Triumph Trident 660 Special Edition: Officially Unveiled

Triumph has introduced a special version of its Trident 660 motorcycle called the Trident Triple Tribute. In addition to several additional features this limited edition bike boasts a distinctive paint design. It's a tribute to the successful 'Slippery Sam' race bike from the 1970s, which was based on a Triumph Trident 750cc model and won many races at the Isle of Man TT.

Distinctive Features and Design

The Trident Triple Tribute showcases a unique blue, white, and red paint scheme, with the number 67 prominently displayed on the sides and top of the tank. This design differs from the conventional model because of the color-matched bellypan and flyscreen. Mechanically, the special edition retains the specifications of the standard Trident 660, powered by a liquid-cooled, 660cc, inline three-cylinder engine that delivers 81hp and 64Nm of torque. It is paired with a 6-speed gearbox and now comes standard with a bidirectional quick-shifter, an optional feature in the regular version.

The motorcycle's tubular frame is supported by a Showa USD fork and a preload-adjustable mono-shock, with braking provided by twin 310mm discs at the front and a 255mm disc at the rear. The Trident Triple Tribute is equipped with several riding aids, including two riding modes (Road and Rain) and adjustable traction control, accessible via the color TFT dash. All LED lighting, auto-cancelling indicators, and turn-by-turn navigation are additional features.
