When Nikola Tesla said he could build electric motors as large as needed, Thomas Edison probably laughed at his young apprentice. But history has proven that AC motors can be big and efficient. That is literally the motivation behind the TS Electric Roadster from Verge Motorcycles.
A team of Finnish engineers and enthusiasts are about to shock the world. Instead of using off-the-shelf EV parts, the rear wheel is an electric motor built inside out. Thanks to the incredible diameter of the rotor and stator, this hubless rear wheel offers 737 lb-ft of torque to the ground. If you are looking for rear brakes, the motor becomes a generator and stops the bike while recharging the battery. You will have a city range of 186 miles or 124 on the highway.
