If you are a bike lover and you want to buy a bike then a question appears in your mind “Electric bike vs Petrol bike- which one you buy? price, range, specifications, and other benefits”. Today the government and automotive companies are making an effort to shift the two wheeler from fuel to electric -is it the right choice for a customer?
If you want to buy a bike in future but you are confused what you will choose, electric or petrol bike .Today in my blog i discuss “Electric bike vs petrol bike -which one you buy ? price ,range, specifications, other benefits”.
Right now, electric biker un on lithium ion and petrol bikes run on petrol. Today, we can see the availability of electric bikes in the market. The range of electric bikes is 80km to120 km and some bikes provide 150 Km plus range. On the other hand, petrol bike range is much more than the electric bike .There is no issue on the range.
If you are compare specification between electric bike and petrol bike, there is lot more difference between electric bike and petrol bike because electric bike run by electric motor and petrol bike run by powerful combustion engine
The major question that comes to our mind is the price difference between electric bikes or petrol bikes. I already discussed electric bikes run by batteries and motor systems. On the other hand petrol bikes are run by petrol and combustion engines. So, the price of both bikes should not be the same.
The electric bike comes with a price between 1 lakh to 1.5 lakh, the most valuable part of the bike is its lithium ion battery.
On the other hand petrol bikes are easily available in the market between Rs-50,000/- to above.
You are ride 5000 Km in future that cost would be raised Rs 5000/- But for petrol bike , you have to pay 1 lakh for 5000 Km
Electric Bike Advantages
Cost per kilometre
Electric bike has a battery charging facility. The battery capacity is around 3 to 4 kilowatt. As per the charging cost Rs 5/- rupees per unit ,its cost is 15 to 20 rupees. Under 15 to 20 rupees you can go 80 kilometres .But the petrol bike covers 50 to 60 kilometres in one litre i.e you have to pay ₹100/- rupees.
You already know, the petrol engine emits CO2, CO and various toxic gases. On the other electric bike is zero emission(run by battery). There is no effect on the environment.
The maintenance of electric bikes is nearly zero. because there is very little rain. Yes, you may change the battery tyre after 5 to 6 years. That would be costly as per the lithium ion battery. But in future battery technology may change that can affect battery cost. For a petrol bike you have to pay more for maintenance because it is run by a combustion engine.
Electric Bike Disadvantages
Electric bikes come with two types of charging facility that is portable home charger and fast charger . Public charging is not available everywhere. If you drive 15 to 20 kilometre everyday then you can buy this electric bike and charge it at home easily. But for the petrol bike , there are a lot of petrol pumps available across india.
One of the big issues for electric bikes is charging time. Electric bike takes 4 to 5 hours (for portable charger) and 1.5 hours( fast charger). But a petrol bike takes just 5 minutes to fill the petrol tank of a bike. So, petrol bikes are much safer.
Right now, electric bikes are not available across India,so the availability of parts is not enough across India . But for petrol bikes, there is no issue.
Right now if you compare electric bikes and petrol bikes then petrol bikes are much better . But electric bikes are not for away. In the future electric bikes are coming fast because of their availability and infrastructure.
Reading the advantages and disadvantages. You can easily decide which one you have to buy: an electric bike or a petrol bike. Please comment and share your opinion” which one is good?”
