Triumph Trident 660 Launched, Priced At Rs. 6.95 Lakhs
The middleweight roadster is currently the most affordable product from the British brand in India.
Triumph Motorcycles has launched the 2021 Trident 660 in India at an asking price of Rs. 6.95 lakhs (ex-showroom & introductory), today.
Revealed in October last year, bookings for the middleweight roadster bike officially commenced in India a good 5 months ago.
Sporting an all-new design, the Trident has a circular headlight, a sculpted fuel tank, single piece seat, and overall, a minimalist styling.
But, the simplistic look does not mean it is a bare-bones motorcycle. It has all-LED lighting, a TFT digital cluster, smartphone connectivity option, riding modes (Rain and Road), Showa suspension and Nissin braking hardware.
But, the party piece is the 660cc 3-cylinder engine that makes 81 PS at 10,250 RPM and 64 Nm of torque at 6250 RPM. Since the bike only weighs 189 kg (wet), the power figure should warrant spirited riding at all times.
The gearbox is a 6-speed unit with a slip and assist clutch, while a quickshifter can also be fitted to make the riding experience even better.
As mentioned above, the motorcycle comes with Nissin brakes. At the front there are 2-piston sliding calipers clamping 310 mm discs and a single piston caliper and a 255 mm disc do duty at the back.
In addition, the bike does come with ABS and switchable traction control, while Triumph has fitted its 17-inch wheel rims with 120/70-section front and 180/55-section rear rubber.
The factory colour options offered on the middleweight bike include – Crystal White, Matt Jet Black and Silver Ice, Sapphire Black and Silver Ice Diablo Red.
Although competitive on the outset, the 2021 Triumph Trident 660 price can go through the roof once customers dive into the dedicated accessories list for the Trident.
