Triumph Trident 660
Just as the design suggests, Trident 660 is a true roadster. In terms of features, it comes with an all-LED headlamp setup and multi functional TFT instrument cluster. Looks like Triumph knows how to keep a neo-retro motorcycle relevant in today’s world. Currently, it is available with three dual tone color schemes to choose from. The list includes:
- Silver Ice with Diablo Red,
- Matte Jet Black with Matte Silver Ice, and
- Crystal White with Sapphire Black.
Trident is based upon the tubular steel frame that results to stiffened ride quality. However, it is the adjustable Showa suspension setup that balance the overall ride experience. Braking duties for the all-new bike are handled by twin 310mm discs upfront. Meanwhile, at the rear it comes with a single 255mm disc with dual channel ABS.
Powering the middleweight roadster is an aggressive 660cc three-cylinder petrol engine. To be precise, this engine can churn out a massive 81PS of power @ 10,250 RPM and 64Nm of peak torque @ 6,250 RPM. Further, it comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox along with slip and assist clutch for smooth shifting. Quickshifter is also available as an optional accessory. However, two different ride modes including ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ is there on offer as standard.
Not to forget, there are 45 genuine additional accessories for the all-new Trident 660.
In India, Triumph Trident 660 will go head on against the likes of Kawasaki Z650 and Royal Enfield 650 twins. However, it is the Kawasaki Z650 that makes more sense as a rival to the Triumph Trident.
Kawasaki Z650 is one of the most capable middleweight roadster in India. The Japanese bike manufacturer launched the BS6 iteration of it in India at the first quarter of 2021. Currently, the all-new Kawasaki Z650 comes with a price tag of Rs.6.04 Lakhs. Well, in terms of price it is more affordable when compared to the all-new Trident 660.
