At the London Design Museum, Triumph has revealed the new Design Prototype of the Triumph ‘Trident’, a new middleweight Triumph roadster that is expected to arrive at Triumph dealerships around 2021. The Triumph Trident design prototype is formulated and developed by the Hinckley design team with additional styling input from the Italian motorcycle designer Rodolfo Frascoli who is well-known for his work on the latest generation Tiger 900.
The Triumph Trident design prototype is a result of four years of development at Triumph’s headquarters where every single Triumph has been designed and prototyped. In terms of styling, the Trident prototype features a contemporary design language featuring a pure, minimalistic form, with clean lines and uncluttered features.
The Trident prototype features a classic rounded headlamp unit with a brawny fuel tank, signature knee recesses, mid-ship style exhaust, sculpted front fender and side panels giving the motorcycle a muscular poise with design cues drawn from the Triumph Speed Triple. The Trident not only focuses on a confident stance and poise but also boasts to deliver agile and dynamic rider dynamics with a chassis that has great accessibility for comfort and upright riding position.
The Triumph Trident is built around the brand’s iconic Triumph Triple engine which will be the first in this category and along with the triple engine, the Trident will get the perfect balance between low-end torque and top-end power accompanied by its iconic sound. The brand has not yet revealed any technical specification of the powertrain and more details on the same are expected to be revealed closer to its launch. The design prototype also integrates modern digital technology package into the design package, another key highlight for the Triumph Trident.
The brand has also revealed that Triumph is focused on delivering style with ergonomics and integrated technology with engine performance and is centred to deliver a complete motorcycle for a perfect ride at a competitive price.
