Not much was known about Emflux One, a Bangalore-based EV startup until recently when they introduced their slick new electric sports bike. It had been under development for the past two years, and since good things come to those who wait, we’re finally getting a glimpse at the prototype.
It has the potential to become one of the next top contenders for affordable electric motorcycles. It’s made up of high-end components that actually rival some of the best electric motorcycles debuting this year.
Powering this electric powered sports bike is a liquid-cooled 50 kW (71 hp) motor capable of providing 84 Nm (62 lb-ft) of torque along the bike’s single-sided swingarm. All of that electric torque helps the Emflux One achieve a stunning 0-62 mph time of just 3.0 seconds.
The bike weighs 373 lbs and should be capable of traveling up to 121 miles on a single charge of its Samsung battery. They haven’t discussed charging technology in detail but claim an 80% charge should take just 36 minutes.
I think it’s truly inspiring to see a small startup come up with such an exciting product that would revolutionize the electric motorcycle industry. At just $9,000 it could be obtained by nearly everyone and allow middle-income earners to pick one up as a fun weekend toy too. With its affordable price, impressive specs, innovative design and quick charging time this electric sports bike makes a lot of sense and is sure to shake things up.
