Tork Motors has announced the delivery of 50 Kratos R electric motorcycles in a single day on the auspicious occasion of Gudi Padwa.

It’s priced at ₹1.58 lakh (ex-showroom after subsidy) and comes with an axial flux motor that develops 9 kW (12 bhp) and 38 Nm of peak torque with a top speed of 105 kmph.

The base Tork Kratos Standard has now been discontinued. HT Auto understands that there was more demand for the Kratos R right from the start, which is why it made sense to trim the lineup according to customer requirements. The Kratos R will now be the brand’s new entry point while the company will introduce the more powerful Kratos X soon. The Tork Kratos X was unveiled at the 2023 Auto Expo with a 7-inch touchscreen digital console, an aluminium swingarm and a new FF (Furiously Fast) mode. The company is yet to disclose the power figures and pricing.
We do know that test rides for the Tork Kratos X will begin sometime next month, followed by deliveries from June onwards. The manufacturer is also expanding its presence with new experience centres. Apart from Pune, it has commenced deliveries in Mumbai and Bengaluru as well. Tork’s website states that the brand will be arriving in Surat and Patna soon.
