active, confirming their booking online.
