TRIUMPH 750 TRIDENT T 160 - 1975

This is the ultimate evolution of the Trident. The most obvious changes are a complete restyling and a 10 angled forward engine similar to the BSA Rocket 3 or the race versions like the legendary " Slippery Sam ". Others modifications are the addition of an electric starter, an improved oil circulation, the switch to a left foot gearchange, etc. , but an unchanged power. With the T160, the Trident finally arrived at maturity. But the damage has been done, the bad reputation was in all minds. It will survive until 1976.
