The Thor will be powered by impressive 30Kw of power along with 70Nm of torque available from the word go. The motor and controller system also gets a liquid cooling system to ensure maximum efficiency even after prolonged use. The bike also gets a reverse gear for easy manoeuvrability.

In typical cruiser fashion, the bike comes with a staggered tyre profile – 17 inch rims at the front and 15 inch steel at the back. Stopping power comes in the form of disk brakes at the back with dual channel ABS for improved control.

The bike features a 7.5 kWh battery pack that can power the Thor for up to 81 kms on a full charge. The bike can be topped up within 2 hours on a Level 2 charger and can be fast charged up to 80% in just 40 minutes. It should be noted that India does not have Level 2 charging facilities at present and a lower level charging facility may take longer.

The company may also introduce longer range variants with 15 kWh and 27 kWh capacities which can take the Thor to 149 kms and 270 kms respectively. The company, however, has not confirmed if and when these models will reach our shores.
