While India has already seen its first electric car, those who prefer two wheels need not be disappointed either as Pune-based electric bike maker Tork Motorcycles has unveiled India’s first all-electric motorcycle – T6X.
The electric motorcycle has been in the news for a while now being the only one-of-its-kind in India and has been priced at ₹ 1,24,999 (ex-showroom, introductory). 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.
