The following information is from Stark Future, however there is much debate whether the bike can deliver in terms of range and endurance in everyday riding environments. If we are able, we will attempt to put this to the test in the future.
According to Stark Electric Motorcycles
Our bike is easier to ride, requires less maintenance, can be ridden anywhere without disturbing neighbors and has higher performance than traditional gasoline-powered bikes.
The VARG is the most versatile and advanced motocross bike on the planet. It can be easily customized to your skill level and riding style at any circuit. Through the Stark VARG App you can create up to 100 ride modes, adjusting the power curve, engine braking, traction control and virtual flywheel weight according to your liking, and have five modes actively installed on the bike.
But, will you have enough power? The VARG boasts peak performance of 80hp, 30% more than a typical 450cc four-stroke. We also give you 938 Nm of torque on the rear wheel, more than double of any of the 450s. Control the VARG’s power. You can adjust from 1 to 80hp in just a few seconds through the Stark VARG App, an intuitive and comprehensive tool available in your display, or through your Apple or Android phone.
The VARG has the most energy dense production battery system in the world. 6kWh of battery capacity at less than 32kg, including the complete case, battery management system and all other internal components.
The range is similar to a 450cc motocross bike with a full tank. The VARG will comfortably complete a full ‘moto’ at MXGP intensity or up to 6 hours of easy trail riding and will fully recharge in 1-2 hours depending on the charger and power outlet.
At 110 kg / 242 lbs fully charged, the Stark VARG is lightweight. An important benefit of our electric powertrain is that it has a fraction of the inertia of a gas motor, providing you with a featherweight riding sensation.
Premium Suspension: Benefiting from a partnership with Kayaba and Technical Touch, the VARG’s suspension has been developed with 310mm of travel both for the front forks and rear shock. The standard linkage progression curve is optimized for comfort and stability whilst improving traction. There are seven different stock settings for riders within a 5kg weight margin, meaning that you choose the suspension adapted to suit your weight and ability.
