Quoted by Gizmochina, Tarform is said to have experienced some setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but is now apparently starting to bounce back by starting to ship products to initial customers in the United States.
The company, based in Brooklyn, New York, says that electric motorcycles use handmade products that are far different from today’s electric bicycles.
Tarform’s design and engineering team had clocked thousands of man-hours before arriving at the unique designs today used by electric motorcycles.
The company says it is pushing boundaries around technology and sustainability, as well as navigating challenges that were unanticipated over the past few years.
Disruptions to the supply chain can also harm the company in meeting its production targets.
The Tarform Luna Racer Edition and Scrambler Edition are the first set of models launched by the company. Pre-orders for both models begin in 2020.
The $42,000 Tarform Founder’s Edition electric bike is the first hand-assembled model slated for production, and early units have been spotted at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.
The Tarform electric bike weighs 200kg and offers a top speed of 193km/h and a range of 193km. The Tarform has a 10kWh battery that supports Level 2 fast charging although it doesn’t support DC fast charging.
