Triumph Trident 660 is indeed a great bike in the 700cc motorcycle segment. It’s comfortable, it’s nimble to ride in the city, and it doesn’t have any heating issues either. Earlier, it was bang for buck motorcycle at ₹6,95L Ex. Showroom. It was very competitive pricing because back then Honda had launched the CBR650R and the CB650R in India at ₹8.88 lakhs and ₹8.67 lakhs respectively. But from 1st Feb 2022 onwards, you’ll have to pay ₹50k more over the initial price. Now the starting price is ₹7.45L Ex. showroom.

The 660 triple is nestled in an all-new steel frame, although even then Triumph has managed to keep the weight to a pretty reasonable 189kg wet. Suspension duties on the Trident will be handled by a set of Showa upside-down forks up front and Showa preload-adjustable mono-shock at the back. While braking will be handled through Nissin brakes with twin 310mm discs. Power will be put down on the blacktop through Michelin Road 5 tires.
