The EcoDryft, a new all-electric vehicle from Pure EV, has been presented. With prices to be revealed in the first week of January, the Hyderabad-based start-up claims that its most recent electric two-wheeler is targeted at the commuter market.
According to Pure EV, it has sent its dealers in India demo versions of the new EcoDryft, and reservations for the motorcycle will start next month as well.
Pure EV’s EcoDryft Design and Specifications
Design-wise, the EcoDryft resembles a typical contemporary commuter motorbike thanks to its angular headlamp, single-piece stepped seat, telescopic front suspension, and dual shocks at the back. The motorcycle has alloy wheels in the front and back measuring 18 inches each.
Four colors—Red, Grey, Blue, and Black—will be offered for the motorcycle.
The section that would typically house the engine is totally covered, and it looks like the battery is located there. The electric motor is mounted to the back wheel hub. But the LED headlights and taillights, digital instrument panel, three ride modes (Drive, Cross Over, and Thrill), remote start, and regenerative braking deserve special mention.
The business claims that the 3 kWh battery in the electric motorcycle provides it the ARAI-claimed range of 135 km per charge. At 60 kmph, the electric motor produces 40 Nm of torque and 3 kW (4 bhp) of maximum power.
The business claims that the sprint to 60 kmph takes 10 seconds and the time from 0 to 40 kmph is 5 seconds. The front disc brake and the rear drum brake are used for stopping power.
A 60 V 10A CAN charger can charge a battery from 20% to 80% in 3 hours, whereas the normal CC-CV portable charger tops it off in 6 hours. A cargo of up to 140 kg can be carried by the motorcycle, which has a kerb weight of 101 kg.
