The Triton was a modified café racer motorcycle of the 1960s-1970s. The name derives from a contraction of Triumph and Norton, the two brands of motorcycle combined.
The intention was to combine the best elements of each to give a bike superior to both. The usual practice was to take the Triumph parallel twin engine and use it to replace the engine on a Norton Featherbed framed motorcycle that was regarded as the best handling motorcycle of the day. The Triumph Bonnevilles engine that already had twin carburettors was a popular engine choice. This engine, as well as other Triumph twin-cylinder engines, gave good performance and reliability and could be easily tuned for greater power by the addition of high-profile camshafts, high compression pistons and twin carburettors or fuel injectors amongst the more common power contributing modifications. There was also a Weslake 8-valve head available for the Triumph.
