Triumph Trident launch will give the Brit another worthy competitor in the acclaimed mid-capacity Triple range. It will directly compete with Z650….
After teasing it for many months, British motorcycle maker Triumph has officially unveiled one of its most important motorcycle for the world. Called as the Trident, it is a mid-size sports naked that will rival Kawasaki Z650 and others.
The minimalist classic styling of Trident is its talking point and it looks real beautiful in that dual tone color theme.
Trident is powered by a 660cc triple cylinder engine that can produce 81 PS of peak power at 10,250 rpm and 64 Nm of max torque at 6250 rpm. Triumph informs that the power and torque delivery is linear and more than 90 percent of torque is available across the rev range. This would be amplified by the 189 kg (wet) light weight of the roadster.
Trident, which has a seat height of 805 mm, comes with two riding modes – Road and Rain along with traction control which is switchable and is integrated in the riding modes. Other prominent features include assist and slipper clutch, Ride by wire throttle, ABS, all LED lighting and an all new multi-functional color TFT display.
Triumph has also lent it some premium equipment in the form of Showa upside down front forks along with Showa preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. This is complemented by twin 310 mm Nissin discs and Michelin Road 5 tyres.
Additionally, the company is offering an elongated 16,000 kilometre service interval along with a global 2 year warranty.
Triumph has priced the Trident at 7195 pounds which roughly equates to Rs 6.95 Lac in INR and it will be available at the company’s dealerships from late January 2021. It will be introduced in India as well sometime next year and we would expect a slightly more aggressive pricing for our market.
