Electric motorcycles don't have to conform to traditional design rules

Tarform, a Brooklyn, NY-based startup company, has two new motorcycles for 2022. They are the Scrambler and the Racer, and both share the same specs, including the motor. They boast a 120 mph top speed, 120 mile range, a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds, 3 riding modes, and fast charging (0-80% in 50 minutes).

The great thing about electric motorcycles is that they aren’t constrained by traditional motorcycle designs. Tarform’s bikes are an exercise in simplicity, though they didn’t get there easily. The company started with a sketch in 2016.

Their vision is “to create a new breed of electric motorcycles that honor the spirit of craftsmanship while embracing the future. Since this inception point, Tarform has been on a mission to redefine the way we move by delivering
beautiful, sustainable, and technologically advanced vehicles that make mobility both exhilarating and soulful. We have launched into 2022 by bringing our flagship Tarform Founder Edition series to market, to be followed by our production line Luna series later this year.”

The bikes are made of natural, biodegradable and recyclable materials.

The motor puts out 41kW, or 55 HP.

There are three modes that change the power characteristics.

The bikes start at $24,000 and will start shipping in the summer of 2022. You can reserve one for $500, and their website lists some of the federal rebates available, and there may be state and local rebates, as well.
