Kapil the founder and present CEO of Tork Motors was very passionate about cars and motorcycles right from his childhood. He was fond of collecting electric remote control cars and use to break them and fix them using available pet kits available out in the market these days. It was in his college days where he saw a video on races that happen in "The Isle of Man" which drove him down to build an electric motorcycle which could be raced over there.
