F1 legend Mika Häkkinen designs luxury electric superbike – Automotive Blog

Mika Häkkinen and Verge Motorcycles

Two-time Formula champion Mika Häkkinen has teamed up with Verge Motorcycles to launch a limited edition model limited to just 100 bikes.

Designed by Finnish star, it features a stylish and bold design combined with Verge’s unique technology.

“I know from experience what it takes to develop a vehicle that embodies speed, precision and elegance,” said Mika.

“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.”

Perfected down to the last detail, the model represents the most powerful and advanced electric superbike on the market with a range of 217 miles 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.

The bike is made of the highest quality materials on the market, making the final product truly unique. For example, it has carbon fibre fairings and a unique ceramic surface treatment that protects against scratches.

Full black shock absorbers and details combined with dark grey and silver surface elements complete the powerful and elegant look.

The bike is available for purchase 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. The retail price of the bike before tax is 80,000 euros (£70,000).

The partnership started at the beginning of the year, when Mika (also one of the investors in Verge Motorcycles) was appointed to the company’s Advisory Board.

“We are extremely proud to have F1 legend Mika Häkkinen design the signature model,” said says 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.”
