The motorcycle will be available in four colour options - Silver Ice & Diablo Red, Matt Jet Black & Matt Silver Ice, Crystal White, and Sapphire Black.
Powering the Triumph Trident 660 is a 660cc inline 3-cylinder engine that produces 81hp of maximum power and 64Nm of peak torque. For the transmission, there’s a 6-speed gearbox. Triumph claims that this motor has 67 new components and its service interval has been set at 16,000km.
Some of the key features of the Triumph Trident 660 include a round LED headlamp, single-pod, full-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, traction control, and two riding modes (Road and Rain). While the traction control can be completely switched off, the dual-channel ABS cannot.

For the brakes, we have Nissin two-piston sliding calipers accompanied by twin 310mm floating discs up-front and Nissin single-piston sliding caliper with a single 255mm rotor at the back.
