We test and present a wide variety of products here and have long moved to completely different types of gadgets. Cars are one of the best examples in this sense, but also in the field of “vehicles” I can also introduce you to a scooter that I came across a while ago.
Finally, about the “gadget” in the name, the Triumph Trident 660 motorcycle. The motorcycle was owned by me from 2007 to 2012 when I sold it, and since then I have only ridden it occasionally, so it would not be most appropriate to imagine such a “ equipment”. One of the site’s readers is very passionate about this phenomenon and sent me some photos and a text that briefly explains what his experience with the Triumph Trident 660 was. I know he’s not on this site’s profile, but we have a very large and active community, so we said that it would be a shame not to give some of you the opportunity to contribute your own material. So here are some impressions from the 2023 Triumph Trident 660.

The Triumph Trident 660 is a naked bike that makes me smile every time I ride it.
I had the pleasure of testing the Trident 660 from Triumph Romania for a few days. The Triumph has entered a very competitive market, but the Trident is, in my opinion, a successful naked shoe with enviable performance for its class.
Appearance mature, elegant, quality materials, handling, advanced technology and the elasticity of the 660cc engine make it a competitor to be reckoned with. The round headlight, instrument panel and short rear end with integrated taillight highlight the most popular neo-retro segment.
engine it’s well balanced, has enough power for 81 horsepower, and the exhaust sound (standard) gives it a distinct character. This is one of the few motorcycles that made me smile every time I hit the gas.
Suspension Showa has very good control of the springs on uneven pavement, even if they are not adjustable. The seat (a bit stiff for me) is spacious enough for both rider and passenger.
brakes, a NISSIN brand, is another Trident advantage. It gives a progressive feel and the front arm is adjustable. The ABS isn’t too intrusive, the rear end feels like it’s stopping well even in extreme situations, and the controlled friction clutch helps the rear wheel with aggressive braking.
Dashboard This is another beautiful thing, offering a fully digital multi-function TFT color display with a tachometer located at the top of the screen in the center, which shows the speed, gear and fuel gauge.
There are two driving modes, Road and Rain, which can be accessed and changed while driving. Each setting changes the power characteristics as well as traction and ABS control.
Triumph Trident 660 (2023) – 8390 euros including VAT (the price is valid on the date of publication of the article).
The Triumph Trident 660 is a fun naked bike even at low speeds, very nimble and nimble for a crowded city like Bucharest.
