The Tork T6X is India's first electric motorcycle
Indian manufacturer Tork has unveiled theirs, and India's, first ever electric motorcycle, named the T6X.
The bike boasts a range of 100km (62 miles), with a cruising speed of 62mph and 19ftlb of torque on tap instantly. Tork claim the lithium ion batteries can be charged to 80% capacity in just one hour.
There's space under the tank to store a helmet, and the 4.3" touch screen dash includes navigation software, cloud connectivity and can connect to your phone via the Tork app. The touch screen is powered by Tork's own TIROS intelligence system, which includes multiple rider modes, learns how you ride, and will update automatically from the cloud.

Tork have manufactured electric vehicles previously, but the T6X is the first available to the public. The company has also been involved in electic racing, taking part in the TTXGP and Isle of Man TT Zero, where they achieved a best result of third.
Kapil Shelke, founder and director said: "Investments in smart technology, our racing pedigree and experience with electric vehicles has enabled us to refine and enhance our overall value proposition with the T6X.
"Powering the T6X is our signature TIROS intelligence system which will enable the rider to easily switch between customisable ride modes adjusting power delivery. The motorcycle can be tuned anywhere from sporty maverick to comfortable eco-cruiser at the touch of a button. TIROS also updates and incorporates new features automatically via the cloud, making the Tork T6X truly the smartest motorcycle on the road."
Tork has already set up six charging points in Pune, and aims to have 100 in place by December. The T6X will initially be available in Pune, Bangalor and Delhi for INR 1,24,999, equivalent to £1,460.26.
