As compared to its rival, the Kawasaki Z650, the Trident 660 takes a simplistic approach to its styling. It gets a round, full-LED headlamp, muscular fuel-tank and a single-piece seat mounted on a clean tail section.
Triumph is offering the Trident 660 in a choice of four colour options– Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Crystal White, and Sapphire Black.
The design exposes the Trident’s tubular steel perimeter frame that houses a 660cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is capable of producing 79.8bhp at 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm. The motor is paired to a six-speed transmission.
Moreover, the middleweight streetfighter also boasts of a commendable feature list that consists of two ride modes- Road and Rain, a switchable traction control system, and throttle-by-wire. Triumph has also equipped the Trident 660 with a TFT instrument cluster that can be fitted with an optional Bluetooth module that allows access to turn-by-turn navigation as well as phone, music and GoPro controls.
Now, the Trident 660 rides on 17-inch wheels shod with Michelin Road 5 rubber. Its suspension duties are carried out by 41mm Showa separate function forks at the front and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock for the rear. Meanwhile, it comes with a pair of 310mm twin discs for the front and a 255mm single disc at the back held on by Nissin calipers.
Triumph is also offering the Trident 660 with over 45 accessories that include a quickshifter, under-seat USB charger, bar-end mirrors, a tyre pressure monitoring system and even scrolling indicators.
The company has announced a service interval of 16,000kms and a two-year unlimited kilometer warranty for the Trident 660. Bookings for the bike have already commenced and the deliveries are expected to take place from end of April.
