Electric Everything: Verge and the Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition Motorcycle

The Flying Finn is back and swinging a leg over a seriously exclusive scoot that boasts zero emissions, the world’s very first hubless motor and a design aesthetic lauded to be “Seemingly ridden straight out of Tron”.

The F1 champion will reportedly receive the ultimate perk along with his appointment to the Verge Advisory Board as both an investor and a designer with Verge’s Mika Häkkinen Signature Edition Motorcycle, which will reportedly only have 100 units produced.

“I know from experience what it takes to develop a vehicle that embodies speed, precision and elegance,” states The Pack’s coverage of Häkkinen.

“Instead of just choosing the color, I wanted to design the bike down to the last detail. Each motorcycle has a unique signature and a serial number. This electric superbike is a symbol of the way transportation will develop in the future and a testament to a full life.”

The Häkkinen Signature Edition uses the TS PRO as the foundation for their Signature design, producing an astounding 1000 Nm of torque through top speeds of 200 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. That’s incredible at a fast charge of 35 minutes.

Blacked-out suspension, carbonfiber detailing complete with ceramic coating, double Brembo calipers, a two-tone leather finish on the saddle, and a signed bit of nostalgia from the man himself, and it’s no wonder Verge’s CEO is “extremely proud to have Mika Häkkinen, a legend of Formula One, created the signature model.”

“[Häkkinen] 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,” adds Tuomo Lehtimäki.
