    Pune-based Tork finally launched its much anticipated (and delayed) electric motorcycle on January 26. Now called the Kratos, it is available in two variants  Kratos and Kratos R are designed to cater to our unique road conditions. Here are five things you should know about the made-in-India Kratos and the sportier Kratos R

    Tork Kratos: variants 

    Over the base Kratos, the Kratos R variant gets a more powerful motor, fast charging capability of 0-80 percent in 60 minutes, connected tech like track analytics, geofencing, ride analytics, motor walk assists and free two-year access to the Tork charging network. 

    Tork Kratos: powerful motor 

    The Tork Kratos gets a motor that produces 4kW continuous power, 7kW of peak power and 28Nm of torque, allowing it a 0-40kph acceleration time of 4sec and a top speed of 100kph. The Kratos R gets a different motor that makes 4.5kW of continuous power, 9kW of peak power it claims a 0-40kph time of 3.5sec and a top speed of 105kph. Tork has designed and developed its own axial flux motors in house. 

    Tork Kratos: range

    The 4kWh Li-ion battery pack is common between the two bikes and is housed in an aluminium casing, giving it an IP67 weather protection rating. Both the Tork Kratos and the Kratos R get an IDC-rated range of 180km, but Tork claims the motorcycles have a real-world range of up to 120km in Eco mode, 100km in city mode and 70km in sport mode.

    Tork Kratos: underpinnings

    The Tork Kratos is built around a trellis chassis which primarily houses the battery pack while the motor is housed in the swingarm. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels that get tubeless tyres as standard. Its tyre sizes are 90/80-17 at the front and 120/80-17 at the rear. It has a ground clearance of 165mm as well as a seat height of 785mm. Tork tells us that its motorcycle will look and feel like a conventional bike to ride, a claim supported by the 140kg kerb weight, which is much higher than the 108kg Revolt RV 400 and about on par with most 150-160cc motorcycles

    Tork Kratos: prices

    After Fame II and state subsidies, the Kratos will cost you Rs 1.07 lakh, while the Kratos R will set you back by Rs 1,22,999 (both prices, ex-showroom, Pune).
