Triumph Trident 660 motorcycle unveiled; marks the beginning of a new chapter for the company

The all-new Triumph Trident 660 marks the beginning of a new chapter for the Triumph Roadster segment and competes in what is now one of the most dynamic and exciting categories in motorcycling.

2020 Triumph Trident 660 Front Quarter

The all-new Triumph Trident is powered by a new 660cc triple powertrain which has been engineered for maximum performance usability in everyday conditions thanks to its perfectly balanced character.

All Trident riders will benefit from a punchy and linear power and torque delivery, with peak power of 81 PS at 10,250 rpm and over 90% of the maximum torque being available across most of the rev range, peaking at 64Nm at 6,250rpm.

An A2-compliant accessory kit is available inclusive of A2-specific APS twist grip and a dedicated engine tune. The A2-compliant engine configuration limits the peak power to 47.8PS at 8,750rpm and 51Nm at 5,250 rpm. Dealers can de-restrict the bike back to full power once the rider passes their full licence.

Thanks to the new stylish underslung silencer, the Trident 660 has been designed to also be the new best sounding bike in the category. The single-sided silencer emits a deep and crisp engine sound, delivering a distinctive Triumph triple character.

The Triumph Trident has a 6-speed gearbox with gear ratios and final drive optimized to suit the Trident’s all-round dynamic riding capability and reliability. These characteristics are further enhanced by the slip and assist clutch with a new span-optimised clutch lever, providing a light action to reduce the rider’s fatigue and making it ideal for urban riding. For even smoother and sportier riding styles, a Triumph shift assist up-&-down quickshifter is available as an accessory, which enables the rider to upshift and downshift without engaging the clutch.

With a set-up and specification designed to set a new benchmark for handling, the new Trident delivers a confidence-inspiring, agile and fun ride, with a light steering weight, low seat height and slim width. Combining a wet weight of just 189kg, all-new tubular steel chassis, an ergonomic set-up designed to suit both experienced and new riders, lightweight 17-inch aluminium spoke wheels and tapered aluminium bars, the Trident is as great to ride as it is to look at.

The Trident’s chassis and riding position has been designed to feel comfortable but also to be engaging for the rider – with a narrow width, confidence-inspiring stand-over position and a low 805 mm seat height that allows most people to get their feet flat on the floor at a standstill, but without feeling cramped when riding.

The seat has also been designed with both rider and pillion needs in mind, with a deep foam construction providing comfort for both without compromising on the bike’s style. Pillion grab handles are available as an accessory to further improve the passenger’s comfort and, at the same time, to enhance the Trident’s ergonomics and style.

The Trident handles every road smoothly thanks to its premium Showa suspension set-up. On the front the bike is equipped with Showa upside-down separate function forks giving 120 mm front wheel travel, while on the rear the Trident features the Showa preload-adjustable monoshock rear suspension unit with linkage.

With preload adjustability of the rear suspension and 133.5 mm rear wheel travel, the Trident has been set-up to carry a pillion rider whilst maintaining its outstanding handling and exciting riding experience.

The handling performance is enhanced further by the leading characteristics of the Michelin Road 5 tyres, fitted as standard, which deliver outstanding grip and provide confidence in both wet and dry conditions. A tyre pressure monitoring system is also available as an accessory.

To complete the Trident’s advanced set-up the Nissin braking system provides outstanding stopping power from 2-piston Nissin sliding front callipers with twin lightweight 310mm discs on the front, and single-piston Nissin rear calliper on the rear disc.

The Triumph Trident is equipped with an elegantly styled all-new dashboard providing the rider with all necessary information in a compact, clean and uncluttered style through a colour TFT screen integrated with a crystal clear ‘white-on-black’ LCD.

The instruments, when implemented with the dedicated My Triumph Connectivity System accessory module, can also provide turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control and phone and music control, all via Bluetooth, using the handlebar-mounted switch cubes.

Designed to deliver maximum riding pleasure and confidence the new Trident comes fitted as standard with three class-leading technology features: with 2 riding modes, adjustable traction control and ride-by-wire.

The ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ riding modes enhance the rider’s confidence, control and safety through the electronic adjustment of both the throttle map and traction control. The adjustment of the throttle map is made possible by the ride-by-wire technology that provides crisp and precise throttle response.

The power of the 660 Triple Engine is managed by the switchable traction control, integrated in both riding modes, and this can also be disengaged directly through the instrument menu. Additionally, the power of the Nissin braking system is made even smoother and safer thanks to ABS, which the Trident 660 also features as standard.

2020 Triumph Trident Colour Options:

The Trident will be available in four striking colour schemes- Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Crystal White and Sapphire Black.

The all-new Trident 660 features a new 7-inch full-LED headlight, exclusively designed for this model with a premium Triumph badge incorporated in it. The lighting system continues with a beautifully integrated LED tail-light that also has a Triumph badge integrated into it, and self-cancelling LED indicators. Accessory fit scrolling indicators are also available, adding additional style and modern sophistication to the Trident’s look.

The high level of standard equipment and technology the Triumph Trident 660 can be further enhanced through the dedicated Trident accessory range that will be available at all Triumph dealers. Riders can add internally-wired heated grips to enhance cold weather riding and install an under-seat USB charging socket. Depending on the market, the bike can be fitted also with an alarm, or tracker with a 24/7 monitoring system.

The new Trident 660 introduces a unique contemporary Triumph roadster style and character with a pure, minimalist stance and clean lines, bringing together Triumph’s iconic design DNA, with more than a hint of our Speed Triple’s muscular poise.

The distinctive look of the new Triumph Trident 660 is characterised by a host of unique features including a 14-litre fuel tank, with a new contemporary design style and Triumph’s signature knee cut-outs.

Lightweight cast aluminium five-spoke wheels add an aggressive look to the bike thanks to their black sporty design. The Trident’s elegant new swingarm and clean and light rear design amplify the distinctive styling with a minimal number plate hanger integrated with the rear indicators.

As with every Triumph motorcycle, the attention to detail and finishing has been crafted to set the benchmark for quality. From the body-coloured radiator cowls to the sculptured aluminium yokes, body-coloured fork protectors, tapered aluminium handlebars and teardrop shape mirrors, the Trident’s detailing, quality and finish is outstanding.

The presence of both Triumph iconic brand logo and the “Trident” name has been flawlessly incorporated into the design of the Trident. Premium Triumph logos can be found on both the headlight and tail-light and also elegantly displayed on the instrument interface and the machined fuel filler cap. Also, on the side of the tank, an aluminium Trident badge with diamond machined detailing reinforces the style and quality of this all-new model.

Trident customers will be able to further enrich their motorcycle specification through a selection of dedicated Trident accessories to personalise their bike and add even more performance, practicality and style.

Including frame protectors, a body-coloured fly screen, aluminium belly pan bar-end mirrors, heated grips, shift assist up-&-down quickshifter and luggage, all of the 45 options available have been designed alongside the Trident and come with a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty.
