Triumph Motorcycles has just completed the development of its all-electric TE1, and while it won’t be creating a direct production version, it will pave the way for the company’s future electric motorcycles.

The TE-1 was developed with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain, and the University of Warwick. It is powered by a single 175-hp electric motor, which is not far from some best-in-class 1000 cc supersport motorcycles.

This engine is powered by a small battery pack from Williams, which provides a power reserve of TE-1 up to 161 km. It can accelerate to 96 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and charging from 0 to 80 percent will take only 20 minutes.

Triumph notes that with a curb weight of 220 kg, it is 25% lighter than similar electric motorcycles currently on the market.

“The final tests of the Triumph TE-1 were carried out both on the dynamometer stand and on the racetrack.”

“We are incredibly proud to be able to share such positive results of the completion of the Triumph TE 1 project, where the demonstration prototype exceeded many of our initial goals and expectations,” added Nick Bloor, executive director of Triumph Motorcycles.
