Triumph Trident 660 Revealed As Premium Middleweight Pocket Rocket
The motorcycle, its maker says, has class-leading technology as standard and is designed to deliver best-in-class handling.
Triumph has revealed the Trident 660, its all-important and brand new middleweight roadster that could turn the brand’s fortunes around for good.
With the Trident 660, Triumph has stuck with its design philosophy but has given the bike a contemporary roadster style with clean lines and a minimalist look.
Being all-new, the Triumph Trident 660 also gets all-LED lighting and a multi-functional TFT digital cluster that shows loads of information in a crisp fashion.
Developed specifically for the Trident, the 660cc 3-cylinder engine, Triumph says, has 67 new components. The engine puts out 81 PS peak power at 10,250 RPM and 64 Nm peak torque at 6250 RPM.
It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which has a slip and assist clutch, while a quickshifter is available as an accessory.
As standard, there will be features such as “Road” and “Rain” riding modes, switchable traction control (integrated into the riding modes) and ride by wire throttle.
Made using a new tubular steel chassis the Triumph Trident 660, has an accessible 805 mm seat height. Couple that with adjustable Showa suspension set-up, lightweight 17-inch aluminium wheels and a 189 kg wet weight, it sure is going to be an agile motorcycle to ride.
Braking duties are done by Nissin units with twin 310 mm discs upfront and a single 255 mm disc at the back. Of course, there is ABS as well.
Four contemporary colour scheme options, namely – Silver Ice and Diablo Red, Matt Jet Black and Matt Silver Ice, Crystal White and Sapphire Black, will be offered with the bike.
For those who wish to make the bike their own, 45 dedicated Trident accessories will also be available. The Trident 660 will be available in Triumph dealerships abroad from late January 2021 and will be launched in India later.
