Electric motorcycle maker Revolt Intellicorp has stopped taking bookings of the Revolt RV 300 and Revolt RV 400 electric bikes, saying that the company will not be accepting fresh bookings due to an overwhelming response. The company said in a statement that it’s overbooked and will first cater to its customers who have already placed orders and deliver the confirmed orders. The company will re-open bookings after meeting the current set of orders it has already received from six cities where it has presence.
“We’re overbooked. And we thank you for the overwhelming response. We’ll not be taking fresh bookings for sometime,” a message on the Revolt Intellicorp website says. The company currently has a production facility in Manesar, near Gurugram, in Haryana.
“We are overwhelmed with the response we have received from our customers across the six cities. We are currently overbooked and are committed to catering to the confirmed orders first. While we are extremely thrilled with the response, we are working hard to ramp up our production capacity,” Rahul Sharma, Managing Director, Revolt, and co-founder of Micromax, said in a statement.
