1992 Triumph Trident 900[edit]

The 1992 MY Triumph Trident 900 sports a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, 885cc, three-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. The engine packs some serious punch at lower and higher revs, but somehow lacks power in the mid-range rpms. Capable of producing 100 horsepower and 83Nm of torque, it is still a fun ride which can easily get the adrenaline pumping.

Even though it is a pretty bulky machine, it still has simple and elegant lines defining it, and the naked body style suits the curves of the engine and the chassis.


1993 Triumph Trident 900[edit]

The 1993 MY Triumph Trident 900 is a fun and dependable naked bike, which has a surprisingly comfortable rider and even passenger position, thanks to the standard rear handles. With the addition of some Triumph saddlebags, it can even be transformed in a good weekend tourer, able to sustain long hauls without too much strain on the rider or the bike itself.

The suspension makes for a rigid, stable machine and, also, improves comfort, especially the rear mono shock, although the telescopic fork might be a bit of a hassle for some riders that are used to a more plush, Japanese-style suspension.


1994 Triumph Trident 900[edit]

For riders looking for a good tourer, but one that still keeps the classic 50's and 60's look, than the 1994 MY Triumph Trident 900 may be a suitable choice. Not a tourer in its standard form, yet, with the optional saddlebags available for purchase, it can easily be transformed into a bike to take you across continents during vacations, mostly because of the very comfortable seats, for both rider and passenger and because of good, reliable British engineering.

It sports a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 885cc, transverse three cylinder powerplant that produces 100 horsepower and 83 Nm of torque. The engine delivers satisfying amounts of power throughout the rev range, and still offers pretty good gas mileage, to not make too big of a dent in one's vacation budget.
