Emflux Motors starts test rides for its electric sports bike the Emflux One. After having been in development for the past two years, the bike is now finally ready to hit the roads after the company completed its intensive testing and has started accepting deposits from potential owners for the bike.
The One is powered by a liquid cooled 54kW motor equivalent to producing 72bhp and 84Nm of torque. The battery pack weighs about 50kg and is composed of 896 cylindrical cells that give us a range of about 200km. Stopping power comes from Brembo brakes while the suspension duties are handled by an Ohlins setup that can be seen on more expensive sports bikes. The bikes come equipped with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres that provide grip not only in your city commute but also on the race track.
The design of the bike seems to have been inspired by the KTM RC8 from the front with its vertical LED headlamps. Even with a full fairing the bike weighs only 169kg and is capable of achieving 0-100km/h in 3sec. Details about the charging technology aren’t discussed, but the company claims that 0-80% charge will take 36 minutes.
The bike is still in its prototype form and will take a few more months before the final product arrives. The price is expected to be close to six lakh Indian rupees (£6500). The company doesn’t seem to stop at bikes as the owners reveled: “Once we develop the technologies to run an electric superbike, it will be easier for us to build any vehicle that we want.”
Once launched this will be the cheapest electric sports bike and will take on the likes of the Lightning Strike priced upwards of £10,000. In addtion to this the Emflux One will also compete against conventional sports bikes like the Honda CBR650R and Kawasaki Ninja 650.
