Triumph announce Trekker GT E-bike

Triumph Motorcycles first foray into the electric bike market comes in the form of the Trekker GT E-bicycle

TRIUMPH Motorcycles’ history comes full circle in 2020, as the firm returns to its bicycle making roots with the launch of the Trekker GT E-bicycle.

Triumph Tiger 900 video review

The touring machine is the first E-bicycle designed by Triumph and the first Triumph branded bicycle since the mid-1970s. The bike is a sleek and comfortable looking machine, more at home crossing continents than it is at flying down muddy mountain tracks!

The Triumph Trekker GT features the latest generation of electric drive weighing in at just 2.88 kg, the Trekker GT offers a smooth and responsive drive and a day-long range of c.150km per charge through its 250w 60Nm torque-rich Shimano powertrain that comprises a Shimano Steps E6100 motor and a fully integrated Shimano E8035 504Wh battery.

The bike has been designed by Triumph’s in-house vehicle styling team and features a very familiar two-tone paint scheme in familiar Triumph motorcycle colours of Matt Silver Ice and Matt Jet Black – very reminiscent of the Thruxton RS released last year. The Trekker GT also features dedicated blacked-out features and detailing across the chassis hardware, wheels, pedals, seat post and handlebar stem, plus cast aluminium Triumph badging.

Pricing as yet is TBC, although we can tell you the bike will be available in the UK, United States and in Europe with the exception of Germany and Austria. Availability in some Asian markets is to be determined.

Judging by the lack of mention of country of manufacture I'm guessing China. So I won't be buying one. Please pass my comment on to Triumph.

More likely Thailand, or one of the other smaller Asian countries.
But I'm betting you wouldn't have bought one no matter where they were made. (Psst, Triumph knows that too.)
