2025 Triumph Trident 660 Special Edition – A Tribute to IoM TT Trident

The 2025 Triumph Trident 660 Special Edition has been revealed, as a tribute to the IoM TT (Isle of Man TT) Trident which won the races from 1971 to 1975.

Being a special edition, it is resplendent in the historic white, blue and red paint scheme with graphics, complete with number 67. This colour scheme was the colour on the TT-winning bike, dubbed “Slippery Sam.”

However, it is not just a paint scheme as Triumph has added some goodies that are otherwise only available as options. First, there is a colour matched flyscreen on top of the headlamp. Next, an aluminium belly pan underneath the engine, and Triumph Shift Assist quickshifter with auto blipper, as standard.

Other mechanical parts of the 2025 Triumph Trident 660 Special Edition remain unchanged. The engine is a 660cc triple which produces 80 hp at 10,250 RPM and 63.7 Nm of torque at 6,250 RPM. That is a huge 4,000 RPM spread between maximum torque and horsepower, meaning the engine pulls well anywhere in the RPM range!

The forks are still Showa upside-down, non-adjustable members, while the Showa monoshock at the rear is adjustable for preload only. Dual two-piston Nissin calipers up handle braking up front. Even the tyres remain unchanged from the Michelin Road 5.

Electronic features include ABS as standard, ROAD and RAIN riding modes, colour TFT screen, switchable traction control, immobiliser key security system.

Pricing starts from USD 8,595 (RM40,645.76) which is the same price as the standard Trident 660. However, there is different pricing in other countries, as it sells at a slightly higher price in Canada.

2025 Triumph Trident 660 Special Edition or also known as the 2025 Triumph Trident 660 Tribute will definitely make its way to Malaysia.

Only question we have is: Why didn’t Triumph launch a Daytona 660 Tribute instead?

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
