Tork India participated in the very first electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man in 2009 when it was held under the auspices of the TTXGP and later ran in that organization’s road racing series. It has, however, been on something of a hiatus this past season. Now, it has teamed up with a battery manufacturer to form Team Tork Haiyin and is coming back to the mountain course with a new bike based on the Yamaha YZF R15 sporting the new Agni 111 RDR motor. Though unproven on the TT track, the powerplant should put out about 50 kW (67 hp). It definitely is going to be interesting to see how it holds up with Antonio Maeso at the throttle.
