Matter has introduced its Aera electric motorcycle in two variants, priced at ₹1.74 lakh and ₹1.84 lakh (ex-showroom, post-revised FAME subsidy). Both models feature a 10 kW (13.4 bhp) electric motor with a 0-60 kmph sprint time of six seconds and a range of 125 km on a single charge. The motorcycles boast a 7-inch touchscreen console for navigation, music, and calls.
Matter emphasizes convenience by enabling charging through any 5-amp socket. The company anticipates a running cost of 25 paise per km.
Mohal Lalbhai, Matter’s Group CEO and Founder expressed excitement about the forthcoming production and delivery phase, highlighting the brand’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. Matter plans to initiate production at its plant with a capacity of 60,000 units annually, with potential expansion to 120,000 units based on demand.
Additionally, the company aims to establish a second manufacturing facility by 2025, projecting an annual capacity of 100,000 units. Despite Aera being Matter’s inaugural electric offering, the company plans to introduce two more electric bikes and display executive models based on the M2 platform at the 2023 Auto Expo.
The upcoming models are expected to be more affordable and diverse, catering to a broader market.
