Triumph commences deliveries of Trident 660 motorcycle in India
British automaker Triumph has started delivering its Trident 660 motorcycle in India. The middle-weight tourer was launched in April at Rs. 6.95 lakh and is currently the most affordable two-wheeler from the brand in the Indian market. The bike has an aggressive stance, a naked body, a TFT instrument console, and runs on a BS6-compliant 660cc engine. Here's our roundup.
The Triumph Trident 660 sits on a tubular steel perimeter frame and features a flat-style handlebar, a muscular fuel tank, a single-piece seat, an underbelly exhaust, and a rounded headlamp. It also has a digital rider's display with optional Bluetooth connectivity, an all-LED lighting system, and rides on 17-inch cast aluminium wheels. The naked sports bike is offered in four color options.
The Triumph Trident 660 draws power from a 660cc, inline 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 79.8hp of power 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm. The mill comes linked to a 6-speed gearbox with an assist and slipper clutch as standard.
On the safety front, the Triumph Trident 660 is armed with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. It also offers Road and Rain riding modes. Suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by Showa's inverted forks on the front and a Showa mono-shock with preload adjustment on the rear.
In India, the Triumph Trident 660 carries a starting price-tag of Rs. 6.95 lakh (ex-showroom). It is available in shades of Crystal White, Sapphire Black, Matte Jet Black, Matte Silver Ice, Silver Ice and Diablo Red.
