Introducing Triumph’s first electric bicycle, Trekker GT

Triumph Motorcycles is known for its beastly roadster motorcycles, but the manufacturer does not want to miss the trend of environmentally friendly vehicles also. Triumph Motorcycle has introduced an electric bicycle or e-bike called Trekker GT. It is the first e-bike designed by Triumph and takes advantage of Shimano’s engineering and development in its battery and transmission.

Trekker GT was designed by combining e-drive technology and the unique style of Triumph. To define this electric bike, the first thing we look at is the 2.88 kg of its transmission, which gives the Triumph Trekker GT a smooth response. The battery is designed together with a bicycle frame made of 6061 hydroformed aluminum or, more precisely, located next to the crankset.

Meanwhile, the Shimano E8035 battery, with a capacity of 504 Wh, is claimed to be able to cover a distance of 150 km (93 miles). The user can benefit from a Shimano Steps E6100 250W motor that produces 60 Nm of torque.

Regarding the design, the Trekker GT, specially designed by the Triumph team, shows an integration of the transmission and the other components in an elegant, minimalist, and stylish chassis. The narrow handlebar (68 cm) and the Selle Royal Vivo saddle says Triumph provides optimal ergonomics for bicycle users. Its total weight, including the battery, is 24 kilograms.

The team presents a distinctive silhouette characterized by contemporary design and elegant lines. The bicycle parts are wrapped in two-tone in Matt Silver Ice and Matt Jet Black, with dark details throughout the bike, such as wheels, pedals, seat post, handlebar stem, and a Triumph emblem in cast aluminum.

A number of features are also embedded in this electric bicycle. For example, in the middle of the handlebars, there is a screen to present information on speed, distance, and travel time. In addition, it shows information about the gear, the clock, and the estimated range and battery indicator.
