2021 Triumph Trident: An Electrifying Dual-Sport For All Riding Styles
The 2021 Triumph Trident is the British manufacturer’s newest edition to its 2021 lineup. The main motivation behind the Trident was for Triumph to fill some gaps in their lineup by providing a be-all-end-all mid-displacement roadster motorcycle to market, and to have a platform to build other models off of for the future. Before the Tridents release, the smallest displacement motorcycle offered from Triumph was the 765c Daytona / Speed Triple; meaning new and intermediate riders had an impassable barrier-to-entry when it came to joining the Triumph family.
The 2021 Trident is a dynamic and stripped down motorcycle featuring a minimalistic approach to design despite loads of tech and safety features. The bike is agile and provides riders with ample fun despite the smaller engine-size when compared to the other models in Triumph’s 2021 lineup.
Triumph has had extreme success with their previous inline-three engine configurations; this motorcycle is no omission. The Trident comes equipped with a torquey 660cc inline-three engine capable of producing 78 horsepower and 49 lb-ft of torque. An advantage of this new inline-three engine is the 10,000 mile service intervals, making it a perfect option for newer riders looking for a low cost of ownership over prolonged periods.
Other great features include a full colour TFT display, standard ABS, traction control, Showa upside down forks with an adjustable monoshock RSU, and two riding modes all bundled into a lightweight and flickable package. This new motorcycle comes in four total colour options and has great parts support from Triumphs 45 dedicated OEM accessories. For the price, this is an unbeatable value and welcomed addition to the Triumph motorcycle legacy.
The 2021 Triumph Trident starts at $7995 USD / $8995 CAD.
