The entire Street Twin-based range gets some subtle tweaks with a new saddle, sidepanel number board, aluminium headlight bracket, heel guards and throttle body finish. And despite meeting Euro5 emissions regulations, the new version sacrifices none of its 64bhp peak power output.
The limited-edition Sandstorm pays tribute to the original desert racing Triumph Scramblers of the 1960s with a special three-tone paintjob. On top of this, it gets a high-level mudguard, aluminium bash plate, rubber knee pads, headlight grille and a tail tidy.
The Sandstorm edition will be available from May and costs £9900 but just 775 units will be made worldwide, so you’d better move fast if you want one.
The standard Street Scrambler models will arrive in July priced at £9300 and come in three colour options; grey, black or matte khaki and grey.
Triumph switched from using the Bonneville as the basis for their Scrambler to the Street Twin in 2017, creating the first Street Scrambler model. Then, in 2019 the bike got a 10bhp power boost taking its High Torque parallel-twin engine to 64bhp – similar to the old Bonnie-based version.
