Auto Expo 2018 will witness numerous automakers showcasing their masterpieces in front of a large gathering. One particular segment that will see many newcomers is the electric vehicle territory and the Government of India's 2032 vision has given a major boost. Bengaluru-based startup Emflux Motors will launch one interesting electric bike at the biennial event. The company told Express Drives that the eco-friendly superbike is christened Emflux One and it has capabilities of reaching an electronically restricted top speed of 200 kmph. A sprint from 0 to 100 kmph takes just 3 seconds. All this is possible with the help of an electric motor that churns out a maximum power output of 80 hp while the peak torque stands at 84 Nm. The Emflux One comes equipped with a Samsung Li-ion battery rated at 9.7 kWh. After a full charge, the motorcycle will offer a range of 200 kms in city riding conditions. The price of the Emflux One will be under Rs 6 lakh for the Indian two-wheeler market and this will be revealed at the Auto Expo 2018 only. The company will also launch Emflux Two, a naked bike that will share its platform with the Emflux One, but at a later stage.
Digging into further details of the Emflux One, the electric superbike will come with hi-spec Brembo brakes for smooth and effective braking duties. The suspension system has been sourced from Ohlins and a single-sided swingarm should offer the visuals of a high-end sportsbike. The instrument cluster of the Emflux One packs in artificial intelligence capabilities and features smart display. The system also supports smartphone connectivity. The Emflux One will also offer a Continental dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and the bike will support regenerative braking which means that the range can be extended when the rider slows down the bike by just calming down the throttle. More features to be announced at Auto Expo 2018.
The Emflux One electric superbike will be available for sale in New Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai in the initial phase. The company will be setting up experience centers in these cities and a customer can visit them in case he or she desires to know more about the motorcycle and see the bike in flesh. One interesting thing that the company told us is that selected customers will be invited on track days to test the bike exhaustively and the track days will take place in different cities. For a customer who wants to purchase the Emflux One, he or she will need to visit the company's website and make the payments through multiple digital methods. The exact details regarding the company's upcoming dealership network will be announced at Auto Expo 2018.
Emflux Motors will install 1000 WARP chargers on the highways across India and Europe in the next five years. These will support fast charging facility and will charge the motorcycle at the rate of 14 kW. However, the total output is rated at 110 kW keeping in mind the company's future projects. The start up is founded by three individuals namely Varun Mittal, Vinay Raj Somasekhar and Ankit Khatry. Varun Mittal is the CEO of the company while Vinay Raj Somasekhar heads the design and is a co-founder. Ankit Khatry is the second co-founder and leads the operations unit.
