The Ford Bronco isn’t the only beloved motor vehicle set to make a triumphant return in the 2021 model year. Triumph Motorcycles has just announced that it is bringing back the Trident after a 45-year absence too.
The design prototype for the rebooted roadster bike made its public debut earlier this week at the London Design Museum. While an art museum may sound like an unlikely location to unveil a motorcycle, it makes more sense once you look at the new Trident’s eye-popping design.
First introduced in the late ’60s, the Trident helped push street motorcycles forward and ushered in the era of the superbike. Although it was released to critical acclaim, it was soon overshadowed by the release of the Honda CB750. The bike would be discontinued in 1975, but that didn’t stop it from earning itself a dedicated fanbase, one that’s only grown in the decades since.
