Final prototype test results have been announced for the Triumph TE-1 electric motorcycle, says Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE).
WAE says the TE-1 has a 100-mile range, based on live testing and official projections. The bike also achieves 0-60 MPH in 3.6 seconds, and 0-100 MPH in 6.2 seconds. WAE adds the bike has a 20-minute charge time (0-80%), and at 220kg (approx. 485 lbs.), the bike is up to 25% lighter than comparable electric motorcycles, the company says.
The motorcycle is a result of the collaboration between Triumph Motorcycles, Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain Ltd, and WMG, University of Warwick, and is funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles through Innovate UK.
