Verge Motorcycle gave an interesting surprise at CES 2023 by presenting the Verge TS electric motorcycle. Has the appearance of a sport bike, rear-wheel drive which is quite unique. Shows a new revolution, a picture of the electric motor of the future.
The Verge TS represents the future of motorcycle design. It challenges traditional design principles and conventional ways of thinking with the clear aim of designing the world’s best electric motorcycle from the ground up.
Not a bike that looks like yesterday, but a bike that feels like the future. The end result of this thinking is the world’s first hubless electric rim motor which is the core of the entire design.
The Verge TS is expected to arrive in the United States in 2023. With DC fast charging, the TS model gets from 0 to 80% in just 55 minutes. Available in 3 variants, namely TS, TS Ultra and TS Pro
The most standard variant is the TS, which has a maximum power of 107n2 hp and 700 Nm of torque. The maximum speed is 180 kph with the ability to roam the battery up to 250 km, and fast battery charging around 55 minutes.
The TS Pro variant has 137 hp of power and 1,000 Nm of torque with acceleration from 0-100 kph in about 3.5 seconds, a maximum speed of 200 kph with a range of 350 km and fast battery charging for 35 minutes. Lastly is the TS Ultra variant, with power reaching 201 hp and 1,200 Nm of torque with acceleration from 0-100 kph in 2.5 seconds, capable of traveling a distance of up to 375 km on one battery charge and charging the battery fast for 25 minutes.
The electric motor is integrated directly into the rear wheel. This also means that all power is transferred directly to the road. Integrating the bike into the rear wheel creates more space in the middle of the bike for the battery.
This allows for very low weight distribution, making the bike’s handling feel more agile and lighter. With a hubless design, the manufacturer removed all moving parts such as the chain and cogs, resulting in a sleek, sleek design.
All parts are either manufactured in-house at Verge Motorcycle factories or sourced from top-of-the-line European manufacturers. The Verge TS is designed to be a showcase of high-quality European craftsmanship.
These electric bikes will be marketed soon, with the TS variant as standard around $ 26,900, TS Pro around $ 29,900 and the top variant is the TS Ultra costing $ 44,900.
