With an expected peak power output of almost 180 horsepower, Triumph's electric motorcycle prototype TE-1 will likely throw shade at direct competitors like the American icon Harley-Davidson and its electric two-wheeler called LiveWire.

The booming market of electric two-wheelers is not just limited to rather pedestrian kick scooters like the just announced Jeep Razor RX200. Even iconic companies like Harley-Davidson have entered this market segment over the past few years with products like the LiveWire, and another well-known motorcycle maker is apparently also making strides in the development of its first electric motorcycle.

The UK-based manufacturer Triumph has now given a first look at its all-electric motorcycle with the short but memorable name TE-1. The development of the TE-1 was officially announced back in 2019, but after the recent completion of its third project phase, the British company is now finally ready to show off an apparently working prototype in gorgeous pictures as well as a short teaser trailer on YouTube which can all be found embedded below this article.

The Triumph TE-1 is supposed to live up to its sporty design by delivering great performance, but the exact technical specifications of this electric bike are still unknown. However, the rumored continuous power output of 107 horsepower and a peak output of approximately 174 hp suggests that the Triumph TE-1 will be a forceful but likely also very pricey motorcycle.

Triumph has further specified that the upcoming project stage four will encompass road and track testing of the TE-1, after which the company plans to finalize the setup and calibration of the electric motorcycle. The release date and price of the Triumph TE-1 have yet to be announced as well.
