    4.3″ touch TFT with navigation
    Cloud connectivity
    Utility storage

    The Tork T6X is India’s first electric performance motorcycle. Built on 7 years of exhaustive Research and Development, the T6X comes from a stable of thoroughbreds, having shared the drawing board with an Isle of Man TT, TTXGP finishers.

    The T6X ushers in a host of never-before features for the smart modern urban commuter, driven by technology poised at the cutting edge.

    Enough torque to smoke most challengers. Enough race cred to make anything on two wheels blush.

    The future of personal transport is here, And she’s maddeningly quick!

    Around $2,500 NZ retail in India so after our importers take their cuts they’ll be more like $5 or 6k like the Enfield that sells for approx $3,500 retail in India but sells for $10k here go figuire someone’s raking it in

    Mmmm agreed I was in India and even doing the currency conversions in my head the NZ price seemed high. Basocally you take the rupee chop off the zero and divide by 4 and you’re still ahead. It is possible to make a profit and still sell them at a price of a GN250 which is about how advanced they are, The electric model above would be great but it would also need to be cheap…..

    Looks like it has a petrol tank?

    It does look like it. But I’m sure it might just house some electric circuit or maybe even just for the looks…

    Eben Venter : Yes, it will be for looks. Motorcyclists tend to be very reactionary, which explains the persistence of silly things such as the riding position, telescopic forks and exposed drive chains.
