The Luna moped made by Kinetic, which hit the Indian roads in the 90s, is still valued by many. At that time this two-wheeler had a noisy engine but this time it will run silently. Because after 23 long years, it made a comeback in the Indian market with an electric avatar. The new name is E-Luna. It will be available in two variants – X1 trim and X2 trim. Kinetic Green has priced them at Tk 69,990 and Tk 74,990 respectively (ex-showroom). As an e-moped it is quite cheap.
Kinetic E-Luna has been launched in India
The new Kinetic E-Luna is built entirely on indigenous technology. This moped made for the masses has been kept at a low price keeping in mind that it reaches the reach of a large number of buyers. The E-Luna will ride on a dual tubular high strength steel chassis. As a result, you can move smoothly on any kind of road. It is suitable for both personal and commercial use. The design will bring back memories of the nineties.
Electric Luna has a rear seat opening system to carry goods if needed. The company says it can run with a weight of 150 kg. A 2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is present to provide the power to move forward, which Kinetic Green claims can run for 110 km (tested range) on a full charge. The company is also planning to launch 1.7 and 3 kWh battery pack options later. The most powerful 3kWh model can run 150km on a full charge.
The company feels that Luna will be quite popular in small towns as well as villages. It is available in five color options – Red, Blue, Yellow, Green and Black. The body panels are all-black, with only the thin metal tubes across the body showing contrasting colors. The organization claims that it will cost only 10 paisa electricity to drive 1 km. It will take only 500 rupees to book. It can also be purchased online from Flipkart or Amazon. It can also be brought home with monthly installments of just Rs 2,000.
The Kinetic E-Luna comes with a 2.2 kW BLDC hub motor. Which will help to increase the maximum speed of 50 km per hour. According to company sources, the battery, motor and controller are each IP67 rated, so they will not be damaged even if they are submerged in water for a certain period of time. The battery will be fully charged in four hours.
Despite its sleek appearance, the Luna Electric is not far behind in features. It features digital instrument console with real time DTE indicator. Other features include combi braking, USB charging port, three riding modes and side stand sensor. The Kinetic E-Luna will ride on telescopic front forks and 16-inch wire spoke wheels.
