Over the last few years, we’ve seen tremendous development in the electric motorcycle segment. Many new as well as well-established brands have shown their interest in these e-bikes. Yes, some of the world-renowned companies did take their own sweet time before dedicating time and money to develop electric bikes. Now, the latest brand that also wants an electric motorcycle is Triumph.
As per the news, Triumph wants to have a share of the pie and that’s why it has collaborated with some important names to work on its new project called the TE-1. Triumph plans to complete this project in a time of only 2 years. And its new partners will help it to attain this goal.
Williams Advanced Engineering, a branch of the Williams Group, behind the Formula 1 team, will be working on the batteries, Integral Powertrain will focus on developing a suitable electric motor, and the University of Warwick will do all the research work.
Speaking about the project TE-1, Triumph CEO, Nick Bloor, said, “Project Triumph TE-1 is one part of our electric motorcycle strategy, focused on delivering what riders want and expect from their Triumph, which is the perfect balance of handling, performance and usability.”
It’s good that Triumph is also entering the world of electric motorcycles. The future, if not completely then partially, is going to be full of electric vehicles. So the sooner brands accept this and start working for it the better.
Triumph has given us great petrol-powered motorcycles and with the kind of reputation it has worldwide, we’re pretty sure that it’s going to give us great electric motorcycles as well. All the best, Triumph!
