Triumph has expanded its lineup of classic roadsters in the Indian two-wheeler market by launching the all-new Street Scrambler. The Triumph Street Scrambler was available before the BS6 emission norms kicked in. However, the motorcycle has marked a re-entry in the Indian market with a few add-ons, a BS6 compliant engine and new colour options.
Price and Colors
Triumph has priced the new Street Scrambler at Rest 9.35 lakh. This makes it almost Rest 80,000 more expensive than the BS4 version of the Street Scrambler, which was earlier available at Rest 8.55 lakh. The new Triumph Street Scrambler will be available in three colour options, namely Urban Grey, Jet Black and Matt Khaki with Matt Ironstone.
Features and Design
There are not many changes in the new Triumph Street Scrambler over its erstwhile version. There are only a couple of features introduced in the new version, including an LED headlight with a new brushed aluminium headlight bracket and new throttle body finishers.
Apart from these features, the Triumph Street Scrambler retains the design of the previously available model. The classic retro design with a rounded headlamp, fuel tank with rounded knee recesses and simple looking side body panels have been retained from the Street Twin. However, as compared to the Street Twin, the Street Scrambler gets new knobby tyres, a new split seat design with a bigger seat for the main rider, a part-digital instrument console, single-sided upswept dual exhausts with long heat shields and an engine belly pan.
Engine and Chassis
There are no changes to the liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, 900cc engine of the previously available Triumph Street Scrambler. However, this time around, it is compliant with BS6 emission norms and continues to produce same performance numbers – 65 bhp @ 7,250 rpm of maximum power and 80 Nm @ 3,250 rpm of maximum torque. Also unchanged is the 5-speed gearbox and list of electronics, including dual-channel ABS, traction control and three riding modes – Road, Rain and Off-Road.
Under the skin, the Street Scrambler remains the same machine as well, with no changes to its chassis. The motorcycle continues to sit on a twin-cradle frame and gets a suspension combination of 41mm non-adjustable telescopic hydraulic front forks and twin preload-adjustable hydraulic shocks. The motorcycle rides on a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear wheel, both of which are wrapped with a new set of knobby Metzeler Tourance tyres.
The Triumph Street Scrambler is a new addition to the niche category of scrambler motorcycles, which are known for their raw visual appeal and good prowess on mild off-road terrains. The only other motorcycle in this category is the Ducati Scrambler, which is available in multiple versions and priced between Rs 7.99-8.49 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
