The ever versatile Bonneville range of motorcycles continues to grow as Triumph add yet another model to their portfolio in India with the Triumph Street Scrambler.
Powered by the smaller 900cc HT parallel-twin cylinder engine, the Street Scrambler has been tuned differently to it’s more road biased Street siblings to facilitate a bit of soft off-roading. The performance figures remain unchanged with max power is rated at 55PS with the torque figures hitting 80Nm. The bike gets the usual Triumph electronics package of Ride-by-Wire, switchable ABS and TC but no rider modes.
As is the tradition with the classical British motorcycle, the Street Scrambler sports a double cradle chassis with the rake now pushed out to 25.6deg, 0.5deg more than the Street Twin, to make for an able package off the tarmac. The Street Scrambler makes use of the same suspension as well as brakes from the Street Twin. However, the Scrambler employs 19-17 steel rim setup and not the usual 18-17 alloy wheels.
The bike has been styled to make it look more butch with the high wide handlebars, high mounted scrambler exhaust and a bash plate. The bike comes in three colours – Jet Black, Korosi Red/Frozen Silver and Matte Khaki Green. The bike goes on sale for Rs. 8.10 lakh, ex-showroom India.
