Tacita® presents the 2018 T-Race Enduro2018-02-06 08:54
Lighter and agile, the 2018 Tacita® T-Race Enduro is the ultimate fun machine.
The Italian brand Tacita® launches the 2018 model that thanks to its incredibly agile nature is perfect for the hardest mountains tracks and toughest off-road terrains. Faithful to the Italian design, synonymous of style, this electric motorcycle is also ideal for an every day use in the city, to commute from home to the office or to just stroll around in the evening.
Continuity and innovation
Strong of four-year presence on the market, the 2018 models have been radically improved: the power train, the controller, the clutch and the batteries are new. The Tacita® T-Race Enduro is lighter and agile. Whereas the chassis, appreciated by motorcyclists from all over Europe since its first edition, remains unchanged.
The new 9 kWh battery pack
The new Tacita® T-Race maintains the same weight and volume but doubles the range and covers 100 km (3 hours) of off-road tracks.
The new power train
Developed exclusively for Tacita®, the new power train offers a greater efficiency and driving pleasure. The 2018 version has been improved in all its parts and the final result is great in terms of weigh reduction too: 12 kg less for the 11 and 27 kW engine, 7 kilos less for the 34 kW power unit.
The balance between power, torque and traction remains one of the strongest point of Tacita® T-Race Enduro. The new engine has a better response to intermediate and high revs to deliver the highest riding pleasure and it offers an even more exciting sound for the rider. The 5-speed transmission with the renewed ratio of the first gear allows you to have always the best output in eco or power mode.
The new controller
Tacita® T-Race presents a completely new controller and a new hardware.
The new clutch
The clutch has been further improved and is lighter compared to the previous version.
The new integrated battery charger
The Tacita® T-Race Enduro 2018 is equipped with an integrated battery charger to be able to fill up on energy from any outlet during trips or in the everyday use. During off-road rides you can take advantage of the lunch break to recharge the batteries from any power plug even for domestic use sockets.
As in all Tacita® motorcycles there is a reserve function, which allows to ride for other 10 kms at reduced speed to reach the nearest electrical outlet, when the batteries are close to 10% of remaining charge.
Two maps: Eco and Power
The T-Race Enduro 2018 maintains the eco and power maps of the engine along with the engine brake engaged or disengaged, both selectable while driving. Eco is ideal for maximizing “fuel” efficiency and traction on slippery terrains, while Power is dedicated to brilliant riding. When the engine brake is disengaged, the bike will sail, while - when the engine brake is engaged, the regenerative effect is obtained at the simple release of the throttle, ride by wire, and greater safety even on longer and more demanding descents.
The T-Race Enduro maintains the single-shell frame split in chrome-molybdenum, a guarantee of resistance and flexibility even in the most extreme use. The centralization of the masses, obtained by withdrawing the electric motor positioning by 20 mm, contributes to the excellent handling, even at low speed.
Tacita® T-race Enduro is available in the 34 kW version with 85 N m of torque and the 27 kW version with 60 N m. For the holders of a car driving licence it is available also the 11 kW version.
The lines of the new T-Race were imagined following the logo lightning of Tacita along the path of the upper bodywork of the bike.
The colours of the new T-Race are red / black and full kevlar / carbon.
Prices starting from € 14,098 ex works VAT, roadside and local taxes excluded.
