The Swede’s electric motorcycle will hit everyone on the fingers

According to Stark Future’s founders, the company’s first model differs from its competitors. “We believe that this is the most technically advanced electric motorcycle in the world,” says CEO Anton Wass to Ny Teknik.

The Swede is previously behind Pierce, a listed e-commerce company in the motorcycle segment. But for his next venture, the startup Stark Future, Anton Wass chose to fly under the radar. The company recently launched its first electric motorcycle.

“Wolf” is a motocross intended for the race track. It weighs 110 kg and has a top power of 80 hp, with a torque of 938 Nm on the rear wheel.

– We believe that this is the world’s fastest cross in terms of performance / weight. And it is easier to handle compared to what is on the market today, says Anton Wass, CEO of Stark Future to Ny Teknik.

The company and their motorcycle appeared out of nowhere but immediately created big waves. Already a week after the launch, the value of the pre-orders was up to SEK 250 million.

– It’s a huge pressure. To my knowledge, this is the most successful motorcycle launch ever. And I think it could possibly be the biggest product launch for a new company – in that from the first time we are public, we sell for SEK 80 million during the first day, he says.

Anton Wass believes that the company has developed the most technically advanced e-bike to date. The driver can adjust the performance and have the opportunity to choose between different characters, from a 125 two-stroke to a four-stroke 250 or 450. You can also build your own ride modes with the exact engine braking and power curve you want.

With the exception of the battery cells, Stark Future has developed the entire powertrain in-house, which includes what is said to be the most energy-dense battery system in the world. It has a capacity of 6 kWh and weighs less than 32 kg including its housing. No range is specified, but the battery should deliver up to six hours of slower driving. It charges in 1-2 hours.

The company’s patent-pending technology includes the honeycomb structure in magnesium that connects the battery cells. Because they are immersed directly in the battery case, you get fewer parts, which gives a lighter and more compact case. The magnesium casing also helps to dissipate the heat generated in the battery cell directly to the air-cooled casing, and the efficient solution means that you do not have to have a heavy and complicated water cooling. Another patent-pending solution is the company’s pressure relief system.

– Our batteries are 100 percent waterproof. But temperature differences can change the pressure in the battery, perhaps up to 0.6-0.7 bar, and that is too much for one case to handle. Therefore, we have developed a fairly advanced non-return valve that can work in both directions, which also includes a diaphragm so that it can not become clogged, says Anton Wass.

The company’s head office is located in Barcelona, ​​where the motorcycles will be produced. The obvious reason is that the founder lives in the region, but Anton Wass states that Spain and its surroundings have very good subcontractors in the automotive industry.

– Then Barcelona is perhaps Europe’s motorcycle capital. And there is an enormous amount of experience here, both in design, development and production, says Anton Wass.

The choice to invest in a model aimed at cross-country skiers was undeniably right, and Anton says that sound is the biggest threat to the sport. In the last ten years, 20 percent of all cross-country courses in Europe have been closed due to noise. That problem is solved by Varg, which means that tracks can reopen, but also that existing facilities can avoid the restrictions where you are sometimes only allowed to drive once a week.

Within a year, Stark Future will release a street-registered enduro version of Varg, then the company aims to build a wide model range of street bikes and off-road bikes.
