27 kWh e 168 miglia di autonomia per la nuova cruiser elettrica italiana
Columbus, Ohio. USA. 15 settembre 2017. Tacita è lieta di annunciare il lancio della T-Cruise, in una prima mondiale all’AIMExpo 2017 che si terrà a Columbus, Ohio, dal 21 al 24 settembre.
Dotata della tecnologia di ultima generazione di Tacita, la nuova T-Cruise viene fornita con la batteria da 27 kwh in grado di percorrere 168 miglia ed è destinata a diventare una pietra miliare nella mobilità elettrica. Infine è disponibile un cruiser elettrico paragonabile ad una motocicletta a benzina.
La T-Cruise è il primo Cruiser progettato da Tacita, studiato appositamente per le esigenze degli appassionati di motociclismo che amano guidare un Cruiser e godere dell’emozione dell’accelerazione e dell’emozione del cambio.
Pierpaolo Rigo, co-fondatore di Tacita:
“Siamo davvero felici di lanciare la nuova linea della T-Cruise sul mercato americano. Tacita T-Cruise è una moto elettrica finalmente paragonabile ad una motocicletta a benzina. Grazie alla batteria da 27 kWh, è possibile percorrere 168 miglia, l’autonomia media di un motociclista. Grazie al caricabatteria rapido (fino al 40% e fino all’80%), la carica di una batteria diventa un piacere e può essere fatta ovunque. La T-Cruise cambierà il modo in cui gli americani si sentono sulle motociclette elettriche. Con la T-Cruise è possibile guidare il cambiamento e andare verde con il piacere di prestazioni e autonomia”.

Rear: Metzeler Marathon 140/80-15
Soft compound for high grip allowing to exploit great torque output from the electric engine with total control, with the benefit of tread pattern design that offsets the central groove’s alignment, providing very high mileage for never-ending fun riding.
Gearshifting done Smart.
In order to have the best gear ratio for every situation and at the same time reduce the overheating of the engine and the consumption of electricity, Tacita® has created a unique transmission gearbox that thanks to the lower ratios, allows the torque to increase, causing the inrush currents to decrease. The carefully developed longer gears will make the most out of the engine’s maximum peak, removing every compromise and keeping efficiency at maximum levels.
Starting in 1st gear is not mandatory on a Tacita® T-Cruise, starting on a higher gear is possible if the situation requires (for example reducing uphill skidding in the event of a steep climb). Speed gears are very useful downhill as well, allowing the bike to slow down while minimizing the use of brakes and preventing overheating. Gearshifting on a Tacita® T-Cruise is done smart. bike.
Transmission: 5-speed gearbox with hydraulic clutch.
Final transmission: Belt Drive or Chain.
Ready when you need it.
In a Tacita® T-Cruise the use of the clutch at the start and at the stop is optional. The clutch is used to reduce the torque when necessary, as well as to change gears. When the electrical system is on and the accelerator is released, the electric motor does not rotate (unlike the internal combustion engine) so the bike is static, which is why it is not necessary to pull the clutch when you stop. The clutch will be ready when you need it.
Choose your brakes.
The T-Cruise is equipped with combined brake system (CBS) for safety and a superior braking experience. With the push of a button you can activate the regenerative engine braking that allows recharging the battery when decelerating.
Front brake: 280 mm with Brembo master cylinder
Rear brake: 240 mm disc
Fit for everyone’s tastes.
Fitted with 3-positioned adjustable footpegs, the Tacita® T-Cruise offers the best in class riding position in the Cruiser segment. Stretched legs, straight up, you choose.
Priced for Everyone. Choose yours.
T-Cruise is offered with 3 different battery packs, depending on your range needs, you may choose the entry level with 7,5 kWh for $10,999, 15 kWh for $14,999 and 27 kWh for $24,999 MSRP.
Safety first, all the way.
We chose to run at 120 Volt. Why?
On the electric motorcycle, batteries deliver current that goes to the controller and is converted into alternating current. According to the technical standard IEC 60479-1, the voltage that is considered to be dangerous is more than 120 V. In order not exceed this safety limitation, Tacita® engineers decided that the total voltage of batteries needed to be less than 120 V (Regulation ECE No.100). Tacita® thinks safety first, all the way.
