AFT is designed to deliver the power and torque required by 100cc+ two-wheelers at just 48V-120V. It’s liquid-cooled which means it has a significantly higher continuous power than air-cooled e-motors in the hot and humid Indian ambient temperatures. They also require minimal maintenance, leading to a decrease in the cost of ownership. 

Commenting on the new partnership, Wicher Kist, Chief Executive Officer at Saietta Group, said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Padmini as we introduce our axial-flux motor technology to the strategically important Indian market. The Indian two, three and four wheel mobility market is at an important crossroads. It’s time for the democratisation of zero-emissions mobility in India, starting with their most popular form of mobility – motorbikes and scooters.

“Our axial-flux technology offers a winning combination of class-leading performance at the price required for the Indian market and is exceptionally durable and robust. This makes the AFT electric motors the go-to zero-emissions powertrain for 100cc+ motorbikes which is the next sector that will go electric in India.

Padmini’s customer base includes two-wheeler OEMs like Hero MotorCorp, TVS, Bajaj Auto and Royal Enfield.

Managing Director and Founder of Padmini VNA Kabir Bhandari said, “We are super excited to bring our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and with the Saietta AFT motors we intend to develop an affordable and scalable ecosystem that will accelerate the adoption of electric mobility.”
