Triumph is returning the Trident name to its stable with a “middleweight” motorcycle which is now in final testing.

We know it is powered by a liquid-cooled triple-cylinder engine, but there are still no technical details about engine size or power.

However, it could come to Australia and New Zealand in two versions early next year, one of which is power-restricted for learner-approval like the Street Triple 660.

It certainly won’t be as big as the previous 1990s Trident which came in 750cc and 900cc variants.

Triumph has now released images of the reborn Trident in final testing around their headquarters at Hinckley UK.

The company promises it will have “class-leading technology as standard”.

Triumph unveiled a Trident design prototype at the London Design Museum in August and now we can see the bike in its production guise, albeit with camouflage paint to disguise the contours.

We can see it has a stubby underslung exhaust, remote rear fender as is now the trend with many modern naked bikes, monoshock rear, Showa forks, double-sided swingarm, cable clutch, round headlight and single-pod instruments.

The company has been very secretive about this model, even though they have been working on it for four years.

They stress that it was designed at Hinckley, but we suspect it will be built in Thailand like the rest of their fleet as they streamline global production and wind down the Hinckley factory.

The date and time for the reveal of the production Triumph Trident will be announced in coming weeks.
