Emflux Model 1 Electric Superbike to Launch @ Auto Expo 2018
Indian automobile market will soon feature an exclusive product from Emflux Motors, a Bangalore based start-up that’s promising an electric sports bike by 2018. Emflux Model 1, their first superbike segment performer, has been confirmed for an official launch at Auto Expo 2018. You can see the new Emflux Model 1 on February 7, 2018 at stall E16 in the Hall 08 of Indian Exposition Mart Limited.
India has witnessed few other brands like Tork Motors and Ather Energy in the same segment but none other talked about making something that could claim 0-100 kmph in under 3.0 seconds. Simply amazing!
Emflux Model 1 carries a lithium ion battery that takes just 36 minutes to reach 80 percent from a fast charger. The bike comes with 50KW peak power and 84 Nm of torque. ABS is sourced from Continental while batteries are from Samsung.
They have claimed a top speed of around 200 kmph while the sprint time for 0-100 kmph will take just 3.0 seconds. The battery offers a range of 200 kms while the noiseless drive-train will even help in reduction of noise pollution.
Emflux Motors will launch the Model 1 in a limited edition version, claiming just 199 units for a price tag of approx INR 5.50 lakh each. They have planned the Model 2 as well, getting a naked street fighter design and two battery variants, 150 km and 220 km.
If this was not satisfactory, Model 3 with cruiser design and even more powerful battery will be offered in future. The design language for upcoming products is still a mystery from the company’s side. Premium features also include single sided swing-arm, Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes. The 7 inch touch TFT console is used here for the console purposes.
They have worked very hard on the project as the in-house manufactured components includes the motor, battery pack, management system, electric vehicle supply equipment, swing-arm, transmission, body panels and even the major overall controller.
The company is headed by Mr Varun Mittal and gets funding via independent investors. This new product can change the way people look at electric machines in India as they have always been considered weaker.
