This new entry point into Triumph’s award-winning Triple roadster line-up will be competitively priced to deliver great value for a new generation of bike riders.
Triumph Motorcycles, the largest British motorcycle manufacturer, is bringing back the Trident model after a 45-year absence.
Introducing an all-new contemporary take on Triumph style & attitude, the Trident motorcycle design presents a pure, minimalistic form, with clean lines and uncluttered features, with signature tank knee indents and key cues from Triumph Motorcycles’ iconic Speed Triple’s muscular poise.
The Trident bike design prototype comes as a result of a 4-year development programme led by a dedicated team in Triumph Motorcycles’ design facility in the UK, Triumph’s global headquarters. Conceived and developed by the Hinckley design team, with additional styling input from Rodolfo Frascoli, the Trident brief was focused on delivering a distinctive, dynamic and attractive new take on Triumph style and attitude.
“Working with Rodolfo, a passionate Triumph fan who has brought Italian design flair to the Triumph design language – most notably with our latest generation Tiger 900, the team focused on evolving what a contemporary Triumph should be, building on our recognised strengths and design DNA, the character and distinctive original style,” said Triumph Motorcycles in a statement.
The Trident is built around a compact powerful Triumph triple engine, designed to bring all the advantages of a triple to the category for the first time, with the perfect balance of low down torque and top-end power.
The Trident will deliver rider ergonomics crafted to bring all of Triumph’s handling expertise, for the perfect balance of an engaged agile and dynamic ride, with an all-new chassis, married to great rider accessibility, comfort and confidence inspiring feel, including a natural upright riding position.
The design prototype also highlights another key aim with the integration of modern digital technology into the design that brings the features which riders in this world value and desire, in an elegant and easy to use way.
“Ultimately our aim was to bring a new take on character and style, alongside the accessible easy handling and quality Triumph is known for – at a price that’s really competitive,’’ said Steve Sargent. Triumph Chief Product Officer.
