NEPTUNE PROJECT

Triumph brings back to life a name full of successes, that of the Trident, our atelier echoes it, paying homage to the glorious Slippery Sam with the only name that we feel to approach next to that of the famous trident, we present the Neptune project.  

2 SOULS, SAME EMOTION

Neptune S

A sharp middle fairing with strong reminders of the past, engineered and designed to be installed without having to cut or irreversibly modify your bike. Together with the fairing will be flanked by a kit of handlebars.

Neptune R

It’s the stage 2 of our kit, it is applied over the half fairing of the S version, giving you the possibility to have 3 bikes in 1. (Standard / Half fairing / Full fairing). The kit will also include a seat cover in real racer style.

SAY HALLO TO
PROJECT NEPTUNE

A TRIBUTE TO SLIPPERY SAM

You thought we had nothing else to tell you? Here is the first race livery, a tribute to the famous Slippery Sam, in the next days we will show you another one, so come back to visit us.

COUSTEAU LIVERIES

The famous designer Nuno Henriques, better known on Instagram as @hellocousteau use the white fairings of the neptune as a canvas and revisits them graphically to bring you his vision of motorcycle art. What do you think? Let us know in the poll below the photos.

STEP 1

It’s been a little over a month since we showed you a preview of our Project Neptune and your enthusiasm has been heartwarming. We thought and hoped you would like it but your compliments have pushed us further. We have received messages from all over the world, many of whom have asked to order it. We feel in a circuit, in the starting grid, the lights go out. 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1, let’s go!

FEBRUARY 2021

Just arrived at the Triumph of Rome we immediately went to see how to develop the project and the challenges we would face. We had a steep climb ahead of us but the desire to start is great. We can’t let you down.

MARCH 2021

It’s been a little over a month since its arrival in dealerships and thanks to the partnership with TRIUMPH ROMA GRA we are already ready to perform the 3D scan of the Trident. As always, we have relied on true leaders in the industry to ensure that all measurements are perfect. Our whole team can’t wait to start modeling the lines of the new Neptune.

APRIL 2021

Here are the very first surfaces placed on the bikes, the work is still very long but it’s going well, the fairing seems to be born to be installed on this bike. The beginning is amazing.

MAY 2021

You know its side view by now by heart, it’s time to add more details. The front view reveals that the headlight we will use will bae the same as the original bike, around it will be a surface that recalls the same design of the tank. No detail will be forgotten.

JUNE 2021

Another step forward. In June we also start modelling the second fairing and we start to get down to the details of the windshield. We are trying to stay as faithful as possible to the design and the hard work seems to be rewarding. In the coming months there will be many challenges, we will have to find mounting points for the fairings and we will have to relocate the dashboard efficiently, not forgetting of course the top yoke and handlebars.
The list is really long, but we are looking forward to it.

JULY 2021

Last update before the summer break. This month, in addition to the windshield and a first improvement of the surfaces, we started to design all the part of relocation elements and brackets that will be used to connect the new fairings to the frame of the motorcycle. Not a simple job considering that the Trident was not designed to have a fairing.

AUGUST 2021

It’s time for us to recharge our batteries. We will be closed from 7 to 23 August. Many news are coming (not only for Trident) and as always we will tell you month by month. Happy vacations to everyone.

SEPTEMBER 2021

Great day on the ISAM circuit to test new parts for Triumph Trident. Some of these parts were visible as the new race headlight cover, others were instead “invisible” and we needed to verify some components to fix the fairings of the Neptune project. The headlight cover will soon be available for purchase. A big thank you to Francesco Nicoletti, Roberto Curzi and Gabriele Curzi of Triumph ROMA GRA for the great support and professionalism.

OCTOBER 2021

A small project advance, a big step for the Neptune project, the saddle cover is officially the first part to be completed. Now it’s time to prepare the prototypes. Next month we will test the cover on the real bike to make sure everything is up to our expectations.

NOVEMBER 2021

Here are the very first prototypes of the Project Neptune tail. There are many small details to work on to reach the desired level, but we are satisfied, the tail is already mounted well and aesthetically the photos do not give it the right credit, the few people who were able to see live the Trident with the single seat were really impressed.

DECEMBER 2021

For the last month of the year we focused on defining the placement of the dashboard. Due to the new design it could not be left in its original positions, so it was integrated into the inner fairing of the bike, at a wider angle than stock.

JANUARY 2022

New year, we start where we left off. We worked out the new design
of the controls by trying to keep the handlebar mounts as open as possible in relation to the size of the new fairing.
Our aim is to leave the rider in the less uncomfortable position possible compared to the original handlebar position, and we believe we have achieved that.

FEBRUARY 2022

One year has passed since the start of our adventure, which will be completed in the next few months. In this month we have defined the design and engineering of the last element of the Neptune kit, the lower fairing.
Other design elements are finished and we are proud to show you the final version.
The seat cover design has been sent to the milling shop to create the model for the carbon moulds that will be used for production, so get ready because we will soon open the pre-orders for the first pieces.

MARCH 2022

We are now in the final stage of the design process so we are focusing on less visible but no less important parts. Not being able to take use of the bike’s original fittings for headlight and dashboard, we had 3D scans made so we could redesign the way these elements connect to the new fairing.
