India Will Soon Get Its First Electric Sports Bike, To Be Launched At Auto Expo 2018

Published on 21 December, 2017 at 3:37 pm By

India is one of the largest two-wheeler markets in the world and is largely dependent on petrol-run bikes and scooters. But increasing fuel prices and concerns over fuel economy, have led a growing number of companies to focus on getting into the electric bike and scooter market. However as of now, electric two-wheelers have limited scope in India due to factors like their limited speed, range and not so good performance.

But it is all going change as Emflux Motors, a Bangalore based start-up, will officialy launch their first electric superbike, called Emflux Model 1, at Auto Expo 2018. It will be competing in the segment of 600-650cc motorcycles.

What’s amazing about this e-superbike, as claimed by the manufacturer, is that it can attain 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.

The sports bike comes with a lithium ion battery that takes just 36 minutes to reach 80 percent from a fast charger. Specifications wise, the Model 1 will come with liquid cooled AC induction motor boasting 50KW peak power and 84Nm torque at 8400 rpm. While ABS is sourced from Continental, batteries are from Samsung.
