TRIUMPH 750 TRIDENT T 150 - 1969

The T150 was launched at the end of 1968 after a long development, several prototypes having been tested since 1965. Unfortunately, at the same time, Honda presents the 750 Four, more modern and moreover much cheaper. Into the bargain, its aesthetics wasn't accepted unanimously. Many problems of reliability will also tarnish the reputation of this motorbike. The arrival of the powerful and reliable japanese motorbikes and, in particular, the 750 Honda penalized this noble powered machine. But, if perhaps the Trident had been launched 1 or 2 years earlier.... Will we ever know !
