Triumph TE-1: Range, acceleration and other technical specifications of the electric motorcycle unveiled
While most automakers around the world are scrambling to shift their lineup towards future-proof EVs, the segment of all-electric motorcycles is also growing continuously. The well-known British manufacturer Triumph for example has been working on its electric motorcycle called the TE-1 for quite some time, as it was already unveiled as a sleek prototype back in February of this year.
As part of the fourth development phase of the electric motorcycle, the technical specifications of the Triumph TE-1 have now been officially revealed on the company's website. According to these preliminary specs, the electric two-wheeler has 130 kW or 175 hp of peak power, which result in an acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. The sprint to 100 miles per hour is supposed to take no longer than 6.2 seconds. Just as quick is the proclaimed charging performance of the Triumph TE-1, which can be charged from 0 to 80 percent in just 20 minutes.
Furthermore, the Triumph TE-1 only weighs 485 lbs according to the manufacturer, and this low weight also contributes to a respectable range projection of exactly 100 miles per charge. The electric motorcycle's maximum torque output is rated at 80 lbft, but the company describes it as a “smooth controlled power” and advertises neutral handling and a predictable ride. Unfortunately, the motorcycle maker has not revealed any additional information regarding the eventual price or the release date of the Triumph TE-1.
