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.
