Tri­umph Street Scram­bler

RiDE (UK) - - Travel / Group Ride -

Like the pre­vi­ous Tri­umph 865cc Scram­bler, launched in 2006, the Street Scram­bler is closely based on its Bon­neville road-bike sib­ling. In the new Scram­bler’s case, it’s the 54bhp, 900cc par­al­lel twin from the Street Twin rather than the 1200cc T120 Bon­nie mo­tor. The mo­tor is al­most un­changed for the Street Scram­bler (fu­elling changes to match the high-level ex­haust), and so is the chas­sis spec: the same frame, the same non-ad­justable 41mm KYB forks and preload shocks – with the same wheel travel – and the same sin­gle disc front brake. Only the ad­di­tion of a 19in spoked front and Met­zeler Tourance rub­ber, in­stead of the Street Twin’s 18in front, al­ters steer­ing ge­om­e­try a touch. So the Street Scram­bler re­ally isn’t much more than a lightly tweaked Street Twin – and none the worse for it.
