Honda unveiled EM1 Electric Scooter at 2022 EICMA

November 9, 2022

Honda is the most trusted brand for two-wheelers in India and the number of users keeps on increasing. To align with its global strategy, Honda released a new e-vehicle so that by 2025 it can launch at least 10 electric two-wheelers globally. The new vehicle made its first entry at an EICMA show in Milan, Italy. EM1 is the first two-wheeler of Honda to step foot in the European market. 

The company also talked about the strategy behind this name. Let’s find it out in the official statement made by the company. ‘EM’ stands for electric moped and it is targeted at young buyers who want a compact, light, and easy-to-ride urban runabout.

Technical specifications of Honda EM1

Exterior: The scooter’s boxy and angular form lines give it a far simpler appearance than the contemporary, robotic-looking electric scooters. 
Range: The EM1 is claimed to deliver a range of 40km with a single charge. Additionally, the battery pack is detachable, giving the user the ease of charging it at home. It has a maximum speed cap of 50kmph. This means that the vehicle is developed to cover the short distance with swappable battery technology. 
Interior: With a big footboard, an obviously spacious seat, and a rear carrier, it appears that function is more important than aesthetics.
Additional features: According to Honda, this power pack was made to withstand “various temperatures, humidity levels, collisions, and vibrations.”

Further details are still locked in the box, but we hope to get more updates from the company once the vehicle has passed the necessary regulations and is fit to measure roads. It is hoped that we can see the two-wheeler in India after July 2023. 

Other e-vehicles at the event

Apart from EM1, the other two-wheeler at the EICMA 2022, were the CMX1100 Rebel and the CL500 Scrambler. These two are the bike versions launched by Honda. 


The revised CMX1100 Rebel was unaltered technically and even texture-wise at EICMA 2022, but it will have a new paint job named Iridium Grey Metallic. The new CMX1100T model with its hard case panniers(a pair of packs or baskets hung over the rear wheel of a vehicle) and bagger-style “Batwing” half-fairing, is the real star here.

The left and right hard cases on the touring version have storage capacities of 16 and 19 liters, respectively. While barreling down the highway at triple-digit speeds, the fairing should reduce rider strain in addition to improving aerodynamics. The panniers should make it even more practical for those protracted, mile-eating journeys. The identical 1084cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine from the Africa Twin that powers both trims are used. The motor’s 87PS and 98Nm output have been adjusted to fit the Rebel’s cruiser-like demeanor. Both variations will be available with manual and DCT transmissions.


The model’s inspiration was taken from the legendary CLs of the 1960s and 1970s, combining the vintage aesthetic with contemporary technology. It has a spherical headlight that is entirely made of LEDs, a gasoline tank with knee recesses and tank pads, and a few body panels. It has a ribbed single-piece seat and an unusual taillight unit that protrudes from the fender in a rectangular shape. The bike employs a 240mm floating disc with a single-piston caliper and a 310mm floating disc with a two-piston caliper for braking. Additionally, it has dual-channel ABS, which Honda claims is optimized for both road and off-road driving. It rides on alloy wheels that are 19/17 inches in diameter and has dual-sport-like tyres, much like the Honda CB50RS. The bike has a 155mm ground clearance and a seat height of 790mm, but with such a small ground clearance, it wouldn’t be the best for taming trails.

Road Ahead

The future of Honda is yet to unveil fully. We hope to see more such e-vehicles by Honda on the road.
