The company first announced the project in March last year. It took slightly over a year for the brand to develop the prototype and make it ready for unveiling after completing the necessary tests. This upcoming electric motorcycle is going to be the first-ever all-electric model from the iconic British brand. Also, it is expected to pave wa6y for several other electric motorcycles from the brand.
Speaking about the design, the upcoming Triumph electric motorcycle will arrive with a bold and highly aggressive styling that is similar to the current products in its portfolio. There will be an overall naked appearance along with bifurcated LED headlamps, a tab like an instrument cluster, and a sleek tail section with an LED taillight. The front part of the body looks chunky like the standard ICE motorcycles. The battery and electric motor are positioned underneath the seat and located at the centre of the bike to maintain the centre of gravity.
The motorcycle runs on alloy wheels wrapped with meaty high-performance rubbers. Despite being an all-electric motorcycle, the upcoming Triumph EV is expected to come promising high-performance just like its ICE powered siblings.
