Finland ’s Verge introduced a detailed motorcycle TS series with TS headrest design and jaw-dropping specifications. Cheaper than it Harley-Davidson LiveWire It did not reach 60 mph.

Verge – known as RMK Vehicles until the end of 2019 – explained that it is building its brand image with attitude, refinement and unique design. We ca n’t talk about the first two seeing the TS in metal, but the company ’s images undoubtedly confirm that it ticks the third box. Its most striking visual feature is the hubless rear wheel, which is achieved by a circular motor mounted directly under the rim. This packaging solution looks cool, but because no chains or belts are needed, it makes the operation of the TS easier.

The electric motor produces 107 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of volcanic wake-up force; the latter number is almost the same as Bentley Mulsanneof. It takes less than four seconds to accelerate from zero to 60 mph. If you are still on the saddle (and on both wheels), you can continue until the speedometer shows 111 mph. Verge didn't say much about the pack, although it drove 124 miles on the highway and 186 miles in the city. It takes four hours to charge using the car charger, and 50 minutes to use the fast charger.

For other situations, Verge works with celebrities to make TS safe and exciting. Brembo provided dual front disc brakes, Pirelli provided Rosso Corsa II tires, and Olympus designed the suspension. The aluminum frame helps offset the weight of the battery. Its weight? The company said: "Below your imagination."

Verge priced the TS at 24,990 euros, or about 27,000 US dollars. There are many two-wheel and four-wheel cars that cost close to $ 30,000, including The new Volkswagen Golf GTI with Harley-Davidson LiveWire. The latter is a product that buyers are more likely to cross-purchase with TS. It has a base price of $ 29,799, has an urban range of 146 miles, and its 0-60 mph time is about 3.5 seconds. Can also be used immediately.

On the other hand, riders who want to ride on the TS need a little patience. Verge has started collecting refunds The deposit is 2,000 euros (about 2,100 US dollars), and the production time is tentatively scheduled to begin at the end of 2019. Ad slots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We have contacted the company to find out whether the US market is receiving attention, and if we know more, we will update this story.
