The Emflux Two is a performance electric streetfighter and is in early stages of development
Bangalore-based EV startup, Emflux Motors made their debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. The Emflux One has been dubbed as India’s first electric sportsbike and was among the highlights of the show. Now, Emflux has teased a streetfighter on its social media account, which is likely to be called the Emflux Two. From the teaser image, it’s evident that the upcoming electric motorcycle will have a sharp and sporty design. The styling seems to have been inspired from the KTM 1290 Duke and we hope the production version carries forward the aggressive lines. According to company officials development of the Emflux Two is in its early stages and that the electric motorcycle will make its debut by mid-2020. It’s likely to share its frame, powertrain and other cycle parts with its full-faired sibling and could be priced lower than the Emflux One.
Company officials also added that development of the Emflux One is on track with feedback from industry veterans and the team is currently working on ironing out some electrical issues. The electric sportsbike will be sent for ARAI certification next year and the One is expected to make its debut in India by late 2019.
The Emflux One is powered by a 3 Phase AC Induction motor which is IP 67 rated and capable of producing 81hp and 84Nm of peak torque. The company claims a city range of 200km and a highway range of 150 km (at 80 kph). Top speed for the electric sportsbike is 200kph, and it can complete the 0-100kph acceleration run in 3 seconds (both are claimed figures with the optional carbon fibre panels). With fast charging, Emflux claims that 80 per cent of the lithium-ion battery can be charged in 36 minutes. Talking about features, it gets equipped with a 6.8-inch TFT touch screen, GPS navigation, dual front and single rear camera, park assist, LED headlight and taillight, Bluetooth connectivity and over-the-air updates. The base version of the Emflux One is expected to be priced around Rs 6 lakh, while the higher-spec variant with top-shelf cycle parts and carbon fibre panels is likely to retail for around Rs 11 lakh.
