What to Expect

The Trident gets a useful half fairing but its silhouette is far too similar to Japanese efforts; something of a missed opportunity when they could have gone the more practical BMW RS route. The bike sold well so there are plenty on the used market but the fairing does allow the thing to be flogged along at 120mph plus, so wear is heavier than on the naked bike. It’s better than bikes like the FJ1200 but ain’t up to the sporting standards of the CBR600 and the like.
