Triumph Trident 660 Overview
Here is the all-new Triumph Trident 660, a completely new motorcycle. An exciting addition to the tridents ranges. It’s fun, agile. It has lots of punch from the three-cylinder engine. And a class-leading specification of technology and equipment as standard. It is, incredibly, good value with a competitive price and a low cost of ownership.
And as you’ll see it’s an outstanding looking machine. But let’s start with the trident’s new engine uniquely for this category.
Triumph Trident 660 Engine Specs
It’s a triple. Why? It is triple the best choice. Well, I believe it literally gives you the best engine characteristics and performance. It doesn’t run out of power at the top end as a twin can, nor do you have to rev it hard like a four to reach the usable power.
Instead, a triple has the advantage of linear delivery right from low down in the rev range. And all the way to the red line giving the perfect balance of low down torque and exhilarating top-end power. Horse Power tops out at 81 ps at 10,250 RPM. The trident’s peak torque is 64-newton meters at 6250 RPM. The best part, though, is that 90 percent of that peak torque is available all the way from 3600 RPM to 9750 RPM. Giving you effortless acceleration in any gear.
The engine is, of course, fully euro 5 compliant for low emissions and excellent fuel economy. And can easily be adapted to meet BS6 regulations.
The Triumph Trident 660, power delivery is managed by a sophisticated engine management system. And by wire throttle for a responsive feel. While the slick six-speed gearbox has gear ratios optimized for fun. And easy ride-ability.
The 660 triple engine sounds great too, with a distinctive deep exhaust note. Delivered crisply through this compact and the minimalistic underslung stainless steel silencer.
