The Triumph Legend 964cc was a British motorcycle developed by Len Williams, the former Triumph racing manager, the 'Legend' models were specials, each made after the demise of Triumph at Meriden from parts to specific customer requirements and based on the T160V Triumph Trident three cylinder engine. Also included were the five speed gearbox, electric start and Spanish made alloy wheels. Braking was a Lockheed hydraulic system with twin discs at the front and single rear.

Many were carefully tuned for maximum performance and between 1975 and 1992 a total of 60 Triumph Legends were built - although Len Williams received hundreds of orders, including from the Saudi Arabian Police who wanted to use them as patrol bikes.

The Triumph Legend name was later resurrected by the Hinkley Triumph factory for a version of the three cylinder 900cc. [cite web|url=http://www.carolenash.com/insidebikes/bike-reviews/triumph/legend-900/|title=Triumph Legend 900|accessdate=2008-08-31]
