Triumph Trident 660 Launch Date Revealed

Triumph has revealed that the middleweight naked roadster Trident 660 will be launched in India on April 6.  This latest entry-level, street-naked motorcycle from the company will be the most affordable offering likely to hold a price tag of around Rs. 7 lakh (ex-showroom). The bookings are already open, and the bike gets a service interval of 16,000km.

Triumph Trident 660 features two riding modes – Road and Rain. It is powered by a 660cc, inline-three-cylinder engine producing 81hp and 64Nm of torque and pairing to a 6-speed gearbox.

The other highlights of the updated Trident include adjustable traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, self-canceling indicators, multi-functional instruments with colour TFT display, a dual-channel ABS, Michelin Road 5 tyres, and an option to disengage traction control in both modes fully.

With relaxed ergonomics compared to the Street Triple models, the all-new Triumph Trident 660 gets bug-eyed headlamps, muscular fuel-tank, minimal-looking tail section, and sleek designs. The tubular steel frame of the Trident motorcycle keeps the kerb weight down to 189kg.

Suspension duties of Trident 660 are managed by a preload-adjustable mono-shock and a Showa upside-down separate function fork. In terms of brakes, the company uses a Nissin two-piston front caliper with twin 310mm discs and a 255mm disc at the rear.

All-new Triumph Trident 660 may be available in four colour options – Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Crystal White, and Sapphire Black. We can expect it to be a direct rival to the likes of the Honda CB650R and the Kawasaki Z650.
