Triumph is all set to launch its new middle-weight street bike, the Trident 660, in India tomorrow, 6 April. This is will be the most affordable offering from Triumph and it is likely to be priced around Rs 6.50-7 lakh (ex-showroom).
Triumph has bestowed the Trident 660 with a minimalistic and simple design comprising a circular headlamp, a curvy fuel tank and a short and stubby tail section holding a single-piece seat. But it’s a typical Triumph when it comes to features. The list of goodies includes switchable traction control, throttle-by-wire and two riding modes (Road and Rain). Not to forget the Bluetooth-enabled TFT screen and full-LED lighting.
The Trident 660 is based on a tubular steel perimeter frame that is suspended by Showa suspension setup and Nissin brake calipers. Propelling the motorcycle is a 660cc, inline triple-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 79.8bhp of power at 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm. This unit comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with an assist and slipper clutch. Buyers can also opt for the quick shifter by paying extra.
In the international markets, Triumph has introduced the Trident 660 in four colour options - Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Crystal White, and Sapphire Black. As for the competition, the closest rival it has in India is the Kawasaki Z650.
