Triumph Trident

 Triumph Trident

Triumph is one of the oldest bike manufacturers in the world, the brand has a history of over 120 years and has been wildly popular with bikers all over the world as they have bikes ranging from Supersports to Cruisers to ADVs and everything in between. They are most well known for their Bonneville line of bikes and the evergreen Daytona and their Tiger line.

Triumph have now launched a brand new bike called the Trident and with it has brought back the legendary Triumph 675CCs inline-3 that was previously used in the Daytona, albeit in a different state of tune  and a tad smaller displacement of 660CCs.
The bike competes with the like of the Kawasaki Z650 and the recently launched CB650R.


The Triumph Trident has the Daytona based 675cc inline-3 engine that has been heavily reworked i.e it has smaller in displacement and is in a different state of tune.
So now the bike has a 660CC inline-3 engine that's churns out 81HP and 64Nm at 10,250Rpm and 6,250Rpm respectively.
The motor is mated to a 6-speed transmission.


The bike comes with slipper clutch as standard but one can opt for a quickshifter if they want. The bike also come equipped with ride-by-wire and traction control and has 2 riding modes, Road and Rain. LEDs are used for the lighting on the bike, the bike comes with a blutooth ready cluster that can be optioned as well. Other options include underseat USB charger, a Tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), bar-end mirrors, scrolling indicators and My Triumph connectivity system which is the bluetooth module for the cluster.

Chassis and Hardware

The Trident is held together on a tubular steel perimeter frame that rides on 17 inch wheels, the suspension duties are taken care of by 41mm Showa forks upfront and a preload adjustable shock at the rear. The braking setup are dual 310mm discs at the front and a single 255mm rotor at the rear which are clamped on by Nissin calipers.

Design and Colours

The Triumph Trident has a round LED headlight which looks almost retro and has a tank that looks rather contemporary that has knee cut-outs which make it look pretty slender. The tail end looks heavily inspired by the another bike in Triumph's stable, the Street Triple. The tyre hugger mounted number plate, the under belly exhaust and the wide, flat handlebars make it extremely desirable, if you ask us!
The Trident comes in 4 colors namely Matte Jet Black and Matte Silver Ice, Silver Ice and Diablo Red, Crystal White and also Sapphire Black.


The Triumph Trident has been launched for the price of 6.95L (ex-showroom, Pan-India).
