The Triumph Street Scrambler shares much with the Street Twin stablemate, but nestles its toes in the sand for some good dirty fun. It is powered by the same character-rich 900cc 270-degree-crank Bonnie engine, but it swaps the low-slung exhausts for “swan neck” duals for a scrambler-vibe and purpose. Spoked rims wrapped in dual-purpose rubber, a larger 19-inch front wheel, a wider spaced fork, wider handlebar, as well as off-road-friendly electronics further round out the multifaceted machine. The Street Scrambler pairs its full-bodied character with modern retro good looks for a wonderful taste of what it means to be a modern scrambler.
The recently revised 2019 Street Scrambler claimed test rider’s praise for the exhaust and its note: “The exhaust note of the Scrambler is more noticeable, again, adding a sprinkle of character, and, chasing a pair of them as the sun went down, I’d say the view from the rear of that distinctive high-level exhaust is memorable. It operates with a sweet-natured efficiency. It’s user-friendly in the extreme.”
Competition includes the Ducati Scrambler Icon, Husqvarna Svartpilen 701, and BMW RnineT Scrambler.
