The average charged track multiplicity and the normalised distribution of the scaled momentum, xp, of charged final state hadrons are measured in deep-inelastic ep scattering at high Q2 in the Breit frame of reference. The analysis covers the range of photon virtuality . Compared with previous results presented by HERA experiments this analysis has a significantly higher statistical precision and extends the phase space to higher Q2 and to the full range of xp. The results are compared with e+e− annihilation data and with various calculations based on perturbative QCD using different models of the hadronisation process.
