Walton launches BRTA approved electric bikes

Walton has officially launched their new line of electric scooters for the Bangladeshi market.

Called ‘Takyon e-bikes’, these environmentally-friendly electric scooters have been approved by BRTA, said a press release.

Walton e-bike is the first-ever in the segment in Bangladesh that got the BRTA approval. Like the conventional gasoline-run motorbikes, the eco-friendly Walton e-bike now can legally run on the Bangladesh roads with BRTA registration.

This bike will cost only 10-15 paisa per kilometer.

Walton Digi-Tech Industries Limited’s Deputy Managing Director Engineer Liakat Ali said that they are marketing e-bikes in the domestic market under the brand name of TAKYON with Walton logo.

 Initially, they released one model named TAKYON 1.00 with three different colours-red, blue and grey.

Price of this e-bike is set at Tk 1,27,750.

Customers can purchase this eco-friendly e-bike from any Walton showrooms across the country.

Like the conventional gasoline (petrol-octane) run bikes, Walton’s e-bikes can also be registered with BRTA for 2 to 10 years, he said adding, the registration cost of Walton e-bikes is much less than that of gasoline bikes.
