This article will contain everything that you might be looking for. Such as the price of the bike, range, launch date, performance, and everything else.

So, without any further ado, let’s get started –

Emote Electric Surge 10K

At Auto Expo 2020, Tamilnadu-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer Emote Electric announced India’s first geared electric motorcycle.

The best thing about Surge 10K is that despite being a mid-budget segment motorcycle, it has a sportier design and powerful performance.

Although the electric motorcycle isn’t out yet for delivery, Emote Electric has started accepting pre-booking of the vehicle. You can pre-book the bike at just Rs 1199, while the Surge 6K can be pre-booked at just Rs 999.

Even though Emote Electric has officially announced the vehicle and has started accepting pre-booking, there is no official clarification of when the delivery will start.

According to some reports, Emote Electric will start the delivery of this electric bike by the end of the second quarter of the year.

Talking about the pricing, Emote Electric Surge 10K would cost around Rs 1,80,000 on-road. However, you will get the FAME-II subsidy with the bike. Moreover, it will drastically reduce the price of the bike to Rs 1,35,000 on-road.

Emote Electric Surge 10K also comes with two additional optional battery bays. You can use these bays to add more battery packs that will help you enhance the total riding range of the vehicle.

However, you have to pay extra money for the battery packs. The price for these additional battery packs is yet to be disclosed. But they will cost you somewhere between Rs 40-60K each.

Emote Electric Surge 10K Battery Range and Charging Time

Emote Electric Surge 10K comes with a 3.1 kWh battery pack that gives a range of around 150 KM/charge. This is a power-dense lithium-ion battery pack of 77.7v 40 AH capacity.

This battery supports fast charging and takes around 30 minutes to charge from 0 to 80% using an express fast charger.

However, if you use a regular charger with a 15 A home socket, this may take around 3.5-4 hours to charge this battery fully.

The best thing about the bike is that it comes with a total number of three battery bays. It allows you to add up to three battery packs at a time.

This will extend the total range of this bike to 450 KM/charge, which is quite impressive. This is even the most impressive thing about Emote Electric Surge 10K.

However, installing three battery packs on this electric bike will additionally cost you more than Rs 1 lakh. Plus, three battery packs will make this electric bike a bit heavy. Therefore, you will definitely notice some differences in the performance part.

If you are showing interest in this bike because it comes with the ability to extend the total range, we recommend doing that only during long rides. For daily city commute, avoid using additional battery packs.

Emote Electric Surge 10K Performance 

Emote Electric Surge 10K is India’s first electric geared motorcycle and delivers really powerful performance.

It comes with a four-speed wide ratio gearbox with three different drive modes – Distance, Balanced, and Performance. The gearbox is semi-automatic and doesn’t require a clutch.

This electric geared motorcycle features a 10 kWh electric motor. It can produce the peak torque of 28 Nm at 2800 RPM. This motor delivers sufficient power to hit a top speed of up to 120 Kmph.

Moreover, it accelerates from 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds. Plus, the bike weighs around 120 KGs, and the weight is equally distributed, providing you a very stable performance during high speed.

However, to achieve these numbers, you have to ride your motorcycle in Performance driving mode. This will significantly reduce the riding range.

For braking, Surge 10K boasts a 300 mm twin pot disc in front and a 230 mm single pot disc in the rear. Surge 10K lacks ABS and, instead of that, features CBS, aka combined braking system.

CBS works really great for city traffic. But considering that this bike can hit a top speed of 120 KMPH. I feel that it should come with ABS, at least for front brakes for additional safety.

However, we also have to keep in mind that Surge 10K is a budget segment bike. Now, adding ABS would have significantly increased its overall price.

Instead of offering ABS by default, Emote Electric could have given buyers an option to pick the ABS variant by paying some extra bucks.

Emote Electric Surge 10K Design and Build

The design of the bike looks quite unique, all because of its boxy styling. Emote has done a fantastic job in making this bike look quite sporty, but it looks pretty boring to me. The prototype model that we saw doesn’t have that many curves, and to be frank, it looks like it is made of cardboard.

However, the design is completely subjective, and if you like it, you can definitely go for it.

However, I am quite impressed with the build of this bike. It houses a high-strength trellis chassis underneath, paired with Upside Down Telescopic suspension in front and Horizontal Unilink Monoshock suspension in the rear.

The combination of the chassis and the suspension provides you with a quite stable performance at higher speeds.

Surge 10K houses a 110/80 R17 Radial tire in front and a 140/70 R17 Radial tire in the rear. These both are low rolling resistance tires that will give you great confidence for cornering.

Closing Comments

There you have it – a detailed review of the Surge 10K bike.

To sum up this review, I would say that Surge 10K is really a great electric bike. In my opinion, this is the best you can get under a price range of Rs 1,40,000 on-road, especially in terms of performance and range.

Plus, it is packed with dozens of cool features such as advanced and super accurate telemetry 4G connectivity, HD instrumental console, and more.

Also, we cannot overlook the fact that the build of this bike is quite sturdy for Indian road conditions. The only thing I wouldn’t say I liked much was the design of the bike. However, the design is a very subjective thing. Plus, the bike’s design isn’t that bad to be considered a deal-breaker.
