Tri­umph’s new twins

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Fa­mil­iar look­ing but dif­fer­ent – that’s the new Street Twin and Street Scram­bler twins from Tri­umph. Both get the ‘high torque’ 900cc en­gine with new camshafts, bal­ancers, and a new clutch. The en­gine now revs to 7,500 rpm at which point it pumps out 48kW, an in­crease of 18 per cent over the old model, plus a torque out­put of 80Nm. Brembo four-pis­ton cal­lipers now clamp the front disc and there are new car­tridge in­ter­nals in the front forks.

Elec­tron­ics have also been heav­ily re­vised, with new Rain and Rid­ing modes which au­to­mat­i­cally ad­just the throt­tle map and trac­tion con­trol set­tings. Both mod­els have a huge ac­ces­sory cat­a­logue; 120 cus­tom ac­ces­sories for the Street Scram­bler and 140 for the Street Twin. The Scram­bler comes in Fu­sion White, Cran­berry Red and Khaki Green, while the Street Twin’s colours are Matt Iron­stone, Korosi Red, or Jet Black.
