Triumph complete the TE-1 electric development project, with the release of the final prototype test results.
The Triumph TE-1, developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain Ltd, and WMG at the University of Warwick, has announced the completing its final prototype testing phase of the project as the company officially puts out the specification of the TE-1.
The TE-1 has only been revealed about 4 months ago as a final prototype going into testing phase, and just last month the Triumph announced the final testing phase, ahead of releasing the full spec sheet for their first electric motorcycle.
The extensive live testing program, which involved numerous assessments of the bike’s performance on the rolling road, as well as on track, provided critical direction into the final set-up and calibration of the TE-1 prototype demonstrator, which has now delivered on all of its targets and objectives.
Triumph announced the completion of their testing phase has exceeded the expectations set for the project, as the TE-1 was able to exceed the bar set for power, range and many more parameters.
Now officially complete, the testing phase of the Triumph TE-1 project has exceeded expectations, delivering on all project objectives of accelerating electric motorcycle development and innovation, setting new standards for the sector overall, including 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.Triumph Motorcycle – Press Release
Let’s take a look at the full released specification:
161KM / 100MILE RANGE
Significantly exceeding the real-world range of the equivalent electric motorcycles available today, the TE-1 reached a category-leading 161km / 100mile range, based on live testing and official projections.
With regenerative braking implemented for TE-1, for further optimization of range, as well as greater efficiencies in the motor generator unit and transmission.
130 kW (177PS / 175bhp) PEAK POWER
Packing a 130kW motor, with peak torque of 109Nm (80 lb-ft), the TE-1 generates 175HP from a light-weighing motor of only 10Kg.
The TE-1 prototype delivers an incredible acceleration, going from 0-60mph (0-100km/h) in 3.6 seconds, and an outstanding 6.2 seconds 0-100mph (0-160km/h).
20-MINUTE CHARGE TIME (0-80%)
A huge point for the TE-1 is their fast charging, with a game-changing outcome, going from 0-80% charge in just 20 minutes.
220kg, AN INCREDIBLE POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO
Up to 25% lighter than comparable electric motorcycles currently available, giving it an incredible power-to-weight ratio.
Despite having a physical size and scale comparable to a Street Triple, but with the ergonomics, geometry and weight distribution of a Speed Triple, the TE-1 delivers a thrilling ride, while inspiring confidence in the rider, keeping a nimble and compact driving experience.
Triumph also created a distinctive motor sound for the Triumph TE-1 prototype. With characterful sound to give more appealing and exciting experience, thanks to its unique helical gear pair primary transmission, Triumph was able to create a unique sound of their own.
STYLE THAT IS 100% TRIUMPH, WITH SIGNATURE DESIGN DNA
Instantly recognizable as a Triumph, the TE-1 prototype’s utilizes the company’s signature design tells from the brand’s history and tradition of performance motorcycles, while clearly being a bike of the future.
Now updated with its final body panels and paint scheme, the prototype demonstrator brings a style and presence that fully represents Triumph, with all of the brand’s signature design DNA.
“We are incredibly proud to be able to share such positive outcomes from the completion of Project Triumph TE‑1, where the prototype demonstrator has exceeded many of our initial targets and expectations. Everyone on the team is thrilled with the results we have achieved with our partners, and how the outcomes of the project will feed into the electric future to come from Triumph.”Nick Bloor, CEO, Triumph Motorcycles.
