    Default Emflux Motors teases new electric streetfighter, Emflux Two!

    Emflux Motors, the Bengaluru based electric vehicle startup, has taken the Indian automotive scene by storm yet again as they have teased their new model, Emflux Two, an electric streetfighter. Emflux Motors generated a lot of buzz when they announced the Emflux One, India's first electric superbike. While we still have some time before we actually see the One hit the roads, they have announced their new models, Emflux Two and Two+.



    The Emflux Two is based on the same platform as the Emflux One, their fully-faired electric superbike, the Emflux Two models are being touted as the affordable version of the One. The teaser shows silhouettes of both the models and not a lot has been revealed. The details that are visible though, show a high mounted handlebar for a sporty yet relaxed riding position, funky LED headlamps, a muscular tank and a sharp and aggressive bikini fairing... or tank-shrouds if you'd like to call it that. Radical styling has done quite a few manufacturers a lot of good... especially to some orange ones!

    While the platform may be similar, we expect the Two and Two+ to be lower specced when compared to the company's flagship, One. The Emflux Two will do 0-100 km/h in 4.5s, will hit a top speed of 160 km/h and provide a range of 160 km. The Two+, which is the more premium model, is expected to have a range of 200 km, a top speed of 180 km/h with the 0-100 being dispatched in 3.6s! Those are very respectable numbers considering the fact that being electric, these motorcycles will be relatively heavy.



    While the post made by Emflux Motors on their social media channels was more about providing information on the 2 new models, they also took this opportunity to answer some questions that have been raised regarding the models. One of the biggest questions is the delay in the development of Emflux One. They have stated: "Building a product from the ground up is a task that requires tremendous amounts of skill, care, attention, and iteration, and this increases ten-fold in the case of a motorcycle. Every single thing is critical when it comes to design and engineering, considering that one tiny detail overlooked or one small component badly engineered by the company could prove fatal to the consumer. The list of problems to be solved is nearly endless, and getting through all of this takes time."

    While all the 3 models announced by Emflux are on the premium end of the spectrum, another question that popped was if Emflux will make more affordable bikes. They stated: “Yes. However, Emflux will remain a premium brand, and will not drop below a certain category of motorcycle, but this does not mean that we won't make products for everyone. The way in which we'll go about doing this is through our own sister-brands or through technology partnerships with companies wanting to build their own EVs for the market. We'll announce more on this in the coming months.”

    Unless the bike is on sale its just useless , it doesn't matter if they come with Emflux 100 for that matter.

    Thumbs up Re: Emflux Motors teases new electric streetfighter, Emflux Two!

    So, they did not launch the One and went straight to Two already... Hmm. And its not a leak. Did something go wrong with the One?

    This is not a good business strategy too, even if they have all the right intentions.

    1. Most will ignore the One in pursuit of the Two series, which is bad for the company in the growth stage. Each company's first product must always be a cash cow. The further development depends on this.
    Means if they launch the One now, they won't sell much because people will be waiting for the Two series.

    2. Having 3 products this early means your own starting customers are divided into 3 groups. I hope their manufacturing is a flexible one and they can save on costs.


    Suddenly, Ather's strategy seems solid now, they launched two similar products with shared parts, and comparatively economical to purchase and use both.
    And I believe even a 140 kmph electric vehicle is mighty fast, it can run that speed whole day due to being electric, not to mention the overall torque!
    They can start selling such vehicles to deal with Dominar before aiming big.

    As of now, since the Two-series appears to be junior to the Flagship One, I do hope they launch the Two-series first and gather some cash...

    Who are they making these bikes for I wonder, the specs look great but only in numbers. These are not practical and more likely will be relegated to the museums of rich blokes and btw who will buy their technology if it's so damn costly and not meeting cost equations vis-a-vis petrol based ones. This is mainly about packaging the latest battery technology, which is anyway third party, with sensible cost and charging infrastructure, those who think long will make the cut in these markets.

    Emflux is as irrelevant as Tork
