Verge Mototcycles: limited edition e-superbike designed by Mike Hakkinen
Futuristic bike with a Finnish twist: Verge Mototcycles’ Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition Prestige motorcycle is truly one-of-a-kind and limited to just 100 units. It comes with a distinctive identification number and signature of the former F1 world champion.
“From experience, I know what it takes to produce a vehicle that embodies speed, precision and elegance. My ambition was to design the motorcycle down to the smallest detail and not just pick the color. Each bike is numbered and bears an exclusive signature. This electric superbike represents the future of driving and is the expression of a fully fulfilled life!” enthuses Mika Häkkinen.
All this is combined with Verge’s expertise to deliver an electric superbike with a range of 350 kilometers and a battery that can be fully charged in just 35 minutes. It also features an integrated rim motor in the rear wheel, a patented and internationally award-winning innovation developed by Verge.
The bike relies on carbon fiber fairing, while an innovative ceramic finish protects against scratches. Uniform black shocks and dark gray and silver details provide a futuristic look. Visually, at least, it’s reminiscent of the Silver Arrow era, with which Hakkinen won the Formula One World Championship in the late 1990s.
