Roaring close behind the tyre tracks of the Street Twin earlier this year, the upgraded Street Scrambler grabbed all the headlines at EICMA.
World Superbike king Carl Fogarty and rock drummer Mark Richardson showcased the new bike, the latest in the new Street Twin platform which has also seen the launch of the T100 Bonneville, T100 Black and Street Cup café racer.
Built around Triumph’s new Street Twin’s 900cc parallel twin motor, the Scrambler brings purpose and poise with genuine Scrambler detailing.
The Bonneville silhouette is unmistakable but high-mount stainless steel pipes alongside snaking header pipes with integrated catalytic converter give it a marked street twist.
There’s the Street Twin’s fuel tank with locking cap, plus other distinguishing characteristics, including a 19-inch front wheel to replace the Bonnie line’s 18-inchers so synonymous with Scramblers.
Model-specific front fork and shocks with additional travel, a wider tapered aluminium handlebar and wire-spoke wheels with black hubs and rims all add to the edginess.
The Street Scrambler will be available in Jet Black, Matt Khaki Green or Korosi Red and Frozen Silver, with jet black hand-painted coach lining and unique tank decals.

It’s probably been my favourite bike over the last decade. The new version looks as cool as the old one…if not coolerCarl Fogarty
