Five years after the announcement of its first line of electric motorcycles, Tarform began its first deliveries in the US. The company has gone through a series of challenges closely related to the coronavirus pandemic, but it appears to have recovered enough to deliver the product to its first customers.
The Brooklyn, New York-based company says the electric motorcycle is a custom-made, handmade product that is very different from current electric motorcycles.
Tarform’s design and engineering teams put in thousands of man-hours before arriving at the current unique electric motorcycle design. The company says it has pushed the boundaries of technology as well as overcome unexpected challenges over the past few years. Disruptions in the supply chain could also prevent the company from implementing its plans.
Tarform Luna Racer Edition and Scrambler Edition are the first models released by the company. Pre-orders for the two models began in 2020. The $42,000 Tarform Founder Edition electric motorcycles were the first hand-built models scheduled for production.
The Tarform electric motorcycles have a top speed of 193 km/h and a range of 193 km, while the 10 kWh battery supports fast charging. The motorcycle weighs 200 kg.
Motorcycles are equipped with a round screen that displays speed, range and remaining battery power.
