6th April 2021, New Delhi: Iconic British premium motorcycle brand, Triumph motorcycles launched the all-new Trident 660 in India today at INR 6.95 lac (ex-showroom). The Trident marks the British marquee’s venture into the premium middleweight roadster segment worldwide. The roadster is powered by Triumph’s revered triple-cylinder engine technology offering triple the advantage - triple engine performance, class-leading technology and handling.

Featuring a 660cc engine with a peak power of 81PS@10,250 rpm and a torque of 64 Nm@6250rpm, the Trident’s triple engine has been designed to combine low down and mid-range of a twin, with the top end performance of a four- cylinder engine, to deliver major performance advantage with the best of all worlds.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Shoeb Farooq, Business Head - Triumph Motorcycles India said: ““We’re excited to bring the Trident 660 in the country as it marks our entry into the premium middleweight roadster category in India. The Trident is the latest addition to Triumph’s roadster portfolio in India, taking the count to four - Street Triple RS, Street Triple R, The Speed Triple 1200RS and the Trident 660. The response to the Trident has been overwhelming, as we’ve had 125+ bookings even before the price announcement. We are confident that Trident will set new benchmarks in the segment and increase the reach and range of Triumph in India. With the Trident, Triumph now offers 16 motorcycles across the entire range in India, offering motorcycles across varied riding styles and segments”.
Adding further, he said: “This all-new roadster with its incredibly competitive introductory pricing coupled with low cost of ownership and an easy EMI option of 9999/- will open gates for more new age riders to enter the Triumph brand ownership. The encouraging number of pre-bookings is a testimony to how well received the brand and the motorcycle is in India. Our next step is to begin the seamless delivery of the Trident to customers and our dealerships are completely prepared to handle the expected footfall and increased inquiries. With the slew of motorcycles we’ve launched this year and one’s that are in the pipeline, we’re confident that Triumph will further strengthen its already strong position in the premium motorcycle industry in India”
