Project Triumph TE-1 e-Motorcycle is the result of collaboration between Triumph Motorcycles, Integral Powertrain Ltd., Williams Advanced Engineering, and WMG at the University of Warwick funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles through Innovate UK. This project has reached completion of phase 3, building the prototype for technology demonstration. This project is developed with a goal to create ground-breaking developments in electric motorcycle engineering featuring innovative, integrated technology. Phase 3 means that this project has finally integrated all of the latest innovations from project partner workstreams.
Triumph TE-1 e-Motorcycle features final chassis from Triumph Motorcycles, including frame, rear sub-frame, panels, wheels, cockpit, along with final drive system that include transmission and Gates Carbon belt drive, electronics, software, Öhlins USD cartridge forks, and Brembo M50 monobloc calipers. This motorcycle comes with final prototype from Integral Powertrain Ltd., it features integrated inverter and combined motor with silicon carbide switching technology. The battery pack comes from Williams Advanced Engineering, it features dedicated cell packaging for maximum center of gravity, DC-DC converter, vehicle control unit, integrated cooling, and styled carbon covers.
WMG has conducted pre-live trial simulation with all results indicate that Triumph TE-1 Electric Motorcycle has delivered all intended performance and durability. The test results exceed current benchmarks and targets set by UK Automotive Council for 2025. It looks like this motorcycle has great potential for future development.
