The motor in the Triumph TE-1 prototype produces 130kW, or nearly 180hp, while weighing only 10kg.
Triumph has announced that the TE-1 electric motorcycle prototype has completed its final testing phase. On July 12, Triumph will reveal the results of the testing, which will include the TE-1’s motor performance, range on a full charge, and charging time.
The Triumph TE-1 has been in development for some time, and Triumph has been releasing information about it from time to time. To begin with, the Triumph TE-1’s battery is manufactured by Williams Advanced Engineering in the United Kingdom. The battery’s performance, according to the company, outperforms any other unit in terms of power density.
Integral Powertrain designed the powertrain for the final prototype, which includes a scalable integrated inverter and combined motor with silicon carbide switching technology, as well as integrated cooling. The unit is small, with the motor and inverter integrated into one unit. As a result, the drivetrain’s mass and volume have been reduced. The motor is said to have a power output of 130 kW (180 hp). It is noteworthy that it only weighs 10kg, which is significantly less than traditional internal combustion engines.
When it comes to design, Triumph has stated that the TE-1 will be inspired by the Street Triple and Speed Triple families. The prototype’s design sketches reveal details such as the headlights, taillights, and bodywork.
