Triumph’s modern Scramblers have redefined scrambler style for the 21st century. Rugged off-road looks, a killer soundtrack and incredible fun to ride, the Street Scrambler refined and improved those elements. New for 2019, the Street Scrambler takes the bloodline to a new high.
Like its road-focused brother, the new Street Twin, the Street Scrambler has a big jump in power, 10PS more on its previous version. A higher redline and an impressive 80Nm of torque will provide a more thrilling experience.
To achieve this increase there has been a number of key updates to the engine including magnesium cam covers and new materials throughout the drivetrain to reduce weight and increase power.
For cutting through city traffic, or riding on green lanes, the responsiveness and improved power will give even more punch. A first for this category and new for 2019 are also Road and Rain riding modes which, alongside the standard ABS and traction control – and the addition of new Brembo brakes – gives the Scrambler amazing capability wherever you ride it.
The 2019 Street Scrambler brings increased power coupled with rugged-looking features. Wider spaced front forks give the bike even more poise and purpose and subtle touches such as the new adventure seat finish gives the whole bike a more off-road look. The wide bars, high-level exhausts, tough-looking gaiters and stock Metzeler Tourance tyres finish off the go-anywhere style.
Spec it up
Stacks of options for customisation, with more than 120 accessories, means you can spec up your Street Scrambler exactly as you want it straight out of the show room.
The 2019 model will be launched with an Urban Tracker inspiration kit to show riders how they can create their own special. This adds a custom vibe with custom oil cap, black bars, ribbed bench seat and high level front mudguard, rugged pannier and Vance and Hines silencers, giving the bike an even more practical touring appeal.
Designed by Dutch
Founder of the Bike Shed, ‘Dutch’ van Someren, turned his hand to designing a one-off tank for the Scrambler reveal in Intermot, Cologne. Although the tank is not available to buy, the Urban Tracker inspiration kit on this bike shows the personalisation possibilities.
What’s the reaction?
FTR caught up with motorcycle journalist, Chief Editor of MotoCOM and Chief Advisor of Riding Academy Tokyo, Kentaro Sagawa at the Intermot reveal. “The new Scrambler is more exciting. I believe the increased power and Brembo brakes will make it more responsive and the updates to the styling make it a better looking bike all around. I’m a fan of British bikes, and this is one of the best examples out there.”
The Street Scrambler will no doubt continue to be a favourite. The throaty high-level twin pipes look and sound as good as ever. Now putting out even more power, and with style tweaks all over, it’s the perfect bike for both the dense urban sprawl and having a bit of fun on forest trails.
