The Triumph TE-1 electric motorcycle project is progressing even closer to production after the company showed off the latest design and announced that Phase 3 development is now complete.
And it’s been a long time coming.
We’ve been following the British manufacturer’s slow but steady march toward an electric motorcycle for what feels like ages now.
It started with the company testing the waters back in early 2019 as Triumph gently prepared their customer base for the inevitability of an electric motorcycle offering. Soon afterward, Triumph officially announced that the project had begun.
The next few years were spent with slow and sometimes unsteady updates as Triumph joined up with partners like Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), Integral Powertrain, and even the University of Warwick.
Triumph appeared to get a bit distracted in the middle of it, somehow managing to design and roll out an electric bicycle along the way.
