Triumph India has launched the new Triumph Street Scrambler in our two-wheeler market for Rs 8.1 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India). The new Street Scrambler is the sixth model in the Modern Classics family for India after the Street Twin, Bonneville T100, Bonneville T120, Thruxton R and the Bonneville Bobber. The new motorcycle is based on the Triumph Street Twin which retails for Rs 7,17,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi), but gets revised mechanical components to go mud slugging. While the Street Twin is more suited to the tarmac, you can have some fun on mild off-road tracks with the new Street Scrambler.
Triumph’s engineers have added more suspension travel to the rear shocks and equipped the new bike with a wider handlebar, a bash plate, a 19-inch front wheel, a 17-inch spoke wheel at the rear and Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres to adapt the street bike for off-roading. Underneath its cool retro styling sits a modern machine which gets switchable ABS and traction control along with a USB charging point. The design highlight of the new Street Scrambler is the high-mount stainless steel exhaust that looks stunning.
Powering the motorcycle is the same 900cc, parallel-twin motor as seen on the standard bike. This engine churns out 55PS and does justice to the “High Torque” moniker by developing 80Nm of peak torque. Triumph claims a mileage figure of around 26kmpl and fuel tank capacity stands at 12-litre. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic front forks and twin shock absorbers at the back, while braking is taken care of via disc brakes on both ends. Seat height is low at 790mm while the bike weighs 206kg(dry weight). The new Triumph offering will lock horns with the Ducati Scrambler Icon. It will be offered in three colour options - jet black, matte khaki green, karosi red and frozen silver.
