Electric bikemaker Tork Motors is all set to launch its first-ever electric bike, “Kratos,” which has been under development for the past six years. The all-new Kratos is slated to launch in the last week of January 2022.
However, the launch faced a few delays, but the brand made an announcement in October 2021 that the production-ready bikes would be ready for delivery soon. Formerly known as the T6X, the Kratos is a completely made-in-India bike.
The Kratos is kitted with its proprietary Tork LIION lithium-ion battery pack with an axial flux motor, which, according to the company, offers high power and range. The detailed specifications will be out with the official launch though.
The manufacturer has equipped the upcoming Kratos with their in-house, home-built operating system named TIROS that supports power management, observes real-time power consumption, and gathers trip data, among other things.
Furthermore, we have already seen various test mules of the T6X in the past, but the upcoming Kratos is absolutely different from the latter and gets new bodywork, LED lights, split-style seats, and a redesigned front fascia.
According to Tork Motors, the electric motorcycle is capable of generating more range and getting charged quickly thanks to the large batteries it uses. To exemplify, the 2016 T6X had a stated range of 100km and a top speed of 100kph.
As far as the bookings and pricing of the forthcoming bike are concerned, the bookings will commence soon after the virtual launch and it is expected to be priced at around Rs 1.20 lakh to Rs 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom).
Deliveries are expected to start in the month of March 2022. After being launched, the Tork Kratos is going to rival the likes of the Revolt RV400 electric bike. However, this bike is anticipated to be a premium offering.
