A veteran of the motor industry, the British company Triumph has released its first electric motor bike. The Trekker GT model with elegant design and powerful battery is suitable for trips around the city and for walks in nature.

Triumph Engineering launched its first motorcycle back in 1902, but Siegfried Bettmann, the immigrant from Germany, started selling bicycles ten years before. In 1983, she was declared bankrupt, and her name and production rights were bought by businessman John Blur. Since then, Triumph Motorcycles continues to produce motorcycles in England.

Recently, Triumph Motorcycles decided to return to its roots and built an electric bike – stylish, recognizable silhouette and hardy enough to satisfy the needs of lovers of outing, writes New Atlas.

For the Trekker GT model, the company, without further ado, chose Shimano components: Shimano DU-E6100 motor at 250 W (60 N * m); Shimano BT-8035 battery at 504 Wh * hidden inside an aluminum frame; bushings, gearshifts, brakes and a Shimano display with traffic information. The frame, however, is proprietary, as are the handles at the ends of a narrow and long steering wheel.

The battery charge is enough to help the owner drive about 150 km. The first Triumph 24 kg electric bike weighs with the battery, starting at $ 3,750. Available in three sizes and two colors.

There is no information about smart technologies like GPS, tracking system or connected applications.

Last year, Skoda introduced an unusual concept – either a bicycle, or a scooter, or an electric motorcycle. Instead of pedals, Klement has a pair of running boards. If you tilt them forward, the bike will accelerate. If back then it will slow down.
