Tarform Electric Motorcycles Begin Deliveries to Customers

January 30, 2022

It’s not just a concept – this wild motorcycle is the real deal!

New York based Tarform first showed off sketches of its wild, all-electric motorcycle concept five years ago, and began accepting preorders in 2020. It’s a lot easier to draw a motorcycle than it is to build a motorcycle, though, and many believed the brutal-looking Tarform would never get beyond the concept stage. To the doubters: you were wrong. The first of the Tarform Luna Racer Edition and the Scrambler Edition models reached their buyers just last week.

The bike’s makers are, understandably, feeling pretty good about themselves. “Thousands of design and engineering hours later, pushing boundaries around technology and sustainability, as well as navigating around unpredictable challenges due to Covid and disruptions in the supply chain,” reads their announcement, “we are bringing the Tarform motorcycle to market!”

WHAT YOU GET FOR THE MONEY

With a starting price of about $24,000, the Tarform Luna and Scramblers are not cheap bikes – but the first, “Founder Edition” bikes cost even more, at $42,000. For that money, you get a bike that, love it or hate it, looks like nothing else on the road.

The Tarform should also perform like very little else, too. The 440 lb. bike is propelled by a 41-kW electric motor that offers plenty of high-speed thrills, supercar acceleration, and a top speed that’s electronically limited to “just” 120 mph. City range is about 120 miles – which is about the same, if not a bit better, than the competition from the Livewire and Zero brand bikes – while the 10-kWh battery supports Level 2 charging that allows riders to go from nearly empty to an 80% charge in about 45 minutes.

You also get something fairly unique in the world of electric two wheelers: sound! “The sound of the Tarform motorcycle is generated by enhancing the existing sound of the electrical motor using an acoustic resonator that gives it an unmistakable presence,” says the company. “This serves the function of enhancing the riding experience to create a more intimate connection with the machine, as well as providing a safety feature that alerts surrounding commuters.”

If you’re among the many, many motorcyclists who have fallen hard for the Taraform’s looks, you can head to the company’s website and place your order today. As I type this, there are at least 50 orders ahead of you, though, so don’t expect 2-day delivery.
