Triumph Pulls The Cover Off Of Its 180HP All-Electric TE-1 Moto Concept

Mar 24, 2021

Category: Rides

Back in the Spring of 2019, Triumph announced an ambitious multi-year project to bring a cutting-edge fully-electric motorcycle to market simply known as the TE-1. Nearly two years later and the Hinckley firm has now revealed the fruits of this collaborative effort with the debut of a TE-1 prototype electric powertrain system and an accompanying chassis.

In addition to the University of Warwick and the UK’s Integral Powertrain Ltd, the TE-1 project also received help from the Williams Advanced Engineering crew, which has lent its expertise to help Triumph deliver a working, bench-tested prototype electric motor that generates 130kW (180hp) while only weighing 22lbs (10kgs). Shrouded in carbon fiber battery covers, this proprietary powertrain features a new scalable integrated inverter that benefits from the use of silicon carbide switch technology and is housed in a frame that was developed specifically for the battery and electric motor setup. What’s more, Triumph has also revealed early renderings of the TE-1, which is clearly derived from the British brand’s Street and Speed Triple models. Triumph also aims to have a working prototype test mule being put through its paces by the end of 2021. For more information, you can check out the full press release linked below.
