Powered by the same 900cc parallel-twin engine from Street Twin model.
These modern retro scrambler bikes are always exciting, as they engender a psychological hungriness for good old days and dirt. They look classy, along with modern fun of techs and performance, is impossible to resist isn’t it? Triumph took the wraps off the new 2017 Street Scrambler at the EICMA show last month, and the good news is that the new bike is expected to be launched in the Indian market sometime early next year.
The reason why Street Scrambler one of the best bikes in its niche category is its aesthetics. It looks all the more stylish, but in actuality a dirt monster inside! Elements like the classy finish of metals, graphite badges, shiny aluminium decals, and the quintessential high exhaust pipes are all simply superb. Its analogue instrumentation dial and tiny info screen, along with naked handlebars are simple, but equally grand.
Spawned on the same platform as the new Bonneville T100 and Street Cup Cafe racer, the Street Scrambler boasts a sturdy, off-road chassis. Together with a longer rear suspension and 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel with Matzeler Tourance dual purpose tyres, the bike must take a ‘pro’ attitude in the dirt. Other key features includes switchable ABS, ride-by-wire fueling, traction control and torque assist clutch.
The 900-cc ‘high-torque’ parallel-twin engine from the Street Twin is likely to produce similar power rating of 54.20 hp and 79.90 Nm of torque at peak demand. The company says that the service interval for the bike is of 10,000 miles (16,000 kms).
More details of the new Street Scrambler’s launch in India are awaited.
