The new motor is an upgrade to the already existing high-spec motor, both produced by the company itself, making it the only electric scooter OEM to develop or manufacture its own motors in the country. The new motor can produce 72 Nm of torque, which Simple Energy claims is the highest in the segment and has never been achieved on a form factor of this compact size.

The new motor setup allows the scooter to house a large 4.8 kWh battery pack, providing a range of over 200 kilometres. “Upgrade on efficiency and performance of the motor is the key to a perfect EV… We are certain that the end consumer will be thrilled to experience it," said, Suhas Rajkumar, Founder and CEO, of Simple Energy.
