The Trident has been built from the ground up, and while the engine is a 660cc inline-three, Triumph says it is not the same engine as the Street Triple S. With 67 new components added to the mix, the new engine is capable of producing 81 PS of power and 64 Nm of torque. It gets a 6-speed gearbox to which a bi-directional quickshifter can be added as an option. (Source: Triumph)

In terms of ergonomics, seeing as how the Trident is a naked sport, its riding position is fairly relaxed. Suspension comes from premium Showa USD separate function forks and preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking is handled by a Nissin two-piston caliper on dual 310 mm discs up front and a single piston brake at the rear. (Source: Triumph)

The Trident will also get a lot of other features including ride-by-wire that adds two riding modes, adjustable traction control, but no switchable ABS. The bike’s seat height stands at 803 mm and weighs 189 kg at the kerb. (Source: Triumph)
