Ranbir Singh and Alia Bhatt, the star couple has been in the news lately. We have featured many stories in the past where Ranbir Kapoor is seen with some of his expensive car or SUV on the road. He is a car enthusiast and we have seen him drive some of these expensive cars himself in the past. In most of the cases, we have seen Ranbir Kapoor in an expensive car. He is rarely seen on a motorcycle. Here we have a video where Ranbir Kapoor is seen riding an electric bike worth Rs 1.5 lakh in Mumbai.
The video has been uploaded by Cars For You on their YouTube channel. In this video, the actor is seen inside a construction site. It looks like a house which is under construction. According to the spotter, the actor was seen riding the electric bike in Mumbai’s Bandra area. It is one of the posh areas in Mumbai. The electric bike that Ranbir is seen riding in the video is a Mate X electric bike. This is probably the first time, Ranbir is getting spotted with this electric bike.

In the video, the actor is seen getting on the electric bike and pedalling it outside the construction site. Once, he is on the road, he stops pedalling and uses the battery power to ride the cycle. The Mate X electric bike is actually available in three versions. The difference in all three variants is the battery pack. One more thing that makes Mate X electric scooters unique is that they can be easily folded. The video mentions that the bike is worth Rs 1.5 lakh and in that case, it is probably going to be the 750W version which offers a maximum range of 80 km. The top-speed of these bikes are limited to 32 kmph and it offers a thumb throttle which engages kicks in the electric motor mounted on the rear wheels.
This is probably the first time, we have seen a Bollywood celebrity on a electric bike. Ranbir, as we mentioned above is generally not seen around two wheelers. He is mostly associated with cars. The actor was recently blessed with a baby girl and various reports about Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor has been surfacing online since then. The star couple has a good collection luxury cars and SUVs.
Ranbir has cars like Land Rover Range Rover Vogue (previous generation), Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, Audi A8 L W12 and so on. Alia Bhatt on the other hand has cars like Land Rover Range Rover Vogue (previous generation), Audi A6, BMW 7-Series, Audi Q5 and so on. Coming back to the electric bike, Mate X bike is made by a company from Copenhagen, Denmark and is priced at around Rs 1.50 lakh. The bike gets other features like disc brakes, LCD display on the handle bar that shows necessary information like battery usage and range. the design of the electric bike is quite different from what we normally see in Indian market.
