Verge Motorcycles, a company based in Finland, will shortly begin the production of the Verge TS, a stunning motorcycle with a shady rear wheel.
Fully Charged Show, a clean energy and electric automobile channel, has recently launched the TS for a spin and provided a video preview of its capabilities.
The motorcycle''s pivotless back is an excellent example of electric vehicles allowing for a unique redesign, which, in this case, makes maintenance "unusual," according to Verge Motorcycles, since its "motor has no chain, belt, oils, or filter."
The electric motor is placed inside the rear tire. During this time, the central part of the system is attached to the swingarm, with the outer part rotating around it. Verge Motorcycles placed electromagnets on the rim that repel each other, causing the outer part of the rim to rotate, putting the electric motorcycle forward.
A unique rear wheel design
The unique design does not only reduce maintenance, but it also increases cooling and removes the bulk weight of the wheel hub used on traditional automobiles.
Verge Motorcycles claims it generates 107 horsepower and a massive 1,000 Nm of torque (737 foot-pounds) which is comparable to those seen on a Bugatti hypercar. The TS has a maximum range of 186 miles (300 km) and it can reach a top speed of 111 mph (180 kph) and can reach 0-60 mph (0-100 kph) in under 4 seconds.

The TS will not come cheap, but it is priced at a fairly reasonable $23,681, considering there isn''t really any other electric motor like it on the market, at least when it comes to that impressive torque output. Production will begin later this year.
