Emflux Motors, a Bengaluru-based technological start-up, is in the process of designing and developing what will be India's first electric superbike. The electric sportbike will be comparable to 600-650 cc motorbikes with internal combustion engines in terms of performance, with a top speed of 170 kmph and 0-100 kmph acceleration in just 3.5 seconds. The bike will run 200 km on a single charge with just 36 minutes required to charge 80 per cent of the battery. Emflux intends to complete the prototype and showcase it at the 2018 Auto Expo.
The company, founded by CEO Varun Mittal, is building the electric sportbike from scratch which includes in-house development of design, drivetrain and chassis. The prototype, currently called Model 1, is undergoing tests and the company expects to finish it by June 2017. The first model will be a limited edition bike with just 200 to be produced at an estimated price of around Rs 5 lakh.
Model 1 will be a full faired sportbike and the company intends to make a second bike, Model 2, which will be a naked sportbike with the same specifications as Model 1. Model 2 will come in two variants - one with 150 km range and the other with 220 km range. Also in the pipeline will be a Model 3, a power cruiser with even better specifications than Model 1 in terms of range and power.
