When most people think of a motorcycle, it is assumed that you have to be an expert to ride and maintain it. However, there is a new wave of bikes on the market that are perfect for experts and those who just want to have a fun, relaxed ride. In addition to being much easier to ride and maintain than the traditional bike, Stark Future’s new electric motocross bike, the Stark VARG, is also at the forefront of the sustainability movement.
Stark Future is proud to lead, challenge and inspire the motorcycle industry in sustainability. The hugely successful VARG launch broke records with €8 million in launch day sales and 1,000 bikes sold in just 24 hours, ultimately earning €25 million in the first week for the Barcelona-based company.
“Anyone who knows how to ride a bike can ride the VARG,” says the company. “Yet the bike has the capabilities to push the fastest riders in the world to their limits.” The VARG is Stark Future’s very first product to hit the market, and the success of the launch proves that consumers are definitely interested in innovative technology that pushes the boundaries. The VARG is faster than any of its competitors, with a peak output of 80 hp, which is 30 percent more than a typical 450cc four-stroke. Riders can tune from 1-80hp in seconds using the Stark VARG app, a comprehensive tool available on the bike’s display or via your smartphone.
While motorcycles are generally known to pollute the environment and contribute to global warming, the VARG generates zero CO2 emissions and uses less plastic than any other bike. “We will also continue to reduce CO2 emissions in production and transportation,” the company spokesperson said. “And find ways to reduce plastic use even further.”
As for the maintenance of the VARG, it is quite different from your usual motorcycle. The average motorcycle requires many trips to the mechanic, while the VARG requires the same level of maintenance as a standard bike. As the company says: you no longer have to be a mechanic to own a motocross bike.
Moving forward, Stark Future has many ideas for new vehicles and new technologies to develop. “Innovation is our main goal,” they explained. The company also sees its technology impacting the sport of motocross by making it more inclusive through reduced maintenance and ease of use. With the Stark VARG grossing 35 million in just two weeks, it’s breaking records and making our planet a better place at the same time. Be on the lookout for more off-road and on-road electric vehicles from Stark Future that are sure to set a precedent for performance, durability, and ease of use and maintenance.
