Emflux Motors To Launch India’s 1st Electric Superbike In 2018
Indian automobile market will soon feature an exclusive product from Emflux Motors, a Bangalore based start-up that’s promising an electric superbike by 2018.
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 3.5 seconds. Their first product will debut at 2018 Auto Expo and carries an impressive design in its digital design image.
The first prototype of the motorcycle is called Model 1 and currently faces the testing stage. Its testing may end around June 2017. Model 1 carries a lithium ion battery that takes just 36 minutes to reach 80 percent from a fast charger.
They have claimed a top speed of around 170 kmph while the sprint time for 0-100 kmph will take under 3.5 seconds. The battery offers a range of 200 kms while the noiseless drivetrain 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 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.
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.
