Tarform Luna cafe racer styling and features
Tarform Luna Racer Edition shares several of its features with the Scrambler Edition. The upper body, seat, and the under body are largely similar on both bikes. The key differentiators for Racer Edition include its knobby tyres, a sportier headlamp cowl, and firmer suspension. In comparison, the Scrambler Edition has retro styled headlamp and standard street tyres.
Both bikes are equipped with the same machined, single-piece handle bar. But the one on Racer Edition comes in a blacked-out theme. Other components like the wheels, foot pegs and swingarm are also done in black. These changes ensure a sportier look and feel for the cafe racer in comparison to the Scrambler Edition.
The equipment list includes a snazzy, round shaped full colour digital instrument cluster. It displays speed, riding mode, and battery percentage. Other key features include Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, all-LED lights, keyless start, blindspot detection with haptic feedback, three riding modes, 180° rear view camera, and regenerative braking. The bike is also equipped with a sound generator that works as a safety feature to protect road users and pedestrians.
