About Raptee Energy

The concept of Raptee was born in 2019 with the sole intention to provide a no-compromise upgrade of motorcycles to the ICE motorcycle customers in India. Reminiscing, though we may not have known how this would pan out back in the day, we did see that we wanted to make a difference. A difference that transforms the contemporary concept of motorcycling in today’s time. A change that inexorably ties innovation and sustainability together. We wanted to do what we did best, mindfully innovate. Raptee is a full stack electric motorcycle startup with a very strong technical moat.

The company was founded by four engineers from Chennai (Ex Tesla, Wipro), working on bringing a no-compromise electric motorcycle to an otherwise scooter-only EV market. We are on a mission to craft a motorcycle that is more than just an EV; instead, an augmented machine built with an adaptive machine-learning algorithm to bring you an individualistic experience. Being a 90+ member team, we bring in a portfolio of 60+ patents (and counting) working towards a no-compromise electric motorcycle for the consumers in the largest motorcycle market in the world. The company aims to offer the customers a premium experience with cutting-edge technology products and passionate people to make mobility smart and safe.
