First of all, the upcoming neo-retro Trident 660 looks absolutely stunning with so many modern features on offer. To start with, it gets an all-LED lighting setup, multi-functional TFT instrument cluster and two ride modes among others. However, it is the instrument cluster that steals the show with a turn by a turn navigation system, smartphone connectivity and GoPro control. All these features on the cluster can easily be toggled using the switchgear.

Not to forget, there are three dual-tone colour schemes available on the Trident 660 including:

  • Crystal White with Sapphire Black,
  • Silver Ice with Diablo Red, and
  • Matt Jet Black with Matt Silver Ice

At the heart, it comes with a powerful 660cc three-cylinder engine. Further, this motor is truly capable of producing a massive 81PS of power @ 10,250 RPM and 64Nm of torque @ 6250 RPM. A six-speed gearbox along with the slip and assist clutch helps the engine for transmission duties. However, for a lightning-fast shift, customers get the option to buy the quickshifter as an additional accessory.

For your information, Triumph Trident 660 is based upon the tubular steel frame. And therefore, it comes with adjustable Showa USD forks upfront. Meanwhile, at the rear, this bike sits on a preload-adjustable monoshock unit. To stop this agile bike, Triumph offers twin 310mm discs at the front. Whereas, at the rear, it gets a 225mm disc. Not to forget, the upcoming Trident will get a dual-channel ABS as standard.
