Emflux Motors, a Bangalore based EV start-up made a big announcement that they were making India’s first electric super-bike and it will be in the market in 2019.
The Emflux One, promised a lot when it first appeared in 2018, in terms of design as well as specs. After all, 200kmph, 200km range and 0-100kmph in 3s were specs unheard of in the Indian EV space.
Not only this, the 71hp/84Nm from a liquid-cooled induction motor along with a 169kg kerb weight.
Fast forward to the present, the company says that they are progressing well in terms of all the technologies developed in-house, unfortunately, lack of investment is making things a bit slow for us.
The bike is now claimed to be more ergonomic and easy to handle. The electronics circuit performance is being tested rigorously. Also, Emflux have got their in-house developed Dynamometer, Motor Testing Rig, Battery Cell & Pack Testing Setups, Automated Spot Welder, etc.
Things which stay in place for the motorcycle from the concept stage include the 9.7kWh battery pack as well as the fast charger capacity to charge the bike to 80 per cent of its potential in 36 minutes.
The jet engine-like sound of Emflux One motor and transmission is already appreciated by people who took test rides of the vehicle.
Emflux is happy with the positive response for EVs in the Union Budget. It will help them price their motorcycles more competitively thereby widening the acceptance range from the society.
It is likely that the Rs 6 lakh price may go down owing to the concessions received. The launch of the motorcycle should be by the end of 2020 in phased manner.
