Emflux One, India’s first electric superbike, from Bengaluru based Enflux Motors, was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. Launch date has not yet been confirmed but it will be launched soon. Launch will take place in phases and in limited numbers.
Emflux One, as seen in the accompanying video, performs a burnout. It is its massive Pirelli tyres that are the first to be noted. It is built on a tubular steel trellis frame and gets 17” wheels fitted with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres measuring 120/70-R17 at the front and 180/55-R17 at the rear.
On board features will include a 6.8” TFT instrument panel with GPS navigation, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, real time vehicle diagnostics and a dedicated mobile app for remote customization and bike to bike connectivity. Watch the burnout video below.
Emflux One electric sportsbike is powered by a 60 kW AC induction motor offering around 70 bhp power. Its power source is a Samsung lithium ion 9.7 kWh battery pack that can be charged in a matter of 30 minutes upto 80 percent. The fully charged battery will offer a range of 200 kms while top speed will stand at 200 kmph.
Suspension will be via 43mm USD fork in the front; which can be upgraded to race spec Ohlins USD forks. At the rear there are gas charged monoshock, which can be upgraded to Ohlins 46mm Monotube Gas Shock. Braking is via Brembo 300mm dual disc brakes in the front and single 200mm disc brake at the rear. Dual channel ABS will be offered as standard. Expected price is at around Rs.5.5 lakhs.
While the biking community awaits launch of the Emflux One, there is also another mid performance motorcycle, Emflux Model Two and Two+ that is being planned at a later date. Both these electric bikes (Two and Two+) will be more affordable as compared to Emflux One.
The bikes have been teased but details are sketchy. The teaser images reveal that top speed will stand at 160 kmph, range will be of 160 km and acceleration time from 0 to 100 kmph will be achieved in 4.5 seconds. Emflux Two+ will be more performance oriented with a top speed of 180 kmph, range of 200 kmph and acceleration time at 3.6 seconds from 0 to 100 kmph.
