Tork Motorcycles is the first ever Indian company to manufacture an all-electric motorcycle in the T6X. It recently unveiled the T6X at an event in Bengaluru and it is a fine-looking motorcycle too. What is surprising is the curiosity that it has generated amongst people. The company says that in less than 24 hours of the unveiling, more than 1,000 pre-bookings have been made on its website. Before you misunderstand, these are just pre-bookings, which can nbe done for free.
Watch the First Look of Tork T6X after the jump:
The company will be looking to build a nice rapport with the potential customers, make them more informed about the T6X and its advantages over a conventional motorcycle in an urban scenario, offer them test rides at their convenience and then, if the interested person is convinced, he/she can pay the booking amount. So in case you are interested in knowing more about the Tork T6X, we suggest you log on to the company's website and get a pre-booking done. Also, the deliveries for the motorcycle will begin only in the next year as the homologation process in underway.
Just to refresh your memory, the Tork T6X has been priced at ₹ 1.25 lakh and gets its power from a 6kW electric motor (equal to 8bhp roughly) and is mated to an automatic transmission. It also gets disc brakes and will be equipped with ABS once it is on sale. It will ride for almost 100km on a single charge and can be charged till 80 per cent in just one hour. This should take care of all daily commutes inside the city. It can reach a maximum of 100 km/h. Also, you would be surprised to know that it took the company 7 years to get the T6X ready for sale. There were certain people associated with the R&D, who are Isle of Man TT veterans as well.
Tork Motorcycles is also coming up with a plant in Chakan, Pune which will take care of all the manufacturing processes. The motorcycle will be first introduced in Pune, Bengaluru and Delhi in the first phase of nationwide sales and later spread to more cities.
