Triumph's 900cc "T-Plane" triple... This engine sounds familiar!


Recommended Posts

I just watched this short video explaining the Triumph 900 "T-Plane" 3-cylinder engine. Near the end of the video there's an on-board-camera clip that gives you a good opportunity to hear the engine rev under hard acceleration. You're not going to believe how much this engine sounds like a VFR800 engine.

If you don't want to watch the whole video just skip to 3:10 and listen to how Triumph stole the sound of our VFR800s.

The cylinder firing order of the "T-Plane" engine is almost exactly the same as our VFR800, just without cylinder #4
VFR800 = 1-0-1-0-0-1-0-1-
Triumph = 1-0-1-0-0-1-0-0-

Sounds good; I like it. Now, I wonder if it's smooth like the VFR? If so, we have a potential contender for VFR replacement.

A triple that doesn't sound like a coffee can full of ball bearings? Madness!

That's amazing.  In a blindfold test I'm not sure I could tell the difference.
