Triumph Trident 660 launched at Rs 6.95 lakh

The Triumph Trident 660 has been launched at Rs 6.95 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The all-new model is the company’s latest entry-level, street-naked offering and comes to India as a CKD.

The new Trident features ride-by-wire tech that enables two riding modes (Road and Rain) and adjustable traction control. Traction control can also be turned off in both riding modes. Also on offer is a fully-digital instrument cluster that can be equipped with a Bluetooth module. Equipping this system allows for turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control and phone and music control.

The Trident 660 is propelled by a 660 cc, triple-cylinder engine that makes 80 bhp at 10,250 rpm and 64 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm. According to the company, almost 90 per cent of the peak torque is available from 3,600 rpm to 9,750 rpm which makes for a strong mid-range performance. The triple-cylinder powerplant is paired to a six-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. 

Trident 660 is competing with the Z650 which is priced a bit lower and the all new CB650r which is priced on top in Indian Market.
