Tork Motorcycles introduces India’s First Electric Bike T6X and is available for pre-booking at the company’s website- www.torkmotorcycles.com for a price of Rs. 1,24,999/-.
Kapil Shelke, co-founder of Tork Motorcycles says that the T6X is ideal for those who choose city riding and the bike can be equivalent to a 200cc petrol-powered motorcycle. With the immediate surge of torque available right from the word go, the T6X promises to be quick off the line. The motorcycle also falls under the central government’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles) initiative and is eligible for subsidies. The power on the Tork T6X comes from an 6 kW (8 bhp) electric motor paired to an automatic transmission. The bike gets telescopic front forks and a monoshock suspension setup at the rear, while braking power comes from discs at the front and rear and Tork says the bike will also come with ABS when it goes on sale.
The bike boasts of a range of 500 km on a single charge courtesy of the lithium-ion batteries, the only component that has been imported on the bike and can be charged via a 15 Amp socket with 80 per cent charge available in one hour. Tork has declared that the batteries are good to go for 1000 charging cycles, which equates to around 1 lakh kilometres in ideal conditions. T6X also gets the company’s TIROS (Tork Intuitive Response System), a cloud system that can be updated easily and allows the company to keep a tab on the bike and all its service necessities remotely.
