The Indian electric motorcycle Emflux One presented last year will not be launched this year as originally planned, but only next year. Nevertheless, the startup from India is already announcing its second Emflux Two model.

The company explained the delay to media representatives as being due to a lack of investment. Therefore some processes in the development had slowed down. The market launch of the motorcycle is to take place gradually by the end of 2020.

Despite the delays, Emflux sees itself on the right track with its self-developed components, but without going any further into detail. The plans are at least ambitious: The One is to become an electric superbike and immediately set an exclamation mark: According to the manufacturer, the machine will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds, reach speeds of up to 200 km/h at peak times and have a range of up to 200 km. Emflux states that the weight, which is important for motorcycles, is just 169 kilograms.

Compared to the concept presented in 2018, many points have been improved, including performance, ergonomics and aerodynamics. However, the 9.7 kWh battery remains unchanged. It should be able to charge to 80 per cent in 36 minutes. With a 16-amp home charger, the process should take 3:30 hours.

The plan is to create a sporty and attractive brand image with the Superbike – even if powerful sports motorcycles only make up a fraction of the registrations on the large Indian two-wheel market. From 2021, the startup wants to offer a mid-range motorcycle at a more affordable price in higher quantities. Technical details of the Emflux Two are not yet known.
