The 2021 Triumph Trident 660 is finally being unveiled, and Triumph hopes the three-cylinder-powered roadster has what it takes to rock a middleweight class dominated by two cylinders. The British manufacturer costs an aggressive £ 7199 and comes with ABS, interchangeable traction control and selectable driving modes. He brings the fight to his competitors.
It’s a simple, characterful, sophisticated feeling machine that likes to commuting or scratching. It’s comfortable, attractive, and so easy to drive that you really don’t have to think about it. New riders will love it, but seasoned drivers will find that it also drives a lot better than its competitors.
Triumph keeps some of the classic style with its round dash, but makes it completely digital with an LCD screen on top and a TFT screen on the bottom. There’s an optional smartphone integration system that lets you view turn-by-turn navigation, music, phone calls, and GoPro controls right on the screen. The Trident also features LED lighting, a custom-made tubular steel frame, non-adjustable Showa interved forks, a preload-adjustable Showa monoshock and Nissin calipers. It also has a slip-assist clutch.
This stripped-back standard weighs just 417 pounds and features a all-new steel chassis. The 17-inch cast aluminum wheels receive most of the sport and touring rubber available today. The bike has a six-speed, a slip / assist clutch, two driving modes (road / rain), gas by wire and a driver-friendly triangle.
The 2021 Trident is powered by an liquid-cooled, DOHC, 660cc inline-triple cylinder engine engine that producing 79.9 horsepower at 10,250 rpm and 47 lb-ft of torque at 6,250 rpm. In particular, the Trident engine should deliver 90 percent of its maximum torque at a impressively low 3,600 rpm.
The Trident 660 has a huge boost to its capacity and is powerful yet friendly in the rev range. Don’t worry about what gear you are using, it will pull off neatly. 80hp might not sound like much in those obsessed days with 200bhp, but it’s still a lot, especially with the bike’s shorter first four-speed gear ratio. So if you tickle triple it doesn’t stop.
The 2021 Triumph Trident 660 price is £ 7199, this is a highly price sensitive market. A few hundred pounds can mean the difference between a sale and a goodbye, especially since customers are usually new, budget-conscious riders or seasoned riders who are getting back on the bike.
Yamaha has a new MT-07 around the corner (price has yet to be confirmed) but with the 2020 model at £ 6,697 it would expect the number on the road to be below the £ 7,000 mark. Kawasaki has also updated its Z650 for 2021 – the new model has yet to be launched but the price has been confirmed at £ 6,849. Honda is now probably the closest competitor of the Trident to its inline four-cylinder CB650R, which will be updated again for 2021 and is currently offered at the same price. £ 7199.
