Flux Motorcycles are spear heading the electric movement into the off road world and their new Primo offers some eye watering looks and performance.
It comes with swappable battery technology rated at 6.7kWh which they claim can be swapped in under a minute. So you can have one on recharge whilst you’re out and about ripping up the dirt.
“The 400V system offers high power with unprecedented power density at only 34kg, without needing exotic materials. Every component was designed with weight saving in mind, even the circuit boards.
Each cell has a direct thermal connection to the outside for optimal cooling and the chemistry is specific for high discharges. The result is a pack that can handle going harder and longer than the competition.
The custom ultralight battery management system takes care of it all. The temperature is monitored by 15 probes and each cell’s voltage is under control, you just plug it in and forget about it”
It has a high performance powertrain: High efficiency, high RPM motor, single speed 2-stage transmission.
“85hp of peak electrical power will move you in front of any 450 out there and 750Nm of wheel torque will push anything out of the way.
High voltage means less current, less current means less heat. Our motor boasts a 95% efficiency and water cooling for the motor and inverter ensures optimal operation in all conditions.
The high revving motor weighs only 7.7kg and uses an advanced 2-stage geared reduction. Inspired from F1, the straight cut gears feature a special tooth profile and dedicated treatment, reducing losses and weight, while enabling correct sprocket position”
The Primo also comes with in phone app smart connectivity to tailor the bike set up to your specs too:
“Limitless personalization from moped power to face bending full power via smartphone connection. With 6 different parameters, you can control not only how much power you have, but where and when you want it. You can also prepare personal maps, to have ready for any riding condition.
Accelerometers, gyros, wheels speeds, vibration, GPS and a powerful processor. The Primo is a technological platform, paving the way for development of algorithms, which will improve lap times, safety, enable special modes and learn riders habits.
Now your dirtbike features theft protection, you can lock it with a PIN code via smartphone”
The Primo also comes with special features like a reverse button to help you back up out of sticky situations. Active regenerative braking – Charging the battery on pure electrical braking, giving you a range boost. It also has a virtual clutch – Our digital clutch lever will help you in those whiskey throttle moments, without worrying about discs, springs, baskets and fade
The chassis optimises performance with a low centre of gravity – Our unique cell placement brings the center of gravity very low, making the bike as agile as a 2-stroke and minimizing load transfer on braking and accelerating.
Perimetral Aluminium Frame-The championship winning platform from HM Moto (now Vent Moto) has been engineered by Flux Performance to optimally integrate the electric drive, while maintaining geometry and flex characteristics. The battery is protected from frontal impact by the lower cradle.
Rear Under Control – A custom cast swingarm and dedicated linkage complete the geometry to make your ride fast & safe.
It is set up with KYB rear Suspension-KYB 48mm front suspension with custom settings for maximum plush & familiarity. For the front it has-Premium Öhlins TTX shock with twin tube technology, acting fast on small bumps, but sustained on big impacts, offering unparalleled traction & stability.
