Orxa Energies introduces the “Mantis” electric motorcycle
Right now, the Mantis is the lightest bike in its group, weighing 182 kg. You can get it in two colors: Urban Black and Jungle Grey.
This bike has a 1.3 kW charger and costs Rs 3.6 lakh in Bengaluru. You can start booking it now.
The Mantis can go as fast as 135 km/h and can speed up from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.9 seconds.
When starting from 0-20 km/h, it’s a bit slower, taking 2.7 seconds. This is to make it easier to ride in city traffic. It has a big 8.9 kWh battery and can go up to 221 km on a single charge.
According to a company representative, Orxa Energies’ involvement in the aerospace and defence industries is the source of the technology and features on this bike.
“Our journey began in 2015, and we translated our vision into the first prototype of what would ultimately become the Mantis. Over the last eight years, we have worked extensively to fine-tune the design and engineering of the bike, all of which was tested and subsequently validated by riding it for thousands of km on highways, city roads and gravel tracks across the country.”– said, Prajwal Sabnis, co-founder of Orxa Energies
“As avid EV enthusiasts and bikers ourselves, we’re committed to fostering an ecosystem that empowers both our partners and our customers. With the Mantis, we aim to empower the broader EV community by providing access to essential resources that will drive the ecosystem’s growth and success.”
“Throughout our development journey, we have prioritised the needs and desires of EV users and bikers, ensuring that the Mantis embodies their aspirations. Every step we take is driven by our unwavering vision to create the bike that bikers truly want to ride. The Mantis is truly built by bikers, for bikers,”-added Ranjita Ravi, Co-Founder at Orxa Energies
