Matter Aera, the first-ever all-electric motorcycle with a manual transmission in India, has been grabbing attention even before its sales begin officially. After opening its pre-bookings on May 17th at a starting price of Rs 1.74 lakh, Matter Energy has now hiked the prices of the motorcycle by Rs 30,000.
The Matter Aera electric motorcycle is available in two variants – Aera 5000 and Aera 5000+. While the Aera 5000 was launched with a price of Rs 1.44 lakh, the Aera 5000+ arrived at Rs 1.54 lakh. With the new price hikes, the Aera 5000 and Aera 5000+ are now priced at Rs 1.74 lakh and Rs 1.84 lakh, both prices ex-showroom.
However, you can buy the Aera at the older prices, provided you pre-book the motorcycle before June 6th. The price hikes introduced for the Matter Aera are in the wake of a reduction in FAME-II incentives for electric two-wheelers. Owing to this, all the electric scooters and motorcycles will become more expensive from June 1st.
Both variants – Aera 5000 and Aera 5000+–comewith the same powertrain and battery setups. However, for the premium it commands, the Aera 5000+ has additional features like Bluetooth connectivity, telematics and a charging smart port.
