Futuristic electric motorcycle Verge will go into productionMay 9, 2020
The Finnish company plans to mass-produce its futuristic Verge TS motorcycle. The novelty will be available at a starting price of $ 26,950
A small Finnish startup RMK Vehicles announced the release of its first motorcycle under the brand name Verge Motorcycles – the announcement took place at the EICMA 2019 international motorcycle exhibition. This is a serial version of the previously shown E2 concept – the novelty will be designated TS.
Providing its future owners with many premium options, the Finnish novelty retains all its features that made the motorcycle so impressive. Rigid rear wheel and rim mounted motor. Now Verge has announced that it will soon be launched mass production of the electric motorcycle TS.
With an engine of 80 kW (107 horsepower) and a torque of 996 Nm, the TS can accelerate to a speed of 100 km / h in just 4 seconds.
The electric motorcycle has a maximum range of 289.68 km, as well as the ability to quickly charge.
Without a rear hub, the engine acts as a stern brake system. Verge decided to remove the brake pedal for the double levers of the hand brake. In the absence of all pedals, the new TS has both rear and front footrests, so the driver can customize ergonomics according to his personal preferences, situation and driving style. The Finnish brand also convinces potential customers that replacing the rear tires is as easy as regular wheels and can be done with simple tools.
The motorcycle will be produced in Finland. The first Verge model will cost $ 26,950, but the prices will match competitors from the premium segment such as Energica and Harley-Davidson Livewire. Verge TS will receive full Ohlins suspension and Brembo dual-disc braking system in front.
Verge recently opened pre-orders for TS. For $ 2,158, customers can reserve a motorcycle for themselves before production starts.
