Priced at Rs 6.95 lakh, the Trident is the entry-point into Triumph’s ‘Triple’ family. The street naked pushes out 80 horses and 64Nm from a 660cc three-cylinder engine that is derived from the 765cc Street Triple heart
It has been a busy year so far for Triumph Motorcycles in India. There have been three big launches from the bike maker in the year already – Speed Triple 1200 RS, Tiger 850 Sport and Bonneville range. Triumph has now brought in the much-awaited Trident to India at Rs 6.95 lakh. At this price, the Trident is the most affordable ‘Triple’ in Triumph’s portfolio.
In terms of design, the Trident flaunts clean and minimalistic cues. The round LED headlamps give it a retro-modern appeal. The wide handlebar, the beefy fuel tank, and the single-piece seat, all make it look like a true-blue roadster. The Trident comes plonked with a circular TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro controls and more. Other features include a USSB charging port, scrolling turn indicators, a TPMS and more. The Trident also comes with two riding modes - Road and Rain, and gets switchable traction control as well.
Powering the Trident is a 660cc three-cylinder motor that develops 80 horses and 64Nm. This is not an all-new engine but a derivative of the Triumph’s 765cc Triple. Triumph claims that the Trident will boast of incredible low-end torque thanks to 90% of its peak being available between 3,600-9,750rpm. The Trident comes paired with a 6-speed transmission that works in union with a slip and assist clutch. The Trident sits on Showa’s SFF upside down forks at the front and a pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking hardware includes two 310mm discs at the front and a 255mm disc on the rear wheel. Dual channel ABS comes as standard.
Priced at Rs 6.95, the Triumph Trident 660 sits between the Kawasaki Z650 and the newly launched Honda CB650R. Triumph will offer the Trident in four colour options - Silver Ice and Diablo Red, Crystal White, Matte Jet Black and Silver Ice, and Sapphire Black. The British bikemaker will also offer 45 accessories to customise the Trident as per your liking. Bookings for the Triumph Trident have already commenced and deliveries are expected to start towards the end of the month.
