Ratan Tata to invest in e-bike maker Tork Motors


According to a media report, Ratan Tata is likely to invest an undisclosed amount in Tork Motors - a Pune-based electric bike start-up.

Tork Motors is developing its first electric bike called the T6X since 2015. The bike could be in its final stages of development as prototypes have been spotted testing on the road.

The Tork T6X is said to be powered by a lithium-ion battery, which is claimed to offer a maximum range of 100 km on a single charge. The company claims that the battery can be recharged to 80% of its capacity in 1 hour. The bike has a claimed top speed of 100 km/h. The T6X also uses Tork Intuitive Response Operating System (TIROS), which compiles and analyses various parameters like power management, real-time power consumption and range forecasts.

In 2016, Tork Motors had secured funding from Bharat Forge and Ola Cabs founder Bhavish Aggarwal.
