Triumph Reveals 2025 Trident 660 Tribute Edition

The Triumph Trident has an interesting history of existing, disappearing, and then returning before vanishing once more. In 2020, the company introduced the Trident 660 which has done well for itself, selling a total of 35,600 units.

With 2025 coming around soon(ish), this new Trident will turn five years old. To celebrate its first half-decade, Triumph has unveiled the limited-availability 2025 model year Trident 660 Tribute Edition.

This special edition Trident 660 will be available for that one year only. The main factor setting it apart from the standard version is its new, Slippery Sam-inspired paint scheme and graphics.

In case you’re unaware of Slippery Sam, this famous racing motorcycle dominated the TT races at the Isle of Man in the ‘70s. Based on the 750cc Triumph Trident, it won five consecutive production TT races between 1971 and 1975.

The Trident 660 Tribute Edition pays homage to this classic bike with a distinctive white, red, and blue (and black) paint job. On the tank is a large red-and-white “67” graphic, as the Slippery Sam once had.

The included-as-standard fly screen and belly pan are color-matched, and various other components also bear appropriate colored details to bind the bike’s look together. The tank and knee pads, lights, fuel cap, and a couple of other places bear Triumph and/or Trident logos.

In addition to looks, the Tribute Edition Trident also has a couple of mechanical and electronic additions. The bike ships standard with Triumph Shift Assist quickshifter, which works both up and down.

In other departments, the Trident 660 Tribute Edition is the same bike as its standard equivalent. It bears a 660cc liquid-cooled in-line three engine (producing 81 horses at 10,250 rpm and 47 lb-ft of torque at 6,250 rpm), Showa fork and preload-adjustable monoshock, Nissin brakes with ABS, a color TFT screen, and two ride modes. The slim frame offers a 31.7-inch seat height.

What’s excellent about the Tribute Edition is that it doesn’t cost a penny more, retailing for the same $8,595 MSRP as the standard version. If you’re considering purchasing a Trident 660, you have no reason not to go for the special edition once it hits dealerships this April.

Really, Triumph is celebrating the Trident by giving a gift to riders. That’s something we hope to see from more manufacturers.
