After multiple prototypes and teasers, Triumph has officially unveiled the Trident 660. The Trident hopes to shake up the middleweight roadster segment with its three-cylinder engine, technology, and competitive pricing.
The all-new Trident 660 features a new 7-inch full LED headlight. There’s also an LED tail-light and self-cancelling LED indicators.
With its unique three-cylinder offering, Triumph says it combines the low down and mid-range of a twin, with the top end performance of a four-cylinder engine, to deliver the best of all worlds.
The 660cc engine produces peak power of 81PS at 10,250 rpm and over 90% of the maximum torque being available across most of the rev range, peaking at 64Nm at 6,250rpm.
Handling all this power is ride-by-wire technology with 2 riding modes and adjustable traction control. The ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ riding modes adjust the throttle map and traction control.There’s also a switchable traction control, integrated in both riding modes, and this can also be disengaged directly through the instrument menu.
The Trident is fitted with a stylish underslung silencer to maximize the auditory pleasure of its 660 three-cylinder. The exhaust has been tuned to deliver a deep and crisp engine sound.
Its unique engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox with gear ratios and final drive optimized to suit daily riding, dynamic riding, and reliability needs. It also comes with a slip and assist clutch with a new span-optimised clutch lever, requiring just a light force to reduce the rider’s fatigue.
The Trident was designed to be used every day with a light steering weight, low seat height and slim width. It tips the scales with a wet weight of just 189 kg, thanks to its all-new tubular steel chassis. The chassis is crowned by a 14-liter fuel tank.
It rides on Showa upside down forks with 120 mm of travel. Behind is a Showa preload adjustable monoshock. It comes with lightweight 17-inch’ aluminium spoke wheels and tapered aluminum bars. A tire pressure monitor, which integrates into the instrument panel, can be fitted as an option. Bringing it to a stop is a Nissin braking system with 2-piston sliding front calipers with twin lightweight 310mm discs in front, and single piston Nissin rear caliper on the rear disc, governed by ABS.
For trip details, the rider gets a multi-function TFT display shaped into a classic round dial.
It easily integrates into the optional My Triumph Connectivity System, that can also provide turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control and phone and music control, all via Bluetooth, using the handlebar mounted switch cubes.
The Trident will be offered in four colors; Silver Ice and Diablo Red; Matt Jet Black and Matt Silver Ice; Crystal White; and Sapphire Black.
Triumph has also made the Trident easier to maintain with quick service times and a 16,000-km service interval.
Best of all, the Trident comes with a wide range of accessories encompassing connectivity kits, frame protectors, a body colored fly screen, aluminium belly pan, bar-end mirrors, shift assist up-&-down quickshifter, and luggage.
