Coimbatore: eMotion Motors has unveiled the country’s first indigenously developed geared electric motorcycle ‘Surge’ with 40 new features. And this was done on World Environment Day in Coimbatore today.
The air is set to be cleaner with electric vehicles and the Government pushing for all-electric transport by 2030.

Surge will be available in two variants, with the top one clocking a top speed of 120km/hr and a rapid acceleration of 0-60km/hr in less than four seconds. The bike will have smart features such as LED backlit display, GPS navigation, mobile phone integration, cloud connectivity and IOT features for an enhanced user experience.

The bike will have many firsts in the two-wheeler electric segment. Being a geared electric motorcycle, it gives high torque multiplication at the wheel for riders who would otherwise miss the fun and high acceleration of conventional motorcycles.

The reverse gear feature allows the users to manoeuvre in narrow roads and while parking, and has large cabinet space which can store more than just a helmet. Surge will run for 100km in a single charge, with express charging getting the battery from empty to full charge in just 30 minutes.

Surge is set to hit the roads by 2020. The start-up has plans for three offerings in various two-wheeler segments in the coming years. With concerns over rising fuel prices and pressure on the Government to control emissions, electric vehicles promise a stable future in mobility, and Surge is looking to be a pioneer among them.

eMotion Motors is an enterprise that looks to combine passion for high-performance vehicles with a forward-thinking desire for clean and efficient energy sources. Electric vehicles in the country have a long way to go, as performance issues in currently available models continue to hinder their use.

“Using electricity for transport does not have to be a compromise in terms of performance. We hope to be among the pioneers of popular, high-performance electric vehicles in the country,” says, S Pranav, Founder and CEO of eMotion motors.
