The Tork T6X is the first production electric motorcycle to be launched in the Indian market. Featuring several first in class features, the T6X is pegged as an eco-friendly alternative to petrol-powered commuter motorcycles.
The Tork T6X is built around a trellis frame. It is propelled by a brushless 6kW motor rated at 27Nm of torque, powered by lithium ion batteries. On a full charge, the T6X can cover 100 kilometres. The battery can be charged to 80 per cent of its capacity in just 60 minutes. The T6X gets a 267mm disc brake at the front and a 220mm disc brake in the rear. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.
Tork hasn’t skimped on the features list either. The T6X comes equipped with a TFT digital touch screen console, mobile charger, GPS navigation, anti-theft system and DRLs. The T6X also gets an anti-theft mechanism.
The T6X isn't the first of the company’s enterprises, as Tork had previously also rolled out a Yamaha FZ prototype retrofitted with an electric motor, though it failed to make a mark in the Indian market. The T6X though, has been developed from the ground-up as a brand new product. The T6X is manufactured in the company’s facility in Pune. It competes with conventional petrol powered motorcycles like the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, KTM Duke 200 and the Bajaj Pulsar AS200.
