Triumph has recently introduced a special edition of its Trident 660, which is aptly named the Trident 660 Tribute Special Edition. This unique model is a nod to Hinckley’s impressive lineage of inline-three engines and celebrates the iconic 1970 Trident race bike, fondly known as ‘Slippery Sam’, a five-time Isle of Man TT champion. The tribute edition captures the essence of Triumph’s racing heritage and technological advancements, making it a standout addition to the Trident series.


Unfortunately, the list of changes doesn’t run as long as the name of the bike. This special edition model comes with a unique livery that features a striking combination of vibrant red and sleek black hues, enhancing its overall aesthetic appeal. Additionally, it is equipped with a stylish flyscreen that not only adds a touch of sophistication but also provides enhanced aerodynamics for a smoother ride. The belly pan, designed with precision, complements the bike’s sleek profile while offering added protection. Another notable feature is the Triumph Shift Assist, a cutting-edge technology that ensures seamless gear changes for an exhilarating riding experience. Despite the minimal alterations to the design, the bike exudes a captivating charm in the eye-catching racing livery, leaving enthusiasts yearning for more thrilling innovations.

The company hasn’t announced any plans to launch the Slippery San Trident 660 in India yet, but if Triumph does decide to do so, expect it to carry a slight premium of the standard sticker price of Rs 8.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

No modifications have been made to the 660cc liquid-cooled inline-triple engine, which delivers 80 horsepower and 6.4 kgm of torque. The electronic components and other features also remain unaltered. However, it would have been beneficial if the standard model’s 41 mm Showa forks and preload-adjustable monoshock were upgraded to adjustable units. Additionally, Triumph could have enhanced the package by including an Arrow exhaust as a standard feature.


Triumph is currently offering the Tribute at the standard model’s price in the US and just a $30 premium in the Canadian market. Quite a steal, don’t you think? This limited edition won’t be around for long, slated for just a year, with hopes of it reaching India soon. The Triumph Bonneville T120 Black Edition aims to honor the iconic 1950s motorcycle, symbolizing a significant chapter’s close for this esteemed British brand.

The Bonneville T120 Black Edition stands out as a limited model, boasting a darker and more assertive aesthetic than its standard version. Its blacked-out color palette, accented with subtle chrome touches, exudes a sleek and contemporary allure. This design homage nods to the original all-black aesthetic of the classic Bonneville.
Despite its dark aesthetic, the T120 Black Edition retains all the classic attributes that define it as a true Triumph motorcycle. Featuring a 1,200cc parallel twin engine, this bike offers seamless power and torque, ideal for urban commutes and long highway journeys. With modern fuel-injection technology, the engine guarantees peak performance and fuel efficiency.

The T120 Black Edition also features a comfortable and upright riding position, making it an ideal choice for long rides. It’s equipped with premium suspension systems, including adjustable front forks and twin rear shocks, to provide a smooth and responsive ride on any road surface. And the dual-piston Brembo brakes ensure precise stopping power when needed.

In addition to its powerful performance, the Bonneville T120 Black Edition is also packed with modern technology. It comes standard with ABS, traction control, cruise control, heated grips, and LED lighting. These features not only enhance the riding experience but also improve safety on the road.

But the T120 Black Edition doesn’t sacrifice style for technology. Its elegant black and chrome design pays tribute to the classic Bonneville motorcycles of the past, while still giving it a modern edge. The deep black paint is contrasted by hand-painted gold pinstripes, adding a touch of luxury to its sleek appearance.
