The Trident name returns to the Triumph stable as a learner-approved motorcycle in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The previous Trident was a porky 900cc triple with 72.9kW of power and weighing 235kg, while the new lightweight Trident is a 660cc triple weighing 189kg with power limited to 39.8kW to meet the Learner-Approved Motorcycle System.
It will arrive in Australia and New Zealand in February 2021 starting at $A10,999 (plus on-road costs).
While that’s expensive for a learner bike, Triumph boasts that it will be one of the cheapest in its category to maintain with a whopping 16,000km service interval.
Learners will also benefit from safety features such as the slip and assist clutch which prevents rear-wheel lock-up on downshifts, road and rain riding modes and switchable traction control.
