Tacita was founded in 2009 to design and manufacture revolutionary and one-of-a-kind electric and performance motorcycles. The brand name Tacita is derived from the Latin name for the goddess of quiet in Roman mythology.
Inspired by the Goddess of silence, Tacita designs and builds motorcycles that care for the environment and their riders. The motorcycles from Tacita are authentic off-road machines.
Tacita launched its first performance electric scooter in Western Europe last year and has sold more than 150,000 units of electric scooters. Tacita is an Italian manufacturer of electric scooters.
The “T-RACE” and the new “T-CRUISE” are the two best selling electric motorcycles Tacita is currently trading in European countries.
To penetrate the Indian market, Tacita has decided to team up with Okinawa Autotech, which has been manufacturing electric scooters and other electric vehicles for a very long time.
Tacita is famous for making electric sports cars and high-performance electric scooters. Tacita’s electric performance scooter can generate six horsepower and go from 0 to 100 kmph in just 4 seconds.
