- Triumph Trident 660 priced at Rs 6.95 lakh
- Gets 660cc, inline-three cylinder engine
- Comes with riding modes, traction control
The bookings for the motorcycle have already commenced and the deliveries are expected to take place by end of April. Now, the Trident 660 takes a simplistic approach to its styling compared to its rival- the Kawasaki Z650. It gets a round, full-LED headlamp, broad-shouldered fuel-tank, 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 shows off the Trident’s tubular steel perimeter frame that holds on to the powertrain. It uses 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, it also boasts of a healthy feature list that includes two ride modes- Road and Rain, switchable traction control, and throttle-by-wire. The Trident 660 also gets a TFT instrument cluster and it can be fitted with the optional Bluetooth module that allows access to turn-by-turn navigation along with phone, music and GoPro controls.
Suspension duties on the Triumph Trident 660 are taken care of by 41mm separate function forks sourced from Showa at the front and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear. Meanwhile, it employs a pair of 310mm twin discs for the front and a 255mm single disc at the back – both held on by Nissin calipers. And the Triumph Trident 660’s 17-inch cast-aluminium wheels are wrapped with Michelin Road 5 tyres.
Triumph is also offering accessories like a quickshifter, under-seat USB charger, bar-end mirrors, a tyre pressure monitoring system and even those fancy scrolling indicators you see on high-end cars. To top it all, Triumph is offering a service interval of 16,000 km (or 12 months) and a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty for the new Trident 660 to make for a low cost of ownership.
