Another entry from India’s startup eco-system

Indian startup eco-system is giving the motorcycle world another name in the newfound electric business. Emflux Motors is entering with tall claims of having a 125 mph superbike that runs on electricity for up to 125 miles at full range.

Set to unveil at the upcoming Indian Auto Expo 2018 in January, the Emflux Concept One is aiming at the premium market that caters to the mid-weight segment. The company has been working on their superbike for just a couple of years, unlike other startups that have taken more than half a decade to develop their products.

Starting testing their technologies on a KTM RC390 chassis setup, the folks at Emflux say that they have come a long way in a very short period to develop their system. The concept model comes with an all-electric powertrain that uses a liquid-cooled AC induction motor to produce 50kW. Equivalent to a 600cc petrol-powered motorcycle.

Peak power is rated at around 70 hp and 61 lb-ft of max torque. All this torque comes at zero rpm that will dash the 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds. Now that is superbike territory for sure. Torque keeps hitting hard all the way up to 125 mph top speed.

The air-cooled battery pack includes lithium-ion batteries supplied by Samsung that will supply power for a total of 125 miles for a single charge. The batteries also support quick charge that will provide 80 percent charge in just 35 minutes, and a full charge in three hours from a standard wall charger unit.

Top-spec equipment comes courtesy Ohlins and Brembo. Single sided rear swing-arm gets bolted on steel trellis frame designed in-house. Continental’s custom configured dual channel ABS comes with regenerative braking.

A 7” TFT display gives you navigation, real-time bike dynamics, bike-to-bike communication and tethers to your phone via Bluetooth for music and calls. A smartphone app allows the rider to access the bike’s diagnostic tool remotely.

Pricing and availability are TBD. Emflux looks to set up fast-charging units across India and Europe in phases.
