The Triumph Scrambler's straightforward, old-fashioned steel tube double cradle with twin shock rear end is basic but more than adequate given the limited performance. It’s dinky, easy going and novice friendly – but the Triumph Scrambler looks the part too and is comfy for short to medium trips.
The Triumph Scrambler gets a version of the Thruxton's 865cc twin engine, and while power is only up by 2bhp at 63bhp, the focus is on the midrange. Peak torque is up by 6ftlb, which means better roll-on performance and rideability, and is 20% better than the standard version. Rasied gearing makes cruising on the Triumph Scrambler easy, and it's more refined as a new clutch cuts vibrations.
No complaints here. The Triumph Scrambler may have only been around for a short while but the whole Bonneville range is generally well built, proven and reliable and there’s no reason to think the Triumph Scrambler any different.
Better than most. The best part of £6000 for a new Triumph Scrambler isn’t exactly chickenfeed but nor is it into Ducati exotica money, either. And for that you get a true classic. Residuals hold up well and Bonnies are constantly in demand - the Triumph Scrambler is no exception. On the positive side, however, they are generally very well looked after.

Triumph Scrambler gets more shiny bits than some of the bare bones Bonnies, but only just. Still, it’s got enough pleasing touches in the right places (twin upswept pipes, and a decent amount of chrome, for example) to give a real pride in Triumph Scrambler ownership.
