Introducing Orxa Mantis: A Revolutionary Electric Motorcycle

Orxa revolutionizes the two-wheeler industry with the introduction of the new Mantis, setting a new benchmark as the lightest bike of its class to be manufactured in India. The in-house development of this groundbreaking offering has resulted in a bike that weighs just 182 kg (kerb) and boasts an impressive acceleration, covering 0-100 kmph in just 8.9 seconds. A PMS liquid-cooled electric motor powers the Mantis, weighing only 11.5 kg and is tuned for 20.5 kW (27.4 bhp) and 93 Nm of peak torque with a top speed of 135 kmph. Notably, the acceleration has been optimized for city traffic, catering to speeds from 0-20 kmph in 2.7 seconds and 20-60 kmph in 6.2 seconds.

The Launch and Vision

Speaking at the launch event, Dr. Prajwal Sabnis, Co-Founder of Orxa Energies, expressed, “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 kilometres on highways, city roads, and gravel tracks across the country.”

Commitment to Empowerment

Ranjita Ravi, Co-Founder of Orxa Energies, echoed the company’s commitment to empowering the EV community and bikers. “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 prioritized 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.”

Aerospace-Grade Chassis and Strategic Partnerships

The Orxa Mantis is equipped with a fully cast aerospace-grade all-aluminium chassis, a pioneering feature for two-wheelers in India. The e-bike is powered by an 8.9 kWh battery pack, providing a claimed range of 221 km (IDC) on a single charge. Additionally, it features an advanced BMS, dual-redundant thermal management, a 5-inch TFT screen, and Ride-by-Wire. Furthermore, the e-bike boasts a ground clearance of 180 mm.

Many of Orxa’s insights from the aerospace and defence sectors were utilized in the development of the Mantis. The company has strategically partnered with Spare It for after-sales services, Nunam for end-of-life battery buyback services, and Bolt for the use of fast-charging stations for Mantis owners.

Conclusion

In summary, the Orxa Mantis is a game-changer in the Indian two-wheeler market, offering unparalleled performance, cutting-edge technology, and a commitment to empowering the EV community. With its lightweight design, impressive acceleration, and strategic partnerships, the Mantis sets a new standard for electric motorcycles in India, catering to the needs and desires of bikers.
