130kW (177PS/175bhp) Peak Power

This little zapper churns out power with an incredible 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds and an outstanding 0-100mph in 6.2 seconds.

Fast charging to a new level

A game-changing charge time, of just 20 minutes can get you as much as 80% of maximum juice.

Lighter than a feather

Weighing in at a mere 220kg, the power-to-weight ratio is phenomenal. Up to 25% lighter than comparable electric motorcycles on the market.

A beautiful outcome

The final prototype demonstrates Triumph's class-leading design and gives you an insight into where Triumph may be going in the future. This outcome boasts a unique pure power and characterful engine, with a futuristic soundtrack that produces a spine-chilling adrenaline rush. The ergonomics have been modelled on the Speed Triple with the scale visual aesthetic of a Street Triple. Triumph's signature thrilling feel, handling and torque delivery come directly from the Speed Triple 1200 RS. A style almost familiar to you, the TE-1 could fit into the range seamlessly with Triumph's signature styling DNA.

By completing a huge list of tests, the model now achieves everything the project directors could have hoped for and exceeds targets in every division. The expertise and capabilities developed through the project now pave the way for the world's electric motorcycle future.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
