Design & Legacy

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 Trident 660 has a muscular stance, and the bulging lines of the two-tone fuel tank gives the bike a broad shouldered look. Overall attention to detail, fit and finish, as well as components, including the LED lighting, sharp tail section, and TFT console gives the Trident 660 premium appeal.

The Triumph Trident name is taken from Triumph Motorcycles' rich history

The Triumph Trident name isn't all-new; in fact, the first time the Triumph Trident name was introduced was in the late 1960s, when Triumph was part of the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA). The 740 cc air-cooled parallel-twin with 58 bhp of power was used in both the Triumph Trident and the BSA Rocket 3, and was in production from 1968 till 1975. The Triumph Trident name was once again revived in 1990 with Triumph under new ownership. The 1990s Triumph Trident 900 with a three-cylinder engine was critically acclaimed and was available in two engine displacements, a short-stroke 750 cc, and a long stroke 885 cc engine. The Trident name was discontinued in 1998, and after almost two and a half decades, the marque makes a comeback as the new 2021 Triumph Trident 660.

Engine & Chassis

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.

Price & Competition

0 Comments

The ₹ 6.95 lakh (Ex-showroom) price is introductory and undercuts its rival, the Honda CB650R by quite a margin. The CB650R is priced at ₹ 8.67 lakh. However, the Trident 660 will also compete with the Kawasaki Z650, and with a price tag of ₹ 6.04 lakh (Ex-showroom), the Z650 offers a lot more value. Where the Trident 660 will possibly have an edge is the triple engine's character, as well as the sharp handling it's expected to get. Look out for our first ride impressions coming soon, once we get to swing a leg over the Triumph Trident 660.
