Tork Kratos, Kratos R e-bike deliveries begin 7 months after launch in India
Tork Motors has finally started deliveries of its electric motorcycles Kratos and Kratos R to its customers. On Friday, the company announced that the deliveries have started across five cities in India in the initial phase. The two electric bikes were launched earlier this year. The deliveries were scheduled to start in April. However, due to the ongoing chip shortage crisis, the electric two-wheeler manufacturer had to delay the delivery process by another three months.
Tork Motors had launched the new Kratos electric bike in India back in January this year at a price of ₹1.02 lakh. The bike was introduced in two versions - Kratos and Kratos R. It took the EV maker nearly seven months to start delivery. The company delivered the first 20 units to the customers on Friday. Initially, Tork Motors will be offering these electric motorcycles to its customers in Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Delhi. The company plans to expand its reach to other cities across India later on.
