The Triumph Trident name is from the brand's history, and the old Trident was in production from 1968 till 1975. The old Trident was powered by a 740 cc, air-cooled, overhead valve straight-three engine, which put out 58 bhp of maximum power at 7,500 rpm. The Honda CB750 was the original Triumph Trident's main competitor. In its resurgence as the most affordable Triumph, the new Trident will also take on Japanese roadsters in 2021, but all with parallel-twin engines.
