Triumph Street Scrambler

Triumph has launched a new derivative of it’s hugely popular classic range after revealing a new Street Twin based Street Scrambler at EICMA today.

Based around the 900cc parallel twin motor from the Street Twin and Bonneville T100, the new bike features a new chassis specific to the Scrambler, with long rear shocks, wide handlebars and off-road style Metzeler Tourance tyres with a 19” front rim.

While Triumph’s new classics have impressed us with their dynamic qualities, it’s as much about the look with bikes like the Scrambler and the new Bonneville Bobber, which is making its public debut at this week’s show in Milan.

The Scrambler appears to tick all the boxes in the style department with stripped back styling and a beautiful high level stainless steel exhaust finished in classy brushed aluminium. There’s a neat rear pillion pad, which can be removed and replaced with a useful looking rack, and all over there are cool little touches like the off-road style ‘bear trap’ foot pegs, bash plate and three classy colour options: matt khaki, gloss black and a red and silver combo.

Other tech is as per the Street Twin upon which the Scrambler is based. That means there’s just a basic single dial instrument panel, however there is a USB charging socket for electrical devices and the bike is equipped with ABS and traction control as standard.

No word on cost or availability dates yet, but if the price is right Triumph could well have another hit on its hands with the Street Scrambler.
