According to the company, the company’s product, known as Ridge, will appeal to riders from the ages of 18-60 years. The scooter is available in colour combinations of red, green-gold, red-white and white. Alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and telescopic suspension help the vehicle to handle various terrains, whether they are the clogged roads of the cities or the barely-there roads of rural India.
