EXCLUSIVE: Tork T6X Electric Bike Spied Again
Tork could launch the electric bike next year
- Tork claims the T6X offers a range of 100km, and a 0-80 percent charging time of just one hour.
- The company also claims the bike is engineered to cruise at 100kmph.
- Tork first unveiled the bike back in 2016, but the production version hasn’t been launched yet.
The Tork T6X has been spotted testing yet again, rekindling our hopes of the electric bike hitting the roads soon. The Pune-based electric startup unveiled the T6X way back in 2016, and the motorcycle was spotted testing several times since then. However, it couldn’t make it to the market due to several delays. But now that the bike has been spotted in pretty much a production-ready form, we hope Tork brings it out next year.
Just like the one spied earlier, the test mule features a triangular LED headlight, streetfighter styling with large fairing extensions running all the way to the bottom, a split seat setup, and upright ergonomics with rear-set footpegs. The switchgear appears to be chunky, and the bike gets a TFT instrument cluster. The app-connected console features navigation, geo-fencing and anti-theft.
The battery compartment in the test mule is partly exposed while the trellis frame is neatly covered by the bodywork. Tork claims its frame mounted 6kW (peak) motor offers 27Nm, and is capable of allowing the bike to cruise at 100kmph. According to the company, the claimed range stands at 100km, and the battery can be charged to 80 percent in an hour.

It gets a telescopic fork up front, disc brakes at both ends with regenerative braking and alloys that look similar to the ones on the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 / Pulsar RS200. The swingarm is a tubular unit linked to a monoshock.
Once the Tork T6X hits the roads, it will be a more performance-packed alternative to the Revolt RV400, provided the bike lives up to the claimed specifications. Additionally, while the company had earlier revealed the price as Rs 1.25 lakh, expect it to cost around Rs 1.5 lakh now.
