Futuristic Finnish Design
This electric motorcycle will get you places, and quickly, boasting as much torque as a Bentley Mulsanne.
Finnish outfit Verge Motorcycles is set to start production on its unique TS electric motorcycle – one of the most distinctive two-wheel designs to ever hit the road.
The clever design houses the electric motor in the wheel rim, eliminating the need for a belt or chain, while also acting as a rear braking system. It also frees up a lot of space, which means a bigger battery and some impressive stats.
Of those, Verge claims the TS to be capable of an unbelievable 996Nm of torque, belting a rider from 0-100km/h in under 4 seconds with a top speed of 178km/h.
Equally impressive is the maximum range of 290km (city use) and 190km on the highway. The bike also reaches full charge in just 50-minutes on a fast-charger (four hours conventionally).
Currently taking $3,300 deposits to reserve a unit, before the bike goes into production (expected shortly) at approx. $41,000.
