It is going to be the most affordable bike in the British bikemaker’s lineup

  • At the heart of the Trident is a 660cc inline three-cylinder engine that puts out 81PS and 64Nm.
  • It gets Showa suspension, Nissin brakes and Michelin tyres.
  • Expect it to carry a price tag of around Rs 7.50 lakh (ex-showroom India).
  • Get ready naked motorcycle enthusiasts, Triumph is all set to launch the Trident 660 tomorrow. The entry-level naked will be the most affordable bike in the company’s portfolio and will also be the most affordable triple in India. Expect it to retail at Rs 7.50 lakh (ex-showroom India), making it around Rs 40,000 cheaper than the 2021 Street Twin. Bookings for the naked had already commenced a while back and deliveries are slated to begin by the end of the week.

    Triumph wanted to capture a slice of the entry-level naked space that is currently dominated by the Kawasaki Z650. The Trident 660 is its contender, as it stays true to the company’s triple cylinder heritage. The 660cc engine makes 81PS and 64Nm. Compared to its main rival, the Trident has 13PS more on tap and has a wider rev range. Plus, nothing can quite beat a hearty triple exhaust note.

    The Trident also packs a healthy suite of electronic rider aids, the likes of which are unheard of in this segment. Two rider modes, switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS come standard. You could also kit your Trident with a bi-directional quickshifter, which Triumph will sell you for around Rs 29,000.

    Triumph has had to keep the pricing of the Trident as competitive as possible. Hence, there’s no adjustable suspension, fancy monobloc calipers or even Italian rubber on offer. The hardware is still pretty sophisticated. 41mm Showa Separate Function Fork and preload-adjustable Showa monoshock handle suspension duties.

    The front 310mm rotors get Nissin twin-piston sliding calipers while the rear 255mm disc has to make do with a single-piston Nissin caliper. Lastly, its 17-inch alloy wheels come wrapped with Michelin Road 5 tyres, which in our past experience have proven to be quite grippy and ideal for Indian roads.
