BENGALURU: Leading Indian motorcycles maker Tork Motors Ltd on Friday unveiled its premium electric bike T6X here.

"T6X has been developed ground up as a future of mobility for the smart modern urban commuter," said the Pune-based Tork in a statement here.

To be rolled out for testing and reviews by year-end, the rugged bike was designed and built over seven years of indigenous research and development, it said.

"Powered by lithium batteries, the 130kg bike is engineered to ride at 100 kmph top speed and up to 100km on a single charge," said Tork Founder Director Kapil Shelke at the preview here.

The two-wheeler's battery can be charged up to 80 pct in one hour and full charge in two hours. Depending upon the usage, the battery life can last up to 80,000-1,00,000km.

To be introduced in Bengaluru, Delhi and Pune markets in the first phase, the bike can be pre-booked at a promotional price of Rs 124,999 excluding taxes and levies.

Handcrafted with custom-designed components, the two-wheeler features boasts of on board navigation, storage, cloud connectivity, digital display, quick charge and superior acceleration, said Tork.

"The bike connects with customer's mobile device through our app to communicate its health, range, service alerts and customised riding profiles," said Shelke.

"The bike also has safety features like ABS, CDs, anti-theft, geo fencing and daytime running lamp," he added.

Apart from analysis and compilation of data for every ride, power management, real-time power consumption and range forecasts, the product TIROS (Tork Intuitive Response Operating System) also likes to learn how you ride.

On the overall market scenario and the policy framework, Shelke said the state-run National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 aimed to put seven million electric and hybrid vehicles on roads by 2020.

In addition, the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles scheme will provide 795 crore aid to electronic vehicle markets by 2020.

The sale of electric vehicles (EV) grew nearly 38 pct in the last financial year. Total EV sales for 2015-16 was 22,000 units (20,000 two wheelers and 2,000 four-wheelers) as against 16,000 EVs sold during 2014-15, according to Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles.
