‘The perfect ride’ – that’s the ultimate (and lofty) goal of Triumph Motorcycles Ltd., the world’s largest UK-owned bike brand.

Whether a fan of the oldies ‘n’ goldies or drooling for newer zero-emission scoots, Triumph can now say they cater to riders from all walks of the community – and it’s thanks to their incubating electric prototype, which is finished the final testing phase.

The TE-1, which was begun “to create developments in ‘specialist electric motorcycle engineering and innovative integrated technology design,’ has been in prototype phase since May 2019, with a previous target two-year completion date,” according to CycleWorld.

Obviously, global restrictions and a worldwide pandemic put a bit of a wrench in the 2021 debut date but we like to think the TE-1 would be all the better for the extra time in the oven – especially considering the brand projected ‘perfect balance of handling, performance and usability’ at the start of the project.

The most interesting part of the TE-1 (apart from the stunning aethetics) is the heart of the thing.

ADVRider logs Phase 2’s initial tests on the engine “far exceed[ing] current benchmarks and industry targets,” with Phase 3 creating the “…final chassis, including frame, rear sub-frame, cockpit, panels, wheels, and final drive system.”

That included the addition of a swanky “Gates Carbon belt drive, electronics, Öhlins USD cartridge forks, unique prototype Öhlins RSU, Brembo M50 monobloc calipers, and Triumph motorcycle control software” – all elements to accompany a bike that is, by all appearances, top-shelf quality.

But will the specs stand up to the rest of the build?

Sounds interesting. I’d probably buy an electric motorcycle before an electric car at this point in my life.
