Tarform’s ‘Luna’ Is The World’s Most Sustainable Smart Electric Motorcycle

Jun 26, 2020

Category: Rides

Since 2018, Brooklyn-based electric motorcycle startup, Tarform has been showing off early versions of its debut eBike model, though the fledgling firm has now finally pulled the cover off of the final production version of the motorcycle with the 2021 Luna.

Weighing 440lbs, the Luna boasts a 41kW (55hp) PMAC motor that’s equipped with three riding modes and allows for sub-four-second 0-60mph times and a 95mph top speed. Offering a range of up to 120 miles, the Luna’s 10kWh Li-On battery can receive an 80% recharge in just 50 minutes. The Luna has also been given a modular design that allows for it to be upgraded as EV powertrain technology progresses, essentially future-proofing the thing. The electric two-wheeler’s bodywork is biodegradable and is composed of a flax seed weave-reinforced composite and recycled aluminum material. Technology on the Luna includes keyless proximity ignitions, 3.4” wifi and Bluetooth-connected displays, blindspot detection with haptic feedback, 180° rearview cameras, numerous 3D-printed components, and integrated faux sound generators. Pre-orders are being accepted now with deliveries slated to begin in 2021 with pricing starting at $24,000 — placing it right between Harley’s Livewire and Zero’s SR/F (and SR/S). Tarform’s also producing 54 hand-built “Founder Edition” examples with hand-TIG-welded frames and top-shelf Ohlins suspension and ISR brakes.

Purchase: $24,000+
