What instantly catches eyes on this bike is of course the lack of a hub in the rear wheel. The transmission is carried out directly on the rim and creates a real novelty in the world of motorcycles, used to transmissions by chain or cardan shaft.
Several benefits are announced by the manufacturer: reduced maintenance, power transmitted directly to the wheel, almost non-existent noise.
We were lucky to have already studied the manufacturer’s press kit and already knew the characteristics of the TS, but when we saw it in real life, we were really blown away: it is a pure wonder, of an authentic thoroughbred!
Its sharp design is particularly successful, the driving position is perfect and suggests possible long journeys on its handlebars. The large digital screen is teeming with information on fuel consumption, range, driving style, etc. Those familiar with the Tesla brand will be in known territory, as for the others, we can bet that they will quickly appreciate this splendid dashboard.
During the presentation we had the chance to take a close look at the very first prototype of the Verge Motorcycles TS and we have to admit that the pre-series fully respects the atypical line of the prototype. It civilizes it, without distorting it and keeping a separate line, among the multitude of new motorcycles released in 2019/2020.
During the shooting, many onlookers, attracted by the futuristic aspect of the bike and the absence of a hub on the rear wheel, came to admire the TS and bombarded us with questions. We are certain that the Verge Motorcycles TS will meet with great success in France, during its official launch, scheduled for the year 2021.
Advertised for less than € 25,000, the Verge Motorcycles roadster is currently available for pre-order.
