† Tork T6X electric motorcycle spied
– Looks completely ready for production
– Official launch could be early 2022
Pune-based Tork Motors is expected to debut in the Indian electric two-wheeler market in 2017. However, the company seems to be way behind schedule and we’ve only seen test mules of their T6X electric motorcycle so far. In a recent update, another test unit of the Tork T6X electric bike has been spied on.
The last time T6X was spotted was in March 2020. The bike looked almost ready for production, but all body panels and battery pack were fully camouflaged. This time, however, the electric bike was only partially covered and seemed much closer to production than last time.
The bike’s design is slightly different from the previously spotted mule. The headlight is a triangular unit, similar to that of the Pulsar NS 200. The center section consists of a muscular fuel tank-like panel that extends to the tail, appearing as a single unit. Below the ‘fuel tank’ is an angular panel on either side, similar to the radiator cap on ICE motorcycles. The extra sportiness comes from a split seat and a split handle for the duo seat.
The Tork T6X gets high-end features such as all-round LED lighting and a fully digital instrument panel. It will also come as no surprise to see turn-by-turn navigation and other Bluetooth-based features. The exact battery and motor specifications of the bike are not yet known. However, the company once said the bike will feature a motor based on Axial Flux technology, which has peak efficiency between 90-96 percent and contributes to longer life and smaller battery size.
Looking at the progress made with the T6X, we expect Tork to launch the electric motorcycle in the first half of 2022. In terms of price, it will be placed on the premium side, somewhere north of Rs 1.25 lakh.
