The Triumph Trident 660 is the entry-level roadster in the Triumph motorcycle line-up and is also the most-affordable Triumph motorcycle on sale. Designed and built for easy rideability. Designed and built for easy rideability, combined with entertaining performance, accurate handling and balance, the Trident 660 is designed for riders with less experience, and for those looking to get back into motorcycling. Designed and developed by the team at Triumph's headquarters in Hinckley, UK, the new Triumph Trident also gets styling inputs from Rodolfo Frascoli, the motorcycle designer behind the new Tiger 900. Frascoli was also the man behind the Triumph Speed Triple's design, as well as the now-discontinued Tiger 1050.
The 660 cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine is all-new, but it's derived from the base architecture of 675 cc engine of the Triumph Daytona 675. And that engine is also the base for the Triumph Tiger 800 and the Triumph Tiger 900. The Trident's 660 cc engine makes 80 bhp at 10,250 rpm along with peak torque output of 64 Nm at 6,250 rpm. According to Triumph, 90 per cent of the torque is available throughout the rev range, so it should make for a fun-to-ride motorcycle with responsible performance, despite the modest performance figures. Triumph says the engine has been designed to combine low down and mid-range performance of a twin, with the top-end performance of a four-cylinder engine.
The Trident 660 gets a host of technical features like Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, ride-by-wire, and switch cube GoPro control. The bike comes with two riding modes, Road and Rain, and gets a standard slip and assist clutch, along with switchable traction control and ABS. The Trident 660 also gets accessory Shift Assist, and the My Triumph Connectivity System. Lighting is all-LED and the turn indicators are self-cancelling. To offer owners peace of mind, and low maintenance expenses, the Trident 660 gets a service interval of 16,000 km (or 12 months), and comes with an unlimited mileage warranty for two years. The Trident will be offered in four colour schemes which are - Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Crystal White and Sapphire Black.
