Transportation For The Future
As urban cities around the world become increasingly congested, people need smarter and greener ways to commute. Tarform Motorcycles, an innovative company, dedicated to building a new kind of electric motorcycle—combining advanced manufacturing with green mobility and smart connectivity, is focused on solving that need.
One of the main objectives at Tarform is to move away from traditional manufacturing. In order to do that, the automotive startup incorporates additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence and bio engineering as part of its production process. The result speaks for itself. As Tarform sees greater optimization in production and efficiency, it may be en route to redefining how vehicles are being made.
Now, the Brooklyn, New York-based company is in the process of developing its first concept-prototype. The product is slated to launch in the second quarter of 2018.
