TorkT6X, India’s only All Electric Motorcycle was recently unveiled by Tork Motorcycles, a pune based bike manufacturer. After seven years of immense research and development, the company seems to be shining at the pinnacle with the production of this new motorbike.
Targeted at the urban commuters, Tork motors claims that the T6X replicates a 200cc petrol motorcycle and promises a range of 100 kms on a full charge. The full charge approximately takes around 2 hrs on a 15A socket. The battery life is expected to last around one lakh kilometres approximately.
The T6X comes fitted with an 8bhp electric motor mated to an automatic transmission which delivers an instant torque as soon as the ignition turns on and is set to go. The bike is equipped with telescopic front forks and monoscopic suspension at its rear. The braking power comes from the front and rear discs.
Tork T6X is not just a first of its kind motorbike, but also comes loaded with plenty of first in segment features. It works on the company’s popular TIROS (Tork Intuitive Response Operating System) which lets the company remain connected with you to offer the best of services. This cloud operating system gets updated over the air and keeps adding more features on each updation. It also allows you to select your driving modes and thereby alters the speed levels accordingly.
T6x has a digital instrument cluster with navigation system and smartphone integration. Tork has loaded the T6x with a superior range of advanced safety features which essentially includes the ABS (Anti Braking System) and DRLs (Day time running lamps). T6x will be available initially in black and white shade.
The rate of lithium having gone down is said to have helped the company keep the launch pricing of the T6X at Rs.1, 24,999. Tork Motorcycles has started accepting prebookings online without any deposit amount and plans to start delivering vehicles by next year.

Ather Energy, a startup company by two IIT graduates founded in the year 2013, has launched the much anticipated electric scooters, Ather 340 and Ather 450 in India. Both the scooters are identical to each other in their looks and would be the most expensive compared to other scooters in the segment.
The Kawasaki ninja is probably the first name to utter when it comes to performance racing bikes. The company stands by its promises and never fails to come up with their fantastic range of motorcycles every year.
Royal Enfield had updated engines on their two best-selling models,Bullet 500 and the Continental GT in the European Market. Now they have launched the 2017 Classic 500 and the Himalayan too with an updated Euro-IV compliant engine. The Eicher Motors owned company is strengthening its global portfolio with updated models and an increasing number of showrooms worldwide.
Royal Enfield motorcycles powered by BS-IV engines are now available in India. The entire lineup is said to have received the engine upgrades with AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature (both being stringent norms), even though no official statement has been released by the company yet. According to reports from financial express, Electra 350 was spotted already on sale at one of the company dealerships with updated features as the BS-IV engine and AHO. Other models too are believed to go on sale with the same upgrades in another week, as April 1st, 2017 is the deadline for these norms to be implemented on all motor vehicles in India. The prices have been hiked for the new range of BS-IV motorcycles from Royal Enfield.
Honda launched the first scooter in India, Activa 125cc with an engine that complies with BS-IV norms. The New Activa also becomes the first scooter to get an AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature, which is about to be mandatory on all vehicles in India from April 1st, 2017 as part of safety regulations. Not many cosmetic updates have been provided on this best seller. However, few prominent tweaks are seen like the new pair of LED positioning lamps that fit perfectly into the chrome apron on the front, a protuberant Honda badge and also a mobile charging socket.
Yamaha launched its latest offering in the FZ series named FZ 25 as a gentle step towards the booming 250cc bike segment. Comfortably placed between the YZF R15 version 2.0 and YZF R3, this motorcycle marks Yamaha’s entry into the performance bike segment which is being dominated by giants like Royal Enfield, KTM and Bajaj Auto. The bike was initially named as FZ 250, but later the company decided to dump the 0 and name it FZ 25.
