Pune-based electric vehicle (EV) start-up Tork Motors has rolled out the company’s first electric motorcycle, the Tork Kratos from the assembly line on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, the new year celebrated in Maharashtra. The Tork Kratos was launched in January 2022 with prices beginning at ₹ 1.08 lakh for the standard Tork Kratos, and at ₹ 1.23 lakh for the more powerful Tork Kratos R.
