Tork Motorcycles might be camouflaged among the bigger units dotting the bylanes of the MIDC industrial cluster in Bhosari near Pune, but there’s no hiding the T6X — on course to become India’s first bike that runs on a 20-kg plus lithium-ion battery pack and deliver speeds upwards of 75 kmph. “Instead of being built ground-up, electric two wheelers in the country so far are just remakes of existing two-wheeler frames, patched with an electric motor,” says founder Kapil Shelke, who is trying to change this with the rugged, powerful beast. While its predecessor T4X could clock 0 to 100 kmph in less than nine seconds, Shelke is mum on the details of its sixth prototype. “It won’t be a letdown, but I can’t reveal much before the final tests,” he adds.
