Last month, Triumph motorcycle unveiled the prototype of the Trident roadster globally and now the motorcycle is in its final testing stage. In the late 70s, Triumph joined hands with BSA (Birmingham Small Arms Company) and came up with the Trident and the BSA Rocket 3. Triumph also relaunched the Trident name with a 900cc Triple in the early 90s, but the motorcycle was discontinued in 98.
The Triumph Trident is expected to launch sometime in 2021. This new roadster will be the cheapest offering from the Triumph lineup and will be placed under the Street Triple 765. The company is expected to reveal Trident's production model by the end of this year and has also shared images of some test mules.
As seen in the images, the to-be production model stays true to the design prototype the British brand showcased earlier. The Trident gets a round headlamp cluster with wide handlebars, a curvy fuel tank with knee indents, step-up seat, raised tail, exposed mechanical bits, a compact exhaust and a new instrument cluster, which might be fully digital one. The 2021 Triumph Trident has been styled by Rodolfo Frascoli (who previously worked with the company on the new Triumph Tiger 900).
The Triumph Trident also gets an all-new tubular steel chassis to help save cost. Suspension duties are handled by a USD fork at the front and a mono-shock unit at the rear. Brakes are also expected to be sourced from Nissin and the motorcycle will feature dual-channel ABS along with traction control.
Mechanically, the Triumph Trident is expected to be powered by the 675cc, liquid-cooled triple-cylinder motor seen on the last generation Street Triple and Daytona. The engine will meet the BS6 emission norms and is expected to produce around 88bhp of power and 65Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox and will also be equipped with a slipper clutch. The company has not revealed any details about the electronic hardware, but the motorcycle is expected to get three riding modes.
Thoughts About The All-New Triumph Trident Prototype
The Triumph Trident looks fantastic and we are happy to report that the production variant will stay true to the prototype showcased earlier this year. Once launched, the Trident will go up against the likes of the Kawasaki Z650 and the Honda CB650R.
