Electric superbike pioneer Verge Motorcycles has collaborated with world-famous F1 legend and two-time World Champion Mika Häkkinen to design the signature model of a new electric superbike. Häkkinen and Verge teamed up at the beginning of the year, when Häkkinen was appointed to the company’s Advisory Board. Häkkinen is also one of the investors in Verge Motorcycles. The signature model that Häkkinen and Verge have designed together demonstrates the best of two leading players in their field.

The luxury superbike combines a stylish and bold design with Verge’s unique technologies. Perfected down to the last detail, the model represents the most powerful and advanced electric superbike on the market with a range of 350 kilometres and a fast-charging time of just 35 minutes. In addition, it features an integrated rim motor inside the rear wheel, which is a patented and internationally awarded innovation developed by Verge. Just one hundred signature models will be produced, making it an extremely exclusive rarity.

“I know from experience what it takes to develop a vehicle that embodies speed, precision and elegance,” said Häkkinen. “I wanted to design the bike right down to the smallest detail rather than just picking the colour. Each bike is numbered and features an exclusive signature. This electric superbike represents the future of riding and is a testament to a life lived to the fullest!”

“We are extremely proud to have F1 legend Mika Häkkinen design the signature model,” said Tuomo Lehtimäki, CEO of Verge Motorcycles. “He is one of the greatest drivers of all time, and breaking boundaries and enjoying the thrill of speed is something that we very much share in common.”

The unique superbike designed by Mika Häkkinen is available for purchase as of today via the Verge Motorcycles online store in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Estonia, and Monaco. It can also be purchased from the new Verge Motorcycles flagship store in Monaco, which will open in connection with the Monaco GP and is also the electric superbike manufacturer’s first physical shop and showroom.
