Mankame EP1 Automotive is a Hubli (Karnataka state) based tech start-up. Most electric motorcycles in the Indian market claim do more than 150 miles on a full charge, usually going for much less in reality. Mankame Automotive, on the other hand, claims that, on paper, can exceed 300 miles.
This has brought this electric bike in news. No motorcycle in the market can come close to matching comparable performance figures with this mileage per charge.
These performance figures results from virtual testing in the lab, by simulating real-world conditions in computer models. The electric superbike EP1 will be comparable to 600-650 cc motorbikes with internal combustion engines in terms of performance, with a top speed of 250 kmph.
Mankame Automotive has started a crowdfunding program to build the Mankame EP-1.Mankame predicts deliveries for somewhere in 2022.
