The Future of Motorcycle Safety: Verge Motorcycles’ 360-Degree Sensors

Verge TS Ultra

Verge Motorcycles is revolutionizing the upcoming iteration of its TS Ultra model. Going forward, every electric motorcycle in this lineup boasts six cameras and cutting-edge front and rear radars with high-resolution capabilities. These advanced features harness the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to grant the vehicle a remarkable sense of sight. The introduction of these revamped models, showcased at the prestigious CES 2024, marks a significant leap forward from the Verge TS electric bike of 2020, which was expertly crafted by F1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen, as well as the limited edition TS Pro California variant.

The cutting-edge software and intelligent platform that drives all Verge TS Ultra electric motorcycles is called StarMatter. StarMatter harnesses the power of data, robust processing capabilities, and enhanced sensory functions to generate machine-learning models that elevate the previous iterations of Verge TS Ultra into intelligent electric motorcycles with the ability to make decisions. Thanks to the integration of smart built-in hardware, the new models of Verge TS Ultra electric motorcycles can receive updates over the air or online, similar to updating a smartphone.

Furthermore, the latest electric TS Ultra models from Verge Motorcycles feature a Human Machine Interface, which enables riders to control various aspects of the vehicle’s behavior using buttons. Through this interface, riders can personalize their ride modes, manage charging settings, control the motorcycle’s core functions, and access diagnostic information. The upgraded model also boasts enhanced GPS and accelerometer capabilities, along with the inclusion of cellular connectivity, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi features. The dash display presents essential riding information on a compact screen, while the intuitive physical handlebar controls allow riders to activate different ride modes and utilize the new self-heating hand grips designed for colder seasons.

The advanced hardware of the new Verge TS Ultra electric motorcycles, including six cameras and high-quality front and rear radars, enables the systems to detect nearby vehicles and potential obstacles at a greater distance. Verge Motorcycles emphasizes that the upgraded TS Ultra can identify potential road hazards and accidents, such as a rapidly approaching car from behind. In such situations, the system promptly alerts the rider, empowering them to take evasive action. Additionally, when making turns, the dash display automatically displays the camera feed of the surrounding area, assisting riders in detecting blind spots and ensuring safer maneuvering.

The new TS Ultra models from Verge Motorcycles incorporate additional features such as advanced traction control, ABS, and customizable limits. These enhancements provide riders with an anti-brake-locking system to prevent lock-ups, a traction control system that restricts torque to ensure optimal grip and a custom ride mode that allows riders to adjust the maximum speed and torque according to their preferences. Furthermore, for riders who require ample storage space for their belongings during their journeys, the lockable storage compartment beneath the single seat offers a convenient solution. Additionally, this compartment is equipped with a USB-C port, enabling riders to charge their devices while on the move.

Verge Motorcycles remains committed to its hubless motor design, which sets it apart from traditional motorcycles. Despite the introduction of new upgrades, such as advanced features and technologies, the TS Ultra models continue to eliminate the need for conventional moving parts like chains, belts, and cogwheels, as well as gearbox oils and cooling liquids. This design approach results in significantly reduced maintenance requirements, as described by the brand as “almost zero maintenance.” In terms of digital maintenance, the updated hardware of the motorcycle allows for remote diagnostics and over-the-air software updates, ensuring continuous improvement of the superbike’s performance. From a specifications standpoint, the electric motorcycle offers an impressive range of up to 375 kilometers on a single charge and is capable of delivering 1,200 Nm of torque.
