TORK Motors, India’s pioneering electric motorcycle manufacturer, is once again leading the way in the electric vehicle segment. The company has unveiled an innovative addition to its flagship model, the KRATOS R – the ECO+ mode. This new riding mode significantly enhances the bike’s range, empowering riders to achieve an impressive 150+ km on a single charge in urban settings.
The ECO+ mode bridges the gap between KRATOS R’s real-world riding range and the bike’s initial range estimate of 180km per charge. This latest feature complements the existing trio of riding modes already offered by the KRATOS R: ECO, CITY, and SPORT. This expanded range of modes allows riders to experience the full spectrum of performance and efficiency this exceptional motorcycle has to offer.
Specifically designed for city riders, the ECO+ mode boasts a top speed of 35km/h, making it ideal for those navigating congested urban areas with an emphasis on energy efficiency over speed.
Kapil Shelke, Founder & CEO of TORK Motors, commented on the new feature, saying, “The addition of ECO+ mode comes as a result of ask from our customers. People riding in the city demanded more range in certain riding conditions while having the option to quickly switch to higher performance when needed. We added the ECO+ mode to offer them flexibility and enhance the versatility of the package that the KRATOS R already provided. Depending on their mood, riders can extract the maximum range with this mode or unleash the full potential of the motorcycle in SPORT mode at the flick of a switch. And then, we also have an ECO and CITY mode for riders wanting to find middle grounds.”
Every new KRATOS R will come equipped with these four dynamic riding modes, along with a reverse mode designed to enhance convenience, especially during parking. Existing KRATOS R owners will also have access to the ECO+ mode, further expanding their riding experience.
The beating heart of the KRATOS R is its patented 9kW ‘Axial Flux’ motor, delivering a peak torque of 38 Nm and an impressive 96% efficiency rating. Coupled with an IP67-rated 4.0 kWh Li-ion battery pack, this powertrain combination is the driving force behind the bike’s remarkable IDC range of 180km.
Famed for its cutting-edge design and robust powertrain, the KRATOS R remains the premier urban motorcycle, excelling in performance, efficiency, and handling. TORK Motors continues to push the envelope in electric motorcycle innovation, solidifying the KRATOS R as the top choice for riders seeking not only an eco-conscious option but also an exhilarating and stylish riding experience.
