The popular and capable Triumph Trident is coming soon to Australia as a limited edition model with Slippery Sam graphics – the bike which won five time at the Isle of Man, the legendary mountain circuit where racers take on not just each other but a closed roads at racing speeds. It’s extremely dangerous, with rock walls and little run-off, yet the events draw racers back year after year.


The Trident Triple Tribute Special Edition, as it’s properly called, is not only good looking but also inlcudes the Triumph Shift Assist (quickshifter), bellypan and colour-matched flyscreen, standard.

It’s priced at $14,990 ride away, should be here in May, and there won’t be many.

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 2024, 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 the most famous Trident in history, ‘Slippery Sam’.
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 colour matched flyscreen and bellypan 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 said: “Since its launch in 2020, this middleweight 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.”



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 colour-matched flyscreen and bellypan, 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 tail-light, and logo touches on the fuel filler cap, handlebar clamp and instruments, plus an inset aluminium Trident badge with diamond machined detailing. Body-coloured radiator cowls, aluminium yokes and heel guards, body-coloured fork protectors, tapered aluminium handlebars and teardrop-shape mirrors, with five-spoke, black, lightweight, cast aluminium wheels, complete the eye-catching look.



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 sports-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 LAMS-approved engine gives 54PS (39.8kW) peak power at 8750rpm with a progressive, smooth and linear delivery, as well as 59Nm peak torque at 5000rpm.
The Trident’s smooth six-speed gearbox, with gear ratios and final drive that are optimised 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.


Renowned for its agile, sporty and confidence-inspiring feel on the road, the Trident has an accessible 805mm seat height and a wet weight of just 189kg. It is already leading the class, with a high specification of branded equipment including black Showa upside down forks delivering 120mm travel, and Showa preload adjustable monoshock shock with linkage, which delivers 133.5mm travel.
For great stopping power, the Trident has two-piston Nissin brakes with twin 310mm discs and Michelin Road 5 tyres, giving the rider confidence in all weather conditions.
The Trident has its own dedicated chassis with tubular steel construction, lightweight tapered aluminium bars and lightweight 17-inch cast aluminium sports wheels which, combined with the high specification equipment, delivers a light steering weight and agility that’s really confidence-inspiring and easy to control.


The Trident 660 provides all LED-lighting, 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, colour TFT screen, integrated with a ‘white-on’ black’ LCD display. For enhanced security, an engine immobiliser is built into the key.


The Trident Triple Tribute can be tailored with a range of 32 accessories, including protection and care; technology; style and detailing; comfort and practicality; and security.
Protection includes rubber tank pad, moulded 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; stylish minimal scrolling LED indicators; and a tyre 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.
Other premium accessories include billet machined bar-end mirrors 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 kilometre warranty as the bikes themselves.


The new Trident Triple Tribute will be available from $14,990 rideaway, with a class-leading service interval of 16,000 kilometres (or 12 months, whichever comes sooner), which contributes to the incredibly low cost of ownership. Customers can find out more at TriumphMotorcycles.com.au or place an order with their local Triumph dealer. Bikes will be arriving in dealerships – in very limited supply – from May.
