Futuristic Electric Bike On The Verge Of Production
Hubless not gutless.
The small Finnish startup RMK Vehicles announced a rebranding to Verge Motorcycles at EICMA 2019. The company scaled up in order to produce RMK Vehicles’ E2 concept as the TS production model and reach an international audience. Releasing updating specs and sporting new premium components, the TS also retained the features that made it such a conversation piece—the hubless rear wheel and rim-mounted motor. Now, Verge is taking the electric concept for a final lap around the show ring before ramping up production.
With an 80kW (107 horsepower) motor and a jaw-dropping torque figure of 735 lb-ft, it’s no surprise that the TS can achieve sub-4 second 0-60mph times. What is stunning is that the electric powerhouse reaches a maximum city range of 180 miles and 120 miles on the highway. The addition of DC fast-charging should also cut down on recharge times as well.
Verge recently opened pre-orders for the TS on the company’s website. For €2,000 ($2,158 USD), customers can reserve a unit before the electric bike goes into production. Though the TS has come a long way from the E2 concept, it still has a way to go before we see it on public roadways. We’re looking forward to what it brings to the table in an ever-evolving electric market.
