OBEN RORR Overview
Let’s check on the full specifications, features, and Oben Rorr price in Nepal with availability.
The Oben Rorr has a neo-sport design. It gets all LED setups which are said to improve battery management. The Rorr comes with a round-shaped LED headlamp, contributing to a futuristic design. However, it does look like a naked sport bike with low-placed handlebars from the front (like scrambler bikes). Rorr has a big LED console screen. The front has a telescopic fork, while the rear comes with a mono-shock absorber.
The body is designed in a way that battery placement is right below the fuel tank, in the middle of the bike. The seat used in this bike is a split seat with a split grab rail which gives a sporty look. The motor placement is right behind the battery and uses a belt drive mechanism. You won’t see the motor on the bike’s rear wheel.
Looking at the tail, it has a simple looking LED light setup accompanied by the LED side indicators. The number plate holder’s placement position is high though it’s just below the side indicators. Moving on to the ground clearance, this bike has a massive gap of 200 mm. Bumps will be no issue for this bike. At the same time, Rorr can easily wade up to 230 mm.
Under the performance section, Rorr packs 4.4 kWh lithium-ion batteries. The battery comes with MHX cooling technology. Moreover, the Rorr comes with an IPMSM Motor. The motor in the Oben EV Rorr can produce 10kW max power with rated continuous power of 4kW. The Oben EV Rorr provides 62Nm of torque.
According to Oben, this motorcycle achieves a speed of 0 to 40 in just 3 seconds. And the claimed top speed of this motorcycle is 100 km per hour. Oben Rorr is provided with three riding modes: Havoc, City, and Eco. In a single full charge, EV Rorr can provide a range of 200 Km as claimed on IDC (Ideal Driving Conditions). However, the actual real-world mileage of Rorr is 150 Km in Eco mode and 120 Km in City Mode, while Havoc mode gives 100 Km. So, with a speed of 100 Km/h, ev bike can travel up to 100 Km in a single charge is outstanding.
Surprisingly, this big battery takes only 2 hours to a full charge through a standard charger compatible with a 15A power socket.
