India is the future of the world for electric motorcycles, says Pursang’s founder

Pursang Motorcycles, the Spanish electric motorcycle maker, will start production of its first electric motorcycle, Pursang E-Track in August 2020 with delivery set to start from the end of September 2020 in Europe.

Originally in production from 1967 to 1984, the Spanish electric motorcycle is an effort to reboot the regionally popular brand with a modern twist.

In an exclusive interaction with ElectricVehicleWeb.in, Mr Oriol Renart, CMO, Pursang Motorcycles has confirmed the start of production of the E-Track motorcycle. He also said that the price of the E-Track will be € 12,700, while there will be a special edition (Founder’s Edition) with carbon finishes priced at € 13,700 including taxes.

Pursang is looking to focus their strategy on Europe in 2021 before looking to sell on other continents, which is expected in 2022. The company would in the future look for a distributor in India, and Mr Renart believes that India is the future of the world for electric motorcycles. He has also confirmed that Pursang has a planned production of 400 motorcycles for 2021, most of which have already received pre-orders from different dealers in Europe.

Pursang unveiled the production version of the E-Track motorcycle at the beginning of 2020. The E-Track is powered by a triple-battery pack each with 2.4 kWh per unit, taking the total energy capacity to 7.2 kWh. An 11 kW Bosch motor drives the motorcycle up to a maximum speed of 120 km/h. The complete battery pack, which can be charged in six hours to full capacity, offers a range of up to 140 km in a single charge. The E-Track is built on Tubular Chrome-Molybdenum frame and is fitted with 41 mm fork, adjustable shock absorber, 320 mm front and 240 mm rear floating disc brakes, 18-inch wheels with Pirelli Scorpio tyres.

Pursang showcased another electric motorcycle, E-Street, but the bike is yet to be listed on the company’s website. The E-Street is powered by an 8 kW motor and dual-battery pack with a total capacity of 4.8 kWh. This bike offers a range of up to 100 km per charge and can go up to a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Mr Renart has confirmed that Pursang is focused on the E-Track for now and the pre-orders received are for the E-Track only. While the E-Street will be launched, a launch date is not yet set.
