First Ride Incoming: Triumph Street Scrambler
MCN’s Andy Davidson is flying out to Spain for the world launch of the Triumph Street Scrambler this weekend.
Unveiled to the public at the Milan Show late last year, this latest adaptation of the Bonneville offers a cool retro look alongside a variety of modern touches. The 900cc motor produces 54bhp and the bike comes fitted with switchable traction control and ABS and the retro-designed rear light is crammed with LEDs for greater visibility.
A Thatcham approved immobiliser is built into the key, and there is a USB charging point too. A torque assist clutch also means less effort at the lever.
Style-wise Triumph’s latest Scrambler comes fitted with an interchangeable pillion seat and removable pillion pegs and hangers. An aluminium rear rack comes as standard and an all-terrain style bash plate offers a rugged look.
New front mudguard mounts have been added to suit the larger wheel and there are rubber knee pads for improved grip to the tank when riding. A stylish side-mounted exhaust completes the retro look.
Prices of the Street Scrambler are still to be confirmed. Check out www.motorcyclenews.com after our first ride this Saturday for more information.
