Tork Motors has announced a single-day delivery of 50 Kratos R electric motorcycles on the occasion of the auspicious Gudi Padwa. The festival marks the Marathi New Year and all deliveries take place in the city of Pune, which is also home to the electric motorcycle manufacturer. Customers received their Kratos R electric motorcycles at Tork’s first experience center in Pune.
The Tork Kratos R is the only version of the electric motorcycle currently available.its price is ¥158,000 (ex-showroom after subsidy), with an axial flux motor producing 9 kW (12 bhp) and 38 Nm of peak torque, with a top speed of 105 kmph. This electric motorcycle can travel 180 kilometers on a single charge. The electric motorcycle runs on the company’s TIROS operating system and features a fully digital console and three riding modes – Eco, City and Sport. A reverse mode can also make parking easier.

Commenting on the delivery, Tork Motors Founder and CEO Kapil Shelke said: “On this auspicious day, we are delighted to add color to the celebrations of electric motorcycle enthusiasts by handing over the keys to the Tork Kratos R. We are enthusiastic about the response we have received and look forward to adding more and more riders to our family at Tork Motors. We wish all our customers and enthusiasts, Gudi Padwa, very happy.”
The entry-level Tork Kratos S is now discontinued. HT Auto understood that there was demand for more Kratos R from the start, which is why it made sense to adjust the lineup according to customer requirements. The Kratos R will now be the new entry point for the brand, while the company will launch the more powerful Kratos X soon. Unveiled at Auto Expo 2023, the Tork Kratos X features a 7-inch touchscreen digital console, an aluminum swingarm and a new FF (Fast) mode. The company has yet to disclose power figures and pricing.
We do know that test drives of the Tork Kratos X will begin sometime next month, with deliveries to follow starting in June. The manufacturer is also expanding its presence with a new Experience Center. Apart from Pune, it has also started deliveries in Mumbai and Bengaluru. Tork’s website says the brand will arrive in Surat and Patna soon.
