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 the 270° crankshaft version of the Bonnevilles 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. Higher gearing makes cruising on the Triumph Scrambler easy, and it's more refined too.
No complaints here. The whole Bonneville range is generally well built, proven and reliable.
Used values hold up well and Bonnies generally are constantly in demand - the Triumph Scrambler is no exception. On the positive side, however, they are generally very well looked after. Find a Triumph Scrambler for sale

The 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.
