The oldest British motorcycle brand Triumph, created in 1902, is trying to keep up with the latest trends. The company has shared some details of its TE-1 electric motorcycle project.

The two-wheeler in development since 2019 is the fruit of Triumph’s collaboration with three other UK companies, with funding from the UK Zero Emission Vehicle Authority.

The power reserve on a single charge of a 15 kWh battery is approximately 190 km. The battery is said to be able to charge from zero to 80% in about 20 minutes, and the control system maintains a constant power level at any charge level.

Triumph plans to start serial production when batteries become cheaper. The manufacturer does not name the exact mark, limiting itself to this wording: “The motorcycle will enter the market when we can reduce the price to what we think people are willing to pay.”

The company plans to start testing the TE-1 prototype later this year.
