Triumph Motorcycles has launched a striking new special edition Trident 660, featuring a dynamic, contemporary graphic scheme designed to appeal to new Triumph fans, and extra technology including Triumph Shift-Assist.

New for 2025, the Trident Triple Tribute celebrates Triumph’s legendary triple engines and will be available for one year only. This hugely popular naked roadster is now available with a distinctive graphic scheme, which is a contemporary take on Triumph’s iconic white, blue, and red racing scheme and features the distinctive ‘67 number graphic, which once adorned ‘Slippery Sam’, the most famous Trident in history.

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. Included as standard, the color matched fly screen and belly pan add even more unique character to the Trident’s distinctive style, showcasing the exceptional standard of fit and finish that is synonymous with Triumph.

Paul Stroud – Chief Commercial Officer, Triumph Motorcycles

“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.”

 

UNIQUE TRIPLE TRIBUTE EDITION DESIGN

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 color-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 cap, handlebar clamp, and instruments, plus an inset aluminum Trident badge with diamond machined detailing. Body colored radiator cowls, aluminum yokes & heel guards, body colored fork protectors, tapered aluminum handlebars, and teardrop shape mirrors, with five-spoke black lightweight cast aluminum wheels, complete the eye-catching look.

 

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 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 80 HP (81 PS) peak power @ 10,250 rpm with a progressive, smooth, and linear delivery, as well as 47 LB-FT (64 Nm) peak torque @ 6,250 rpm.

The Trident’s smooth six-speed gearbox, with gear ratios and final drive that are optimized 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.

 

CLASS LEADING HANDLING

Renowned for its agile, sporty, and confidence-inspiring feel on the road, the Trident has an accessible 31” (805mm) seat height and a low wet weight of 416 lbs. (189kg). It is already leading the class, with a high specification of branded equipment including black Showa upside down forks delivering 4.7” (120mm) front wheel travel, and Showa preload adjustable monoshock RSU with linkage, which delivers 5.3” (133.5mm) rear wheel travel.

For great stopping power, the Trident has two-piston Nissin brakes with twin 12” (310mm) discs and Michelin Road 5 tires, giving the rider confidence in all weathers.

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

 

HIGH SPECIFICATION TECHNOLOGY

The Trident 660 provides ABS, Road and Rain riding modes, switchable traction control, and a ride-by-wire throttle, for crisp, precise throttle response, as well as a practical, multi-functional, color TFT screen, integrated with a ‘white-on’ black’ LCD display. For enhanced security, an engine immobilizer is built into the key.

 

MAKE THE TRIDENT TRIPLE TRIBUTE YOUR OWN

The Trident Triple Tribute can be tailored with a range of 32 accessories, including protection and care, technology, style & detailing, comfort & practicality, and security.

Protection includes rubber tank pad, molded frame and engine cover protectors, and CNC machined fork protectors, as well as a Muc-Off cleaning kit, all weather cover, and battery charger. With the technology accessories, customers can add a convenient under seat USB charging socket, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Designed specifically for the Trident, customers can add a set of water-resistant luggage, with quick release tank bag and tail pack.

Billet machined bar end mirrors, and parts to add to the detailing. The Trident is also pre-prepared to be able to be fitted with the internally wired heated grips, which include a neatly integrated button, and the ergonomically shaped pillion grab handles.

Designed hand-in-hand with our motorcycles and manufactured to the same exacting standards, all Triumph accessories have the same two-year unlimited mileage warranty as the bikes themselves.
