Trident 660 Servicing Period
on: November 20, 2020, 11.16 AM
Triumph are pushing the fact that the new Trident requires the lowest level of workshop time in the category over a 3 year time frame.

Apparently, this equates to 8.3 total hours compared to a range of 11 hrs to 15.8 hrs total required by its closest competitors, making the Trident service requirements 25% more cost effective.

Their claims are based on official service activity timings and includes: 600 miles 1st service, three annual services, fitting a full set of brake pads, a new chain and new sprocket, and one full brake fluid change.

They are pushing the fact that the bike has a class leading service interval of 10,000 miles / 16.000 km. This is between 25% and 65% higher than the main competitors in the middle-weight roadster category which can only be a good thing.

What are your thoughts on this extended servicing time frame ?

A service every 10000 miles sounds good but I bet it's also every year as well.

As most people do very little mileage then there's not really any win unless you clock up the miles.

I have always been okay with the 6/12k service intervals, even with touring once or twice a year I've not had any issues, and I don't think the Trident will be used for serious touring (maybe by a few solo riders). The longer service intervals will probably be of benefit to people who commute I would think.

I'm not following this service interval. I'll be doing oil changes every 5-6k miles. 10k is too much imo. I do maintenance as needed on my bikes.

Spot on..just a marketing ploy my Triumph even if it is working! :)
