Riding a unique bike on road is a fantasy of you and me. You might have ridden such bike but the new motorbike hit the market sets apart. American motorcycle startup Tarform recently has uncovered its new electric motorcycle.
Taras Kravtchouk, the CEO and co-founder of Tarform, designed the bike himself utilizing his flair in industrial design and motorcycle design background. He wanted to create something that combined the public’s emerging interest in electric transportation with the trending development of vintage motorcycles.
The result was the first Tarform motorbike.
The battery pack of this model has a range of 90 miles in urban areas and 50 miles on the highway. A complete charge requires four hours. If you find it unsatisfactory in terms of the distance you have an excellent alternative of customization. The modular platform that the motorcycles are built around makes for easy customization.
So later on, when a battery with a wider range become available, it’ll be a breeze to swap.
Tarform e-bike has also integrated some smart features to improve performance and track the bike’s health. If there is an issue with functioning, an alert will be sent to your smartphone where you can directly set up an appointment.
The design is an unique type of technological convenience wrapped in vintage materials. The Tarform bike is electric and made with 3D-printed parts with recyclable biomaterials.
However, the design is made, the designer who likes old stuff, in mind. The leather seat and bronze ring around the instrument panel are clearly from the brain of a designer who likes old stuff.
The simplicity of this new bike is that it devised parts are easily changeable and upgrades can be added.
An exceptional feature of this motorbike is its AI system. Tarform bike has integrated sensors and AI to help keep the rider better informed on the road. It means notifications of surroundings on the bike’s bar-mounted heads-up display to help deal with blind spots caused by helmets and increase overall safety.
There’s also app integration within the bike itself, allowing for notifications of charging and scheduled maintenance right on your phone.
