Bengaluru-based electric mobility startup Orxa Energies announced the opening of registrations for track days of their flagship product, the Mantis. Set to begin in the first quarter of 2023, it will bring together bikers to try the vehicle and gauge its capabilities ahead of its launch.

Orxa Energies introduced its track days concept at IBW 2022, experiencing an overwhelming interest and set of registrations to experience the electric performance street bike. The Mantis also guarantees a power-packed experience and offers a range of 200 km in city speeds. It also gets a 9 kWh battery capacity, a powerful 28-kW liquid-cooled motor, and ride-by-wire tech developed in-house.

‘Since the Mantis was first unveiled at IBW in 2019, the bike has undergone several rides to validate its capabilities. One such ride was the record-breaking Electric Bharatmala that we undertook earlier this year which was the biggest validation we received to make our Mantis market ready. The real-world data, in-depth insights on various riding environments, and usage patterns helped us fine-tune the Mantis as we gear up for launch next year,’ said Prajwal Sabnis, Co-Founder of Orxa Energies.

‘It is the continuous feedback from riders that have helped us learn, evolve and make the Mantis market ready. We stand firm in our belief that riders should be able to try the bike before investing in it and our track days will provide the space for riders to experience an electric motorcycle in natural conditions,’ added Ranjita Ravi, Co-Founder of Orxa Energies.
