Triumph’s entry-level offering has undergone its first price hike, but continues to be positioned in between its rivals.
Triumph Motorcycles India has revised the price of its entry-level offering, the Trident 660, making it Rs. 50,000 more expensive than before. The revised price of the bike is Rs. 7.45 lakh (ex-showroom).
Launched in April last year, the Trident 660 is powered by a 660cc inline 3-cylinder engine that makes 80bhp at a screaming 10,250rpms, and 64Nm at just 6250rpms. A six-speed transmission with slip and assist clutch sends drive to the rear wheel. You can also spec it with a quick-shifter, but that is an optional extra
Despite being an entry-level offering from Triumph, the Trident 660 gets features like ride-by-wire throttle, switchable traction control, riding modes (road and rain), Showa upside-down forks and a preload adjustable rear suspension, Nissan brake calipers, and LED lights all around. You also get a fully digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity.
The Trident 660 has a 16,000km/1 year service interval, and Triumph offers it with a 2 years/unlimited kilometres warranty. There are four colour options – Crystal White (single tone), Sapphire Black (single tone), Matt Jet Black and Silver Ice (dual tone) and Silver Ice Diablo Red (dual tone).
When it comes to rivals, the Trident 660 has two major ones. The first one is the Kawasaki Z650, which is priced at Rs. 6.24 lakh (ex-showroom). On the other hand, there is the Honda CB650R, which goes for a whooping Rs. 8.69 lakh (ex-showroom). The Triumph Trident 660 then is positioned in between the two.
