The Finnish startup Verge Motorcycles, known in the past as RMK Vehicles, has unveiled the first photos of the Verge TS electric motorcycle that aims to challenge the Harley-Davidson LiveWire.
The development of this battery-powered two-wheeler has not yet been completed but interested parties can already book it by leaving a 2,000 euro deposit. The total cost of the bike is approximately 24,900 euros without VAT, a little high, but in line with the prices of other similar models.
The electric motor is inserted inside the rim of the rear wheel and is capable of delivering 80 kW and 1,000 Nm of maximum torque. Verge TS can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than four seconds. The maximum speed is 180 Km / h.
Unfortunately, there are no precise details on the battery but Verge Motorcycles guarantees an autonomy of 300 km in the city and 200 km on the highway.
Also, there are no precise specs on suspension or brakes.
And how is it charged? Through a CCS connector. With a level two charge, it can be ready to go in four hours, while using a level 3 fast charge type, it charges in 40 minutes.
Verge TS is an impressive motorcycle, especially for the technical choices made. The real limit that is common to all two battery-powered bikes is the price still too high for normal users. But without a doubt, it is a motorcycle that promises strong sensations.
