A new electric motorcycle with gears has been unveiled by Matter Startup Electric Vehicles.


The drivetrain on almost all electric motorcycle prototypes or production models is single-speed. It may seem like a good idea for beginners to use the twist-and-go feature, but many die-hard riders still prefer the foot-operated gearbox, since it can drop one gear in DTC if necessary. A four-speed gearbox gives a retro feel to the brand-new electric motorcycle concept developed by Indian electric vehicle and technology startup Matter.


 The rear wheel is driven by a motor with 589Nm of torque and 10.5kW (14.1hp). Battery capacity is 5 kWh, and it is a liquid-cooled battery. A liquid cooling system is employed in order to make the system as efficient as possible. It is both the motor and battery that are cooled. The bike takes five hours to charge completely on a simple outlet.

There will also be a fast charger, but details have not been released yet. A 7-inch TFT display on the instrument panel shows the rider information about charging and range. As an added feature, a smartphone can be connected, music can be played, and navigation can be performed.  A reverse gear facilitates parking, and it has been tested for extreme temperatures, from -10 to +55 degrees Celsius. Finally, the motorcycle is equipped with three driving modes and ABS. Even though Matter hasn't named its electric concept, it intends to construct the first batch of production models in Changodar, Ahmedabad. A future expansion will bring the facility's capacity to 200,000 units from its current 60,000 units.


 Motorcycles make up about 75% of the two-wheelers sold every year in India, estimates Matter founder and CEO Mohal Lalbhai. Considering most start-ups make electric scooters, we decided to create an electric motorcycle with gears. The division is currently untouched by major players, giving him a lot of room to grow."
