Pune-based Tork Motorcycles is gearing up to launch the Kratos electric motorcycle in the last week of January.
The Tork Kratos was formerly known as the Tork T6X and has been in development for six years. There have been some delays since the T6X was unveiled in 2016, but in October 2021, the company had announced that the production-ready bikes would soon be ready for delivery.
The Kratos is an Indian-made electric vehicle and features its proprietary Tork LIION lithium-ion battery with an axial-flow motor that is said to offer the highest peak power and range. We’ll wait to see the specs at the time of release.
As with most electric vehicles, the Tork Kratos will have an operating system to help manage power, monitor real-time power consumption, and collect trip data, among other features.
We’ve seen several iterations and test mules of Tork Motorcycles T6X in the past, with most of the bodies of the first bikes coming from a Yamaha FZ-16 donor bike. The Tork Kratos, on the other hand, is an all-new motorcycle with new bodywork, split seats, LED lighting and a redesigned frame.
The company claims that the larger battery will result in more range, while the fast charger will allow for quick battery charging. To recap, the 2016 Tork T6X had a claimed range of 100 km and a top speed of 100 km/h.
The Tork Kratos can be booked online after the launch. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in March.
