The Matter Aera was showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo in New Delhi. As per the manufacturer, the new motorbike is more than just a bike that intends to 'disrupt through tech innovations and lead the electric vehicle (EV) transition towards a sustainable future'.
The Aera e-bike "truly represents our philosophy to be an agent of change, challenging the status quo through the tech innovations. We not only sought to create a mobility solution that defies expectations of what an EV can achieve in India but also create the pathways for wider transition to sustainable means of mobility. While achieving it, we would not like to accept that consumers need to pay a hefty premium to bring about the change. And hence, over the last four years, Matter has built a product from scratch, adopting vertical integration as its core principle and incorporating the invaluable feedback of its consumers", stated Mohal Lalbhai, Founder and CEO of Matter Group.
