Tork Motors has announced the launch of the new Kratos electric motorcycle in the Indian market. This new electric vehicle is available in two variants – standard and R. Both models are distinguished through their respective colour options and specifications. Here we explain the differences between the new Kratos and the Kratos R.
The key visual distinguisher between the two variants of the Kratos is its colour palette. The base model is available in white colour option only. The Kratos R, on the other hand, can be bought in four paint choices – white, red, blue, and black. Apart from more colour options, the Kratos R also boasts an ‘R’ badge to distinguish it from the base model.
Power and Torque Differences
The Krator R packs better power and torque output than the base model. The electric motor on the standard Tork Kratos makes a peak power output of 7.5kW or 10.05bhp and a maximum torque of 28Nm. In comparison, the Kratos R produces a maximum power output of 9kW or 12.06bhp and a peak torque of 38Nm.
Acceleration and Top Speed
The standard Kratos accelerates from 0-40kmph in four seconds before achieving its top speed of 100kmph. The R variant, which boasts a higher power and torque output, is claimed to achieve a top speed of 105kmph and a 0-40kmph acceleration time of 3.5 seconds, making it 5kmph faster and 0.5 second quicker than the base version.
Charging and Battery Range
Despite the differences in performance, the company claims an identical battery range for both variants. The 4kWH, IP67 certified, lithium-ion battery pack is claimed to deliver an IDC (Indian Driving Cycle) range of 180km. The company claims a real-life range of 120km per charge. Check out the mode-wise range below:

The R variant boasts fast charging capabilities, and Tork Motors claims a 0-80 per cent charge in one hour. The Kratos R owners can avail free access to Tork’s charging network for two years.
Both variants pack a wide range of features. The R variant, however, gets additional features that give it an edge over the base model.
