Brooklyn-based Tarform reveals its street legal electric motorcycle, a bike that honors the past while looking to a sustainable future. The Luna features a modular platform built around upgradeable battery packs, bodywork, and software. The bodywork of the Luna is constructed out of a mix of aluminum, vegan leather, and a flax seed weave that helps reinforce the composite panel construction. The company is also researching how to avoid using conventional painting processes for a mono material that uses algae and iron-based metallic pigments.
Fuel will come from a 10kwh battery pack that delivers a city range of 120 miles and can charge from 0-80% in under an hour. As for performance, the electric motor produces 55 hp and can get from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and will hit a top speed of 95 mph. Other features include a 3.4" HD display with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, Blindspot detection with haptic feedback, a 180-degree HD rearview camera, a Sonic Aura Acoustic Sound System, regenerative braking, and keyless proximity start.
