    I am surprised there is not already a thread for this. It looks pretty interesting to me....

    we just got one for my son. He cant ride it yet because covid caused bike schools to postpone a2 category exams
    Hell it is a LOT of the bike for money. We got 10% discount since it is 4th bike we bought from our dealer (I had Tiger and now Scrambler 1200 and Bobber). I did not get chance to ride it myself but it is very comfy to seat on. It feels lighter than street tripple and it is really wel made. Fit and finish and overall looks heads and shoulders above mt7. As soon as weather permits and demo unrestricted available I will give it proper test ride. I myself do not need one but just to try. One thing - rear shock cleatly budget. But as we all know triumph knows how to make them handle so we'll see

    ah forgot He opted for heated grips crash protectors bt kit and quickshifter. We got 10% off on that too. Only restriction a2 comes with no discount. And it is legally reversible to full power with simple software re-flash

    I didn't realize you could get the Trident with an A2 restriction. How, exactly, do they "depower" the bike? Throttle restriction plates or ECU black magic?

    Looking forward to seeing the "Trident vs. MT-07" comparison video. We may have a new middle weight champion.

    Yes, very likely. That's how they adjusted the Tiger 850 sport.

    justlooked up in invoice and supplies. Apparently restriction kit consist of re tune but also includes different twist grip thingy. Which make sense since throttle hand should rotate same distance but rpm range is lower and it is ride by wire. And to switch - still will fit in 15 mins (undo one screw unplug normal grip plug restricted and redo screw.

    Has anyone added the Triumph Connectivity Module as a DIY project? Is it plug and play or does the dealer need to do something with the coding?
