Triumph Trident – the Best Production Racer Ever


In this well researched and comprehensive book, the reader is taken through the full range of triple models, including the BSA Rocket 3, the Trident and the A75 Hurricane, as well as the technical changes that took place, and the fascinating range of specials and one-offs.

There’s also advice on the Triumph dating system (no, not that type of dating system, but how to work out the age of your triple).

Of special interest will be the previously unseen original drawings from Ogle Design and Craig Vetter, the designers behind the original T150 and the iconic Hurricane respectively, including an amazing design sketch of a rotary engine Triumph too.

As Roy Maddox conducted more and more of the extensive research for the book, it became clear that the story of the triples was directly linked to the success of the triples on the race circuits around the world, and at the Isle of Man TT in particular.

As this book reveals, the Triumph Trident T150 was a milestone in British and world motorcycle design that also achieved huge success on the racing track.

Launched over half a century ago, the Triumph Trident T150 is appreciated more today by its many owners and motorcycle enthusiasts than it was in its production heyday.
