The company had showcased a near-production ready version of the motorcycle at the 2020 AutoExpo. eMotion Motors has posted new pictures of motorcycle testing in Coimbatore ahead of launch.
The Surge motorcycle will be available in two variants called 6K and 10K. Both motorcycle were scheduled to launch in September this year. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, the launch timelines have been shifted to early next year.
Once launched, the eMotion Surge will the first geared electric motorcycle in the Indian market. According to the company, the Surge has been under development for the past seven years and completed over 30,000kms of testing.
The Surge 6K is expected to be an entry-level variant with lesser range and power output, which will bare a relatively lower price tag. While the Surge 10K will be the top-of-the-line model offering maximum riding range, performance and will cost slightly higher.
According to eMotion Motors, the electric motor on the 6K variant offers 40 per cent lesser performance as compared to the motor on the 10K model. The Surge 6K can hit a top speed of 100km/h and feature a three-speed transmission. The powertrain produces a peak torque of 20Nm at 2700rpm.
On the other hand, the top-spec Surge 10K variant will reach a top speed of 120km/h and the electric motor will come mated to a superior four-speed transmission. The powertrain produces a higher peak torque of 28Nm at 2800rpm as compared to the 6K model.
Both variants feature the same three 40Ah 72V Li-ion battery pack. As a result, the claimed riding range remains the same at 300 kilometres per charge on both variants. According to the company, the battery pack takes around 3.5 hours to fully charge from a standard charger. Using a DC fast-charger the batteries can completely charge in under 50 minutes.
The motorcycle uses a trellis frame along with a double-sided swing-arm. It uses a chain drive to transfer power from the motor to rear wheels. Suspension duties are handled by USD forks at the front and a mono-shock setup at the rear.
Braking on the motorcycle is done via 300mm disc brake at the front and 230mm unit at the rear. It could feature single-channel ABS at the front as seen by the sensor plate from the images. The company also claims the motorcycle to feature regenerative braking, which will help improve the riding range.
The motorcycle also features a 7.0-inch digital instrument console with navigation and cloud technology for smartphone connectivity. The motorcycle also features geo-tagging, anti-theft, smart key, and reverse mode; among others.

The eMotion Surge claims to offer a maximum riding range of 300 kilometres by the company, which is among the highest in the country. The motorcycle is doing its round of real-world testing and could enter production-phase soon.
