 *** Note : Final outer Body(fairing) design will be Revealed at a later stage ,And it will Be Really Beautiful***

"Our Vision Is To Build The Most Affordable And Reliable Electric Super-Bike In The World That Beats Petrol Powered Motorbikes In Their Own Field"

Visit Our Official Website MANKAMEMOTORS.COM

Introduction :

        We are a Indian team of Engineers, developing what will be India's first electric Sportbike named the  EP-1, The electric Sport bike will be comparable to 600-650 cc motorbikes with internal combustion engines in terms of performance, with a top speed of 250 km/h  The bike will run more than 500 km on a single charge

      We have built everything including the controller and other electronics and we are about to build the huge battery module, but we are out of funds as we have bootstrapped everything ourselves till now,

Please do contribute to complete the Motorcycle project, in return you will be added as a contributor on our website

even a contribution of 1000 Rs ($15)  would help us a long way, 

The funds will be used to,
- build 40 24V 26AH battery modules
- build and develop instrument cluster ui
- Machining costs and 3d printing costs
- get the arm computer for the Linux control board
- build the custom frame from scratch
- build body panels
Will be showcased at an Ev expo in India by the end of this year or first quarter of next year to showcase, our BMS, Main controller, and other motorcycle capabilities

We are using because GoFundMe or Kickstarter is not available in India

First Electric Burnout Test

First Motor spin Test

In the Video the bike is Running at no load conditions for testing at low power (2 % of total power), with

• DC input to the controller was set at 36 volts and was pulling 11 amps at full throttle on no load conditions with only the wheel spinning, the motor has the capability to run with a voltage range of 24 volts to 96 volts, max 300 amps is at full throttle and at full load giving 80-90 Nm. continuous power is rated at 12 Kw because its liquid cooled

• Output RPM to wheel set at 7500 with 2 speed active Gear box

Host Test bike = CBR-1000RR

• Tyres
       o Front : 120/17
       o Rear : 190/17
• Frame : Cast Aluminum
                 Ohlins Suspension
• Max Range: 480 Km
• Max speed : 180 – 230 kph
The combination of lightning fast acceleration and aerodynamic bodywork make for a fearsome sport bike.

An Amazing Liquid Cooled 18.4 KWh Battery-Pack

A combination of High Density cells make up the entire Battery-Pack, With dedicated Matrix BMS system to monitor and control individual cells providing high levels of safety and efficiency

More Than 500 Km* On A Single Charge  
*A total Range of 480 Kilometers on a full charge, at 70 Km/h on the highway and a range of 500 Km ~ 550 Km in the City with Active Regenerative braking

251 Km/H To 0 Km/H
The braking system consists of dual 320mm front and 245 mm rear disks with brembo calipers, reinforced with dual-channel intelligent ABS and traction control with Machine Learning developed in-house.
