Verge Motorcycles, a trailblazer in the realm of electric superbikes, has once again pushed the boundaries with the latest upgrade to its flagship model, the Verge TS Ultra.
In a move that combines cutting-edge hardware and innovative software, Verge has taken motorcycle safety to new heights. The 2024 Verge TS Ultra now boasts six cameras and high-resolution front and rear radars, a game-changer in the world of motorcycling.
In a groundbreaking announcement, Verge introduced the Starmatter Vision, an advanced machine vision system that utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning.
This makes Verge the first motorcycle manufacturer globally to implement such sophisticated safety features. Beyond the standard traction control and ABS brakes, Verge’s bikes now offer a revolutionary low center of gravity, enhancing overall control and ensuring a safer riding experience.
According to Verge’s Chief Technology Officer, Marko Lehtimäki, “Verge is making riding even smarter and safer, improving the rider’s ability to observe the environment and the functions of the bike with the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning.”
The TS Ultra’s new cameras, combined with the latest software update, transform it into the world’s first motorcycle equipped with a sense of sight, acting as a guiding ‘whisperer’ during rides.
While autonomous driving has been a long-standing feature in the automotive industry, Verge recognizes the unique challenges of implementing it in motorcycling.
The upgraded hardware and software analyze the environment, notifying the rider of potential risks, such as approaching vehicles or lane changes. Verge’s commitment to safety is evident in its pursuit of technological innovations that enhance both comfort and rider well-being.
The Verge TS Ultra’s displays have also undergone a significant makeover. The larger tank display and the new Starmatter Dash revolutionize the rider’s interaction with the bike. Offering a visual and intuitive interface, the dash simplifies the management of essential functions, provides real-time updates on the bike’s status, and even displays the rearview camera image when the turn signal is activated.
Mark Laukkanen, VP of User Experience at Verge Motorcycles, emphasizes, “Verge is developing the world’s most advanced electric superbikes that focus on the riding experience. We do not want to compromise on that. Starmatter Dash provides a visual and intuitive interface, giving the rider a clear real-time view of the bike’s features and status at a glance.”
With the 2024 Verge TS Ultra, Verge Motorcycles has not only elevated the standards of electric superbikes but has also redefined the rider’s relationship with their machine, creating a safer and more exhilarating riding experience.
