Triumph TE-1 electric bike prototype has finally broken cover. The UK-based premium bike maker has also announced the completion of the third phase of development of its battery-powered model. It was developed by Triumph Motorcycles and Williams Advanced Engineering.

On the outside, TE-1 draws design cues from the company's much popular Speed Triple RS model. It has a very familiar twin-pod headlight at the front which reminds of the Speed Triple RS. The bike has been built around a bolted subframe, and there is also a single-sided swingarm that lends it a premium appeal.

Some of the main hardware components on the bike include the use of Ohlin-sourced upside-down front forks and a rear mono-shock for suspension duties at the rear. For braking, it uses twin rotors at the front bitten by Brembo-sourced calipers and a single disc at the back.

At the heart of the Triumph TE-1 sits WAE’s 15kWh battery pack juicing up a powertrain with scalable integrated inverter and combined motor with silicon carbide switching technology and integrated cooling. This motor is likely to produce somewhere close to 180 PS. It will have a full-charge range of close to 200 km. Phase four of testing of the motorcycle is slated to end by mid-2022. This stage will include testing the bike on-road as well as race tracks.
