A couple of weeks ago, VitalMX went to Barcelona, Spain, to throw our legs over a pre-production Stark Future Varg, an electric motocross bike that was introduced to the public only a few weeks ago but has already amassed over 10,000 pre-orders from customers around the world. Designed with the lofty goal of becoming the market leader, the hype surrounding the Varg was through the roof after the introduction video hit YouTube.
In addition to the confident message and features breakdown presented by the charismatic duo of Communications Manager Benjamin Cobb and CEO and Founder Anton Wass, the 17-minute video featured some impressive footage of the bike in action in the hands of two-time World Champion Sebastien Tortelli, American racing and freeride hero Josh Hill, and FMX star Mat Rebeaud. Needless to say, we were intrigued by the Stark Future Varg and accepted the invitation to test one with wide smiles on our faces, but boarded the 11-hour flight to Spain with cautious enthusiasm and plenty of skepticism. After all, our previous experience with the Alta Redshift left us with lukewarm impressions of electric motocross bikes, and much of the propaganda surrounding the Stark Future Varg almost seemed to good to be true. So, you ask, what did we think about the Stark Future Varg at the end of our solid day of testing? Hit the play button to find out!
