The “Tacita project”, from Tàcita, Latin name of the Roman goddess of silence, springs from the desire to develop a motorbike which respects the environment
and the people around us, yet being a true machine for real off-roading.
After twenty years of passion for both recreational and competitive enduro, our goal was to build the perfect electric enduro bike, which would be able to compete with traditional motorbike combustion engines, giving sensations of pure riding, yet being moved by a completely “no-emission” electric engine.
Tacita was born in 2009, to produce a new enduro bike with electric propulsion performance, whilst being innovative and unique in its characteristics.
Since then, our effort has focused on research, engineering and design, to create an Italian bike with temperament, unique in its kind.
The result is the new “T-RACE”: passion, nature, strength, silence, respect, emotions.
Chi sceglie Tacita sceglie uno stile di vita.
Why the speed gears? In order to have the best gear ratio for every situation, reducing the overheating of the engine and the consumption of electricity. In fact, the lower ratios allow the torque increase, so that the inrush currents decrease, while thanks to the longer gears you will be able to make the most of the engine maximum peak, removing every compromise and keeping the maximum efficiency.
A main point is that the speed gear with an electric engine does not need to shift gear frequently, because when the proper speed for the road is engaged, you can keep it.
Furthermore you are not forced to start with the first gear engaged, as it can be useful for reducing uphill skidding, instead. Speed gears are very useful downhill, because when you engage lower gears, the bike slows down and this allows lesser use of brakes, preventing overheating, enhancing full control of the bike.
You do not need to use the clutch at the start, because 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 does not move, which is why it is not necessary to≤ pull the clutch when you stop. The clutch is then used to reduce the torque, when necessary, and to change gear.
