Triumph reports the completion of the TE-1 electric project

Triumph announces the official completion of the TE-1 electric development project with the release of the final prototype test results, which exceed the project objectives and demonstrate the incredible success of this unique collaboration.

They are significantly exceeding the real-world range of the equivalent electric motorcycles available today, with a category-leading 100-mile (161 km) range, based on live testing and official projections.

175 HP PEAK POWER (130 KW / 177PS)

The TE-1 prototype delivers an excellent acceleration standard, achieving 3.6 seconds 0-60mph and an outstanding 6.2 seconds 0-100mph.

20-MINUTE CHARGE TIME (0-80%)

A game-changing outcome, faster than today’s equivalent electric motorcycles

485 LBS, WITH AN INCREDIBLE POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO

Up to 25% lighter than comparable electric motorcycles currently available.

STUNNING FINAL PROTOTYPE

The stunning final prototype demonstrates Triumph’s class-leading USPs and hints at the exciting future for Triumph fans worldwide.

  • The pure, unique and characterful new electric-Triumph soundtrack builds to a hair-raising crescendo.
  • The ergonomics, geometry and weight distribution of a Speed Triple, with the scale and visual impact of a Street Triple.
  • Triumph’s signature thrilling feel and neutral handling, with the throttle and torque delivery map equivalent to a Speed Triple 1200 RS.
  • A style and presence that is 100% Triumph, with signature design DNA.

PROJECT PHASE 4 COMPLETE

The extensive live testing program, which involved numerous assessments of the bike’s performance on the rolling road and on track, provided vital direction into the final set-up and calibration of the TE-1 prototype demonstrator, which has now been delivered on all of its targets and objectives.

Now officially complete, the live testing phase of the Triumph TE-1 project has seen the prototype demonstrator exceed expectations and achieve some incredible outcomes, delivering on all project objectives of accelerating electric motorcycle development and innovation, setting new standards for the sector overall, including the final battery and range performance. 

The expertise and capabilities developed throughout the project now pave the way for the exciting electric future to come from Triumph Motorcycles. 

CATEGORY-LEADING 100-MILE RANGE

Exceeding the real-world range of the equivalent electric motorcycles available today, the Triumph TE-1 prototype has achieved all project targets regarding the energy capacity of the Williams TE-1 project developed battery, with an incredible 100-mile (161 km) range, based on official testing and projections.

Regenerative braking has been successfully implemented for TE-1, with scope for further optimization, as well as greater efficiencies in the motor generator unit and transmission, which could improve the range further for the future of Triumph electric motorcycles.

PERFORMANCE THAT MATCHES THE SPEED TRIPLE 1200, WITH AN EVEN FASTER 0-100MPH

With a level of performance similar to the current Speed Triple 1200, the TE-1 prototype delivers an impressive 175 hp (130kW / 177PS) peak power, as well as peak torque of 80 lb ft (109Nm), for instant responsiveness, smooth, controlled power up through the rev range, and an utterly exhilarating ride.

With a level of performance similar to the current Speed Triple 1200, the TE-1 prototype delivers an impressive 175 hp (130kW / 177PS) peak power, as well as peak torque of 80 lb-ft (109Nm), for instant responsiveness, smooth, controlled power up through the rev range, and an utterly exhilarating ride.

With further refinement of the electronics, including the traction control system and front wheel lift control, the team responsible for delivering the TE-1 project anticipated that performance could be enhanced further, harnessing the full torque potential to enable even quicker standing start acceleration.

Daytona 200 Champion Brandon Paasch participated in the final testing phase, both in engine performance evaluation and with the final set-up of the prototype through track testing.  

“The throttle response on the TE-1 is kind of incredible, it’s very torquey, and when you first touch the throttle, it’s instant power, which is obviously what I love as a motorcycle racer – I love when it’s super-torquey and picks up right away, so for me, it was a great experience”, said Brandon. “I got to peg this thing from zero to 100% throttle, and it’s unbelievably quick. It pulls like crazy.”

TRIUMPH’S SIGNATURE THRILLING FEEL AND NEUTRAL, CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING HANDLING

With a throttle action and torque delivery map directly engineered from a Speed Triple 1200 RS, the track testing and dynamic rider assessments on the TE-1 prototype demonstrator deliver a level of handling that matches Triumph’s current triple cylinder internal combustion sports performance motorcycles. 

The TE-1’s exhilarating performance and acceleration, combined with its attractive and dynamic riding package, results in a bike that delivers all of Triumph’s signature feel and world-renowned neutral handling. This smooth, predictable ride is agile and nimble, excellent in the corners, with a controllable power that incites confidence and guarantees fun.

CHARACTERFUL NEW ELECTRIC-TRIUMPH SOUNDTRACK

The distinctive and thrilling soundtrack, building to the most spine-tingling crescendo – the Triumph TE-1 prototype’s pure and characterful sound- is considered more appealing and exciting than any of the equivalent electric motorcycles currently available, thanks to its unique helical gear pair primary transmission. 

With noise levels tested at Mira’s external noise measurement facility, the TE-1 successfully achieved all noise standards set by the R41 homologation tests for wide open throttle, cruising and urban. 

A STYLE AND PRESENCE THAT IS 100% TRIUMPH, WITH SIGNATURE DESIGN DNA

Instantly recognizable as a Triumph, the TE-1 prototype’s muscular presence utilizes signature design cues from the brand’s iconic modern history of performance motorcycles while being a future bike. Now updated with its final body panels and paint scheme, the prototype demonstrator brings a style and presence that is 100% Triumph, with all the brand’s signature design DNA, from its aluminium frame to its distinctive twin headlights and head-down focused stance and poise.
