The Trident’s characterful and unique triple engine performance and celebrated handling will be even more enjoyable with the addition of Triumph Shift Assist adding to an already impressive specification and list of equipment for its class.

Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer, Triumph Motorcycles said: “Since its launch in 2020, this middle-weight roadster has reinvigorated this highly competitive category, selling more than 35,600 units worldwide.

“It’s triple engine and premium detailing at a great price, has been successful in bringing younger and new riders to Triumph, and just as ‘Slippery Sam’ once inspired a generation, we believe this special edition has the iconic style, extra technology and dynamic performance to appeal to today’s Triumph fans.”Triumph Unveils Trident 660 Special Edition

UNIQUE TRIPLE TRIBUTE EDITION DESIGN SCHEME

The Trident Triple Tribute has a stunning, modern design, inspired by the most celebrated Triumph triple bike of all time, ‘Slippery Sam’, which is the only motorcycle ever to win five TT production races in five consecutive years, from 1971 to 1975. The white, blue and red scheme with colour-matched fly screen and belly pan, stands out from the clean, minimal lines, beautiful silhouette and confident poise of the Trident. `

The distinctive tank design with number 67 race graphic surrounds the signature knee cut-outs, complementing the flowing seat line. With an impeccable attention to detail, the Trident 660 features high quality Triumph badges in both the headlight and taillight, and logo touches on the fuel filler cap, handlebar clamp and instruments, plus an inset aluminium Trident badge with diamond machined detailing. Body coloured radiator cowls, aluminium yokes & heel guards, body coloured fork protectors, tapered aluminium handlebars and teardrop shape mirrors, with five-spoke, black, lightweight, cast aluminium wheels, complete the eye-catching look.Triumph Unveils Trident 660 Special Edition

TRIPLE ENGINE PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE

Featuring a dedicated Trident tune, the popular 660cc triple engine was developed to deliver the character and performance benefits of a triple to riders in the middleweight sports naked category, providing the perfect balance of low-down torque, mid-range and top end power. A distinctive deep triple soundtrack is provided via a compact and minimal single sided silencer, with a premium stainless-steel finisher.

Fully Euro 5 compliant, the engine gives 81 PS peak power @ 10,250 rpm with a progressive, smooth and linear delivery, as well as 64 Nm peak torque @ 6,250 rpm. An accessory fit A2 conversion kit is available in Europe, including the A2-specific APS twist grip and a unique engine tune, which restricts peak power to 47 PS, or 35kW, and peak torque to 59 Nm. The bike can be de-restricted at the dealership, once the rider has completed their full licence.

The Trident’s smooth six-speed gearbox, with gear ratios and final drive that are optimised to make the riding experience easy and fun, is further enhanced by the addition of the Triumph Shift Assist, included as standard for this special edition. This quickshifter enables clutchless changes up and down the ratios, with an autoblipper on downshifts for fast, seamless changes.Triumph Unveils Trident 660 Special Edition

CLASS LEADING HANDLING

Renowned for its agile, sporty and confidence-inspiring feel on the road, the Trident has an accessible 805mm seat height and a low wet weight of 189kg. It is already leading the class, with a high specification of branded equipment including black Showa upside down forks delivering 120mm front wheel travel, and Showa preload adjustable monoshock RSU with linkage, which delivers 133.5mm rear wheel travel.

For great stopping power, the Trident has two-piston Nissin brakes with twin 310mm discs and Michelin Road 5 tyres, giving the rider confidence in all weathers.

The Trident has its own dedicated chassis with tubular steel construction, lightweight tapered aluminium bars and lightweight 17” cast aluminium sports wheels which combined with the high specification equipment, delivers a light steering weight and agility that’s really confidence-inspiring and easy to control.Triumph Unveils Trident 660 Special Edition
