Triumph has launched its newest and most affordable offering, the Trident 660, in Malaysia. The middle-weight street bike has been priced at RM 43,900 (approximately Rs 7.85 lakh) in the country.
Triumph has introduced the Trident 660 in several other international markets as well. While it is yet to be launched in India, pre-bookings for the bike have already commenced at a token amount of Rs 50,000. With the Trident, Triumph is aiming to attract the young chunk of buyers and it is offering attractive finance schemes with a minimum EMI of Rs 9,999.
The Triumph Trident 660 follows a simple design language with a retro touch. It sports a round headlamp, a single-pod TFT console, curvy dual-tone fuel tank and a sleek and stubby tail holding a single-piece seat. In terms of features, the Trident 660 is generously loaded with full-LED lighting, switchable traction control, ride-by-wire throttle and two riding modes (Road and Rain). The Trident can also be fitted with a bunch of accessories.
Holding the Trident together is a tubular steel perimeter frame and it runs on a 660cc, inline triple cylinder engine that churns out 79.8bhp at 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm. The motor is paired to a six-speed transmission. As for the hardware, it rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that are shod with Michelin Road 5 tyres. Suspension setup includes 41mm Showa upside down forks and a preload-adjustable monoshock while braking is handled by Nissin callipers.
Once launched in India, the Triumph Trident 660 will be a direct rival to the Kawasaki Z650 naked street bike.
