    The Triumph TE-1 electric motorcycle prototype has completed its final testing phase, the brand has said. Triumph will reveal the results of the testing on July 12, which will include the TE-1’s motor performance, range on a full charge and the time taken to top up the battery. 

    The TE-1 has been under development for a while and Triumph has been releasing some information about its electric motorcycle from time to time. To begin with, the Triumph TE-1’s battery is made by UK-based Williams Advanced Engineering. The company had earlier said that the performance from the battery exceeds any other unit, in terms of power density. 

    The powertrain for the final prototype was developed by Integral Powertrain, and features a scalable integrated inverter and combined motor with silicon carbide switching technology as well as integrated cooling. The unit itself is compact, with the motor and inverter part of one package. That, in turn, has helped reduce the mass and volume of the drivetrain. The motor is said to develop 130kW or 180hp. Notably, it only weighs 10kg which is significantly lighter than the weight of traditional internal combustion engines. 

    Coming to design, Triumph had announced that the TE-1 will borrow design cues from the Street Triple and Speed Triple family. A look at the design sketches of the prototype shows bits like the headlights, tail-lights and the bodywork.
