TRIUMPH 750/900 TRIDENT - 1992


After the rout of the Eighties, Sir John Bloor, an english industrial, impassioned of car and motorbikes, buys Triumph to give this trademark life again. An ultramodern factory is built in Hinckley (close to Coventry). Since 1992, a range of models from 750 to 1200 cm 3 is proposed on the french market. 900 Trident will be the spearhead of this resurrected trademark. Very quickly this bike is heartily approved of all the motorcycle press. Its 3 cylinder engine becomes a reference.
Its defects: a perfectible finishing and a high placed centre of gravity.
Its qualities: a wonderful engine!
Triumph's revival bike!
