Tork India Teases New Electric Motorcycle Racer

Tork India, third place Open Class winner at this year’s TTXGP at the Isle of Man, has posted up a teaser on Facebook announcing the imminent arrival of their new electric motorcycle racer. While the photo being displayed on Facebook is really just a GSX-R cover with the Tork logos superimposed onto it, we’re still excited to see our first glimpse of the new Indian racer after the new year.

Boasting the title of India’s first zero emission race team, and the first Indian team to podium at the Isle of Man, Tork utilizes Agni motors in their design, which is likely to also be the case in their new race bike. We’ll be curious to see if they stay with the brushed DC motor from their original design, or if they make the plunge into AC or brushless motors.

Tork India has not announced where it will be racing next year, but we suspect that a bid in the TTXGP UK series is a safe bet. More as we get it.
