Electric motorcycles have come a long way and the Tork T6X is a prime example. The Tork T6X can cover a range of 100km on a full charge and draws power from a 6kW motor that produces 27Nm of torque. The T6X was built ground-up and the company, a startup, claims that the Tork T6X can be charged up to 80 percent in 60 minutes.
The Hero Electric Photon is the most powerful offering by the electric bike manufacturer and boasts two riding modes — Economy and Power. The Photon has a range of 50km in the Power mode while on Economy mode, the scooter can travel 80km on a single charge. Standard features include a polycarbonate headlamp, telescopic front forks, and a disc brake for the front. The Hero Electric Photon requires a valid driver’s licence and registration to be used on the road.
The Hero Electric Optima Plus is powered by an electric motor that develops less than 250watt of power and has a range of around 70km on a full charge. The battery takes about six to eight hours to charge fully, and since the battery output is low, the scooter does not need registration or a licence.
The Hero Electric Cruz, although features a only a 250watt electric motor, comes with telescopic front forks and an advanced throttle mechanism that helps in quick acceleration. The Cruz also features a large storage section and can travel 70km on a single charge. The Cruz, owing to its small engine, need not be registered by the RTO, nor does it require a licence.
