Matter Electric Motorcycle - Top 5 Things To Know

Matter, an Ahmedabad-based EV startup revealed its first electric motorcycle yesterday. The Matter electric motorcycle has quite a few distinct features.

Let's take a look at the top 5 things you need to know about the Matter electric motorcycle...

1 - The Manual Gearbox

The Matter motorbike generates power like every other EV with the help of an electric motor. However, unlike every other electric motorcycle in the Indian market today, the Matter electric bike features a 4-speed manual gearbox.

Matter claims that its 4-speed sequential Hypershift gearbox provides complete control of the power delivery to the rider. The company claims that the proprietary sequential manual gearbox helps provide consistent power delivery, flat torque, and efficiency.

2 - Liquid Cooled Integrated Power Pack

Matter's in-house developed integrated power pack has been developed with Indian conditions in mind. Dubbed matterEnergy 1.0, this integrated unit houses the battery pack, battery management system, drivetrain unit, power conversion modules and other protection systems.

The entire unit features liquid cooling to help keep temperatures down to ensure the smooth running of the Matter motorcycle at all times.

3) Powerful Motor & Power-Dense Battery Pack

An energy-dense 5kWh battery pack that helps the electric bike deliver a range of up to 150 kilometres on a single charge powers the Matter electric motorcycle.

The battery pack powers a single electric motor that produces 10.5kW of peak power (14bhp) and 520Nm of wheel torque.

4) Easy Charging

The Matter electric motorcycle supports both normal and fast charging through a common connector. Owners can charge the Matter motorbike using a standard 5A, 3-pin plug that can be found in every home. Charging time when plugged into a household plug point is claimed to be under 5 hours.

5) Feature-Packed Bike

The Matter electric motorcycle sports a 7-inch touchscreen display that offers 4G and Bluetooth connectivity and runs on Android. This display gives the rider all the info needed and can also be used to control calls and media as well as for navigation.

The Matter motorcycle also gets its own connected app with support for remote lock/unlock, geo-fencing, live location tracking, vehicle health monitoring, personalised ride statistics, charging status, push navigation and more. The Matter electric motorcycle also gets a passive keyless entry system.

Thoughts About The Matter Electric Motorcycle

The Matter electric motorcycle looks set to deliver quite a shock to the system with its 4-speed manual gearbox. Whether that and all the other features of the bike attract customers to the Matter Electric motorcycle is something we'll only get to know when it actually starts hitting the streets.
