About Tork Bike
Tork Motorcycles was founded in 2009 by a group of young graduates from Pune’s DY Patil College of Engineering who had a dream of designing and creating a zero-emissions vehicles that could perform on par with petrol-powered machines. Kapil Shelke, the founder and CEO of Tork Motorcycles, helmed a team of like-minded engineers, Isle of Man veterans and most importantly, racing enthusiasts who successfully crafted their first electric motorcycle, the T1X and raced it against the best in the world at the prestigious Isle of Man TTXGP (the Electric TT race at the Isle of Man) in 2009.
It was ridden by the legendary John Crellin and finished third on the podium – an unprecedented feat for the first ever participating team from India. This success made the world stand up and take notice of the company’s abilities. In the past decade, Tork bike has indigenously developed multiple electric motorcycle prototypes that have powered racers to podium finishes at the Isle of Man TT and the TTXGP in the United Kingdom.
Driven by such strong credentials and proven expertise, Tork bike was now ready to break into the Indian urban commuter segment, with an offering that was unmatched - both in performance and economy. Owing to their international racing success, in April 2016, Tork Motorcycles received funding from Co-founders of Ola and CoCubes. This enabled Tork Motorcycles to take their first electric bike for the public from the prototype stage to production. Tork Motorcycles had set up its manufacturing facility in Chakan, Pune.
In October 2016, the first Tork motorcycle in India, the T6X, was launched at a price of ₹1.25 lakh. The bike had created such a sensation among the Indian biking community that it had received more than 1,000 pre-bookings within 24 hours of its release. Along with numerous features, the T6X came with many firsts to its credit in the two-wheeler segment. The motorcycle had several features like cloud connectivity, integrated GPS and in-built navigation capabilities, thereby making it the first smart motorcycle. Connected with a mobile app, the platform would map driving cycles and provide real-time information of the bike. The T6X also claimed the coveted title of being India’s first indigenous electric performance bike.
