Triumph brings pedal power to the party with new Trekker GT e-bike
With urban mobility making headlines as people try to avoid public transport, Triumph Motorcycles have taken their first steps into the e-bike market, revealing a new £2950 road-biased model called the Trekker GT.
Planned for immediate release in the UK, the upright bike gets an aluminium frame, fitted with a Shimano Steps E6100 motor, capable of providing 250w (about 0.3bhp) of assistance. An integrated Shimano E8035 504Wh battery slots within the Trekker’s frame down tube.

What’s more, the motor also produces an impressive 44lb.ft of torque, with a claimed range of around 100 miles - not bad for a little box that weighs 2.88kg.
Away from the motor, the Trekker also has other nifty features including cast aluminium Triumph badging, LED lights, a blacked-out pannier rack and an ABUS Pro Shield frame lock. Optional extras are also available in the form of a 270mm U-lock, chain and ground anchor, as well as a Muc-Off cleaning kit.
Triumph are aiming to make the Trekker GT available to the UK, United States and European markets with immediate effect, however this will not include Germany or Austria. Availability in Asia-Pacific markets is still being finalised.
