Triumph’s Most Affordable Bike TRIDENT Revealed; Launch Next Year

Triumph Trident launch has been confirmed for 2021. It will be one real interesting mid sizer that we can look forward to…

Out of the blue Triumph has unveiled its next upcoming motorcycle which will be called as Trident. It has even gone on to show a prototype reveling how will it look.

The upcoming model will resurrect the ‘Trident’ nameplate for the brand – which it used to sell in the 1970s. The bike will adorn streetfighter styling. It will sit under the very successful Street Triple line-up and form a new entry into the Triumph’s nameplate.

Trident will use a three cylinder engine which we believe could be a derivative of the 2020 Street Triple S’ downsized 660 cc motor. For reference, this A2 legal motorcycle produces 94 bhp of peak power and 66 Nm of max torque from its 12 valve, DOHC engine. Trident’s numbers could be closer to or slightly lower than these.
