Triumph Trident T160


In November 1974 the T150V was succeeded by the much-modified T160. Some of the changes were due to market response to the earlier Tridents, and some were to comply with American safety legislation. With forward-sloping cylinders, electric-start and gearshift moved to the left hand side, NVT were making a last ditch effort to save large scale production and to reduce the gap between the Trident and the Honda CB750. The T160 was manufactured for little more than a year, with production ending in early 1976, after which NVT collapsed completely. In total, 7,211 T160 models were built and sold in 1975.
