The vehicle will be manufactured from Matter’s facility in Ahmedabad and will be available across major cities in India.
Matter electric motorcycle powertrain and salient features
The bike is designed for an operating ambient temperature of -10 degrees to 55 degrees (c).
The liquid cooling technology simultaneously cools the rotor and stator, enabling faster heat withdrawal from the electric motor, even when the vehicle is not moving.
The drivetrain has been subjected to extensive testing and validation at Matter’s facility to ensure that it not only meets the evolving stringent standards on performance and safety, such as AIS 041 and IP65 but is also capable of meeting extreme performance requirements.
The liquid cooling system not only cools the battery pack but is also used for cooling the Motor and Power Electronics.
The battery pack is liquid-cooled, with a 5 kWh capacity. Comes with overcharge protection.
Supports both standard and fast charging through a common connector. It can be charged with a 5 Amp, 3-pin plug point. The vehicle is equipped with a standard onboard 1kW Charger. Charging time of less than 5 hours.
Features – Touch-enabled 7-inch Vehicle Instrument Cluster (VIC), powered by 4G connectivity and Android software. The VIC displays speed, gear position, riding mode, navigation, media, and call control to the rider.
Remote lock/unlock, geofencing, live location tracking, and vehicle health monitoring.
