The 660c, Liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, inline 3-cylinder comes from the Street Triple 675. We understand the motor isn’t new; however, Triumph has updated around 67 components.
Plus, the Trident 660 gets a new exhaust altogether, wherein the exhaust gets narrower at the bottom.
Further, it has a committed electronic system.The 660cc motor is capable of building 81 PS / 80 bhp (60 kW) @ 10,250 rpm and 64 Nm @ 6,250 rpm.
The bore stroke is 74.0 mm * 51.1 mm with 11.1:1 as compression. The 6-speed transmission gets support from the slipper clutch, and an up/down quickshifter, too, is available.
The excellent part of the new Trident 660 has 10,000 miles (16093.44 km) service interval. We believe it is one of the most significant advantages, and compared to its rival, it is high.
