MX Moto, a new electric vehicle startup, has launched its first electric bike, the MX9, in India. The MX9 is a high-performance electric motorcycle that offers a range of up to 140 km on a single charge and a top speed of 80 kmph. The MX9 is priced at Rs 1.46 lakh, ex-showroom, and is available in two colour options – grey and black.
Features and Specifications
Powered by a 4,000 Watt BLDC hub motor, the MX9 delivers an impressive 140 Nm of peak torque with an impressive 98% conversion efficiency. A 3.2kWh LIPO4 battery pack, with a charge time of under four hours, provides reliable energy for your journey. Even when the throttle’s not engaged, regenerative braking is in place to help with recharging the battery.
For a comprehensive riding experience, the MX9 comes well-equipped with features like a TFT screen with navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and app integration, cruise control, reverse assist, anti-skid/hill assist, and the handy parking assist. For rider convenience, there’s USB port to charge mobile devices, and LED headlights with DRLs, LED turn indicators, and disc brakes on both ends.
The 21-inch front wheel and the 17-inch rear wheel feature an upside-down fork in the front, and an adjustable monoshock at the rear – similar to racing motorcycles – that provides a central shock absorber to boost balance and handling when taking those turns.
Competition and Future Plans
MX9 is one of the few electric motorcycles in the Indian market that competes with the likes of Kabira Mobility KM 3000 and KM 4000, Odysse Electric Hawk, and BattRE Electric LoEV. The MX9 claims to offer better performance, range, and features than its rivals at a competitive price.
MX Moto is a sister brand of Komaki, an established electric two-wheeler maker in India. MX Moto aims to cater to the bike enthusiasts who are looking for an eco-friendly and fun riding experience. The company plans to expand its product portfolio and dealership network in the future.
Rajendra Malhotra, Managing Director of MX Moto, said, “With a robust focus on advanced safety features, rigorous testing and relentless pursuit of continuous improvement, MX Moto places the well-being of riders at the forefront. By creating a secure riding experience, we ensure that bike enthusiasts can embark on their adventures with peace of mind. Our first bike, MX9, is a complete package of safety, performance and intelligence and I am certain it will soon be the favourite pick for riders seeking amazing riding experience in clean mobility.”
