Triumph Motorcycles, a British premium motorcycle company, has disclosed information on the TE-1, its first-ever all-electric model. The 160 km range of the Triumph TE-1 is advertised. The motorcycle also claims to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 3.6 seconds. Peak power for the all-electric motorcycle is stated to be 175 horsepower. The TE-1 prototype, according to the motorbike company, surpassed expectations and produced some amazing results. So, let’s have a closer look at this bike.
Features of Triumph TE-1:
- Expect the Triumph TE-1 electric motorcycle to weigh roughly 220 kg, despite the company’s boasts that it will be a lightweight machine. When compared to the 250 kg Harley-Davidson LiveWire One, it is 30 kg lighter. The electric motorbike is advertised as being 25% lighter than similar models, such as the Harley-Davidson LiveWire One and the Zero SR/F streetfighter
- Although the manufacturer states a 160 km range for the Triumph TE-1 electric motorbike, it is not stated what the ranges would be for city and highway riding.
- The motorcycle will be equipped with a DC rapid charging system that, according to claims, will enable EVs to charge from 0 to 80% in just 20 minutes. Additionally, the battery will be charged while braking thanks to regenerative braking technology. The business wants to improve the motorcycle’s performance even more.
In reference to the electric motorcycle, Andrew Cross, Helix Chief Technology Manager, expressed his happiness at the conclusion of the final testing phase for the TE-1 motorcycle and the continued validation of the effectiveness and performance of the Scalable Integrated Modular Inverter.
Not just Triumph but other established two-wheeler manufacturers are developing electric motorcycles. While Ducati has made impressive work on an electric racing motorcycle for the FIM MotoE, Harley has already unveiled its LiveWire One. It also revealed the existence of an electric sports bike targeted towards the mainstream market. However, Ducati hasn’t provided a precise project timeline.
