In Phase 1, the company announced a collaboration with UK industry experts, academic leaders and Innovate UK, to develop specialist electric motorcycle technology and innovative integrated solutions. This was undertaken in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain Ltd and WMG, at the University of Warwick.
Phase 2 included the electric powertrain and battery prototype revealing the battery, as well as early styling sketches for the final prototype of the TE-1 project. The final construction of the prototype demonstrator was completed during phase 3, incorporating all the latest and final innovations from the project partners’ workflows.
The fourth and final phase consisted of live testing, which has now been successfully completed. Here’s an official teaser video of Triumph’s next electric prototype –

Design-wise, the TE-1 draws inspiration from the company’s Speed Triple motorcycle, including the twin-lug headlight configuration up front, a muscular body, a subframe bolt-on and a single-sided swingarm. The equipment list will include full LED lighting, as well as a digital instrument panel.
More details on the Triumph TE-1 prototype electric motorcycle are expected to be revealed closer to its full debut, so stay tuned.
