Finally, the covers are coming
off India’s first electric motorcycle which promises to be fast like any 125cc
motorcycle and travels more than 100km on a single charge. The T6X electric
motorcycle will be unveiled by Tork Motorcycles in Bengaluru on Sept 30, 2016.
The T6X is India’s first premium long range powerful electric motorcycle.
Kapil Shelke, Founder and
Director of Tork Motors, will be talking about the T6X, its making and the work
that has gone behind making India’s first long range powerful electric
motorcycle for the connected user.
Production for T6X is expected
to commence by the end of 2016. Though electric two wheeler manufacturers in the
country like Hero Electric and Lohia Auto are into the making to electric
scooters and scootys, these companies have yet to launch an electric motorcycle
in India. Hero Electric showcased its electric motorcycle a few months back but
the bike has yet to be formally launched.
Kapil Shelke is a mechanical
engineer who started his company in 2009 and was funded by several tech
entrepreneurs in their personal capacities. The company initially focussed on
racing their electric bikes that they developed in house in various esteemed
races across the world. These races included the Isle of Man TTX-GP, TTX-GP
Championship and the 400-metre drag race - demo run at Valley Run. Since then
the company started to focus on building the first electric motorcycle. The T6X
will be comparable to a 125cc bike and is expected to have a top speed of 95 kmph.
