$120,000 ultra-premium Arc Vector electric motorcycle to begin deliveries

The Arc Vector luxury electric motorcycle’s development has been tumultuous, but good news appears to be on the horizon.

The British-made electric motorcycle is now preparing for deliveries after returning from near death.

In case you blinked at some point in the last three years, here’s a quick refresher on Arc’s whiplash trajectory.

Husqvarna’s electric motorcycles could be built in this new Bajaj factory

Indian two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj commands a healthy share of the vast local scooter and motorcycle market. Now the company is building a massive new factory for the production of electric two-wheelers, and that could mean big news for Europe’s electric scooters and motorcycles as well.

Bajaj announced that its new production facility would be solely for the production of electric vehicles, and it is putting US $40 million into its production. Expected to be ready by June 2022, the new facility will span over 11 acres (approximately 50,000 square meters).

Bajaj expects that it will be able to produce around 500,000 electric scooters per year – the company has its own electric scooters such as the Chetak, but it has also partnered with Husqvarna.
