Triumph has revealed a new Trident 660 motorcycle under its ‘Roadster’ category, expected to go on sale in global markets from late January 2021. Prices in the UK start at £7,195 (INR 6.94 lakh).
Built around a tubular steel frame, the motorcycle features all-LED lighting; a color TFT display with Bluetooth compatibility; switchable traction control; ABS; and Road and Rain riding modes. Front suspension is a 41 mm Showa upside down fork while the rear is a Showa monoshock RSU, with preload adjustment. The motorcycle has a wheelbase of 1,401 mm.
Braking duties are handled by twin 310 mm discs at the front with Nissin two-piston sliding calipers, and a single 255 mm disc at the rear with a Nissin single-piston sliding caliper. The wheels are 17-inch cast aluminum ones, wrapped with Michelin Road 5 tyres measuring 120/70 at the front and 180/55 at the rear. A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System can be found in the options list.
As the name suggests, the Trident 660 is powered by a 660 cc in-line 3-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that develops a maximum of 60 kW (81 metric hp) at 10,250 rpm and 64 Nm (47 lb-ft) of torque at 6,250 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox with slip & assist clutch. Triumph claims that 90% of peak torque is available across most of the rev range.
Also, its wet weight is claimed to be 189 kg (417 lbs).
For A2 license holders (UK), the motorcycle’s power and torque output can be restricted to 47 hp and 59 Nm.
Triumph will offer a bunch of other accessories too, such as the Fly Screen, round mirrors, Tank Bag, Tail Pack, Belly Pan and so on. The motorcycle will be available in four color combinations: Silver Ice & Diablo Red; Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice; Crystal White (with Diablo Red lines and Jet Black decals); and Sapphire Black (with Diablo Red and Aluminium Silver decals).
