India’s First Electric Motorcycle Is the Tork T6X

Indian manufacturer Tork has released its new baby in the world. The T6X machine is purely electric, and it represents the company’s first such product. Not to mention it’s also the first electric motorcycle to come out of India.

Tork claims its new T6X offers a range of 100 km (62 miles) on a full battery and a cruising speed of 100 km/h (62 mph). The electric motor also offers 26 Nm (19 lb-ft) of twist from a stand still.

Not bad for a bike that will mostly be used around busy city streets. It’s versatility is also increased by the lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged to 80% in just one hour.

Guess the T6X would make a great tool for bike sharing programs. It’s also simple to use, needs minimum maintenance, offers enough space to take in a full helmet under the tank and also features some smartphone integration features.

"Powering the T6X is our signature TIROS intelligence system which will enable the rider to easily switch between customizable ride modes adjusting power delivery,” founder and director Kapil Shelke said. “The motorcycle can be tuned anywhere from sporty maverick to comfortable eco-cruiser at the touch of a button. TIROS also updates and incorporates new features automatically via the cloud, making the Tork T6X truly the smartest motorcycle on the road."

The T6X features a 4.3-ich touch screen dashboard which includes navigation, cloud connectivity, trip, and vehicle info as well as cloud connectivity through your smartphone thanks to the Tork app.

Tork isn’t wasting time, and the company has already set up six charging points in Pune, aiming to reach 100 by December to aid with sales of the new T6X. The model will be available in Pune, Bangalore and Delhi at first, with a price tag of INR 1,24,999 ($1,878 or €1,673).
