Emflux Motors is a Bengaluru-based start-up specialising in electric motorcycles and providing solutions for electric vehicles. They will be launching the country’s first high-performance motorcycle, the Emflux ONE at the 2018 Auto Expo in February.
CarandBike reports that the brand will be setting up experience centres in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru in the beginning of 2019; and the sale will commence on that occasion. Apart from showcasing the bike at its experience centres, Emflux will also invite select customers to take a test ride of the bike on a race track. However, the bike launching at the Expo will be an advanced prototype, with 80% production-ready finish. Ankit Khatry, Co-Founder, Emflux Motors, said:
We have already despatched the bikes to be launched at the Auto Expo 2018, and we will display the bike at stall E16, Hall 08 at the Auto Expo.
The payment for the electric motorcycle can be made online. As per the media site, Emflux Motors plans to export the bike to foreign markets as well. The company is discussing with the distributors of European countries; Canada, Mexico and Australia as well.
The Emflux ONE has a claimed top speed of 200 kmph, and takes three seconds to reach 100 kmph from a standstill. Peak power stands at 71 bhp, and torque at 75 Nm. The bike has a 200 km range when ridden in the city, and highway range reportedly depends on the style of riding and the conditions of the road.
Power comes from Samsung lithium ion battery with 9.7 kWh cells. The liquid cooled AC induction motor is capable of producing 50 kW peak power. Top-spec cycle parts like Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension are standard. The bike gets a 7 inch TFT intelligent instrumentation, with GPS, smartphone and bike-to-bike connectivity.
