Matter Energy, a newly formed start-up of electric two-wheelers, have launched their first offering in the Indian two-wheeler market.
In order to inspire India’s 15 million motorcycle owners to move toward a beautiful future that is connected, green, and supported by cutting-edge technology, this motorcycle has been created and engineered from the ground up, perfected for trails and roads, with a consumer-centric product development approach concentrated on safety, security, dependability, and performance.
It is also the first liquid-cooled, geared electric two-wheeler in India. The battery pack has several patented technologies, including the Integrated Intelligent Thermal Management System (IITMS), which employs ground-breaking active liquid cooling technology to guarantee optimum performance of all the pack components.
The MatterEnergy 1.0, an integrated 5-kWh power pack with great energy density, powers the motorcycle. The Power Pack is an integrated device that houses the battery,battery management system (BMS), the Drive Train Unit (DTU), power conversion modules, and other protection systems, was created with Indian conditions in mind.
Matter have created the MatterDrive 1.0, a ground-breaking propulsion system that combines an electric motor with the Matter Hypershift manual four-speed gearbox which is expected to give the rider complete control over the power delivery.
Even when the motorcycle is not moving, the patented liquid-cooling technology that simultaneously cools the rotor and stator allows for faster heat removal from the electric motor. In order to make sure that the drivetrain not only complies with the ever-changing strict standards for performance and safety like AIS 041 and IP65 but is also capable of meeting extreme performance requirements, it has also undergone extensive testing and validation at Matter’s cutting-edge facility.
Through a single connector, the motorcycle can be charged quickly as well as conventionally. A standard on-board 1-kW charger, called MatterCharge 1.0, is included in the motorcycle and allows for flexible and convenient charging at any 5A, three-pin plug connection. The on-board charger has an overcharge protection feature and can fully charge the motorcycle in under five hours.
The motorbike is designed to inspire emotion – defined by a sizeable, yet sleek silhouette that is familiar yet distinctive in form factor with sculpted surfaces, crafted engineering components and awe-inspiring details. The bi-functional LED projector headlamp, split LED tail-lamp, body-integrated front turn signals, a translucent shroud, an exposed spinner attached to the motor are mesmerizing details that embody a progressive design language for Matter’s motorbike. The vehicle also packs convenient utility elements such as a storage space with built-in lights and a smart mobile charging port.
The cutting-edge processor, 4G connectivity, and Android software power the touch-enabled seven-inch instrument cluster, which runs the user-friendly interface that gives the rider access to all the information they require, including speed, gear position, riding mode, navigation, media, call control, and other advanced features that have never been seen in a motorcycle before. The connected smartphone application allows for seamless integration with the vehicle controls, including remote lock/unlock, geofencing, live location tracking, and vehicle health monitoring. Using a passive keyless entry technology and proximity-based key fob, the rider can lock or unlock the bike just by walking up to it.
The front and rear disc brakes with ABS, along with the bike’s big tyres, help in safe braking while also providing excellent traction and road grip. The bike makes no compromises when it comes to safety. All of these parts are combined into a single, distinctive unit by the innovative twin-cradle frame which also provides best-in-class ride quality, riding dynamics, and cornering performance. The bike will be produced at the Ahmedabad facility and sold across all of India’s major cities.
