POSITIVE FEEDBACK FOR T&D ELECTRIC POWERTRAINS AT MOTORCYCLE LIVE
The NEC, Birmingham, saw the first public test rides of electric off-road motorcycles equipped with T&D’s complete powertrains
T&D, innovators in complete electric motorcycle powertrains, captivated at Motorcycle Live, the UK’s largest motorcycle event, held at NEC Birmingham from 18th- 26th of November. At stand 2A18 in Hall 2, the team showcased two bikes from MECR and Cheerdmoto equipped with their Storm FE01 off-road drive system, along with actual-size models of individual components for visitors to explore.
The exhibited motorcycles are exclusively powered by T&D’s complete powertrains, seamlessly integrating motor, battery, controller, HMI, and charger, for optimal performance. Both were made available at alternate times on the Electric Test Ride Zone for the show’s visitors to try out for themselves, with an overwhelmingly positive reception. Riders enjoyed the “fun, nippy feel” and sizeable torque, while one seasoned motorbiker stated, “I’ve always liked the way a motorcycle sounds, but the acceleration of an electric bike is surprising.”
