Triumph Trident 660 deliveries start in India
After launching the Trident 660 middleweight naked roadster in India earlier this year, Triumph Motorcycles India has now commenced customer deliveries of the bike in the country.
The new Trident 660 has been priced from ₹6.95 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India) onwards. At this price, the Trident comes out as the most affordable bike in the company's lineup. It is a direct rival to the likes of the Kawasaki Z650 as well as the recently launched Honda CB650R bike.
It has been designed for everyday easy riding. The development of Trident has been carried over at the company's headquarters in Hinckley, UK. It is claimed to offer a mix bag of performance, ease of riding as well as precise and accurate handling.
