Triumph Motorcycles is all set to expand its product portfolio in India. CarandBike reports that the British motorcycle maker will launch the Street Scrambler in India on August 24, 2017.
The Street Scrambler will expand Triumph's modern classic range in India. The scrambler-styled motorcycle is based on the Street Twin, the entry-level offering in the modern classic series.
The Street Scrambler borrows its design cues from the Bonneville. The motorcycle gets minimalistic body work with scrambler features such as side-mounted exhaust, removable pillion foot pegs, interchangeable pillion seat and aluminium rack and engine bash plate.
The motorcycle features tweaked riding posture for comfort with lower and narrower seat compared to the Street Twin. The engine sits on the revised steel cradle chassis.
The Street Scrambler draws power from the existing 900cc parallel-twin engine producing 54bhp and 80Nm of torque. The engine has been re-tuned for more power in the lower rev band and better throttle response.
The motorcycle features ride-by-wire throttle, traction control and ABS as standard. The Street Scrambler is equipped with KYB forks up front and dual shocks at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 310mm front disc with Nissin 2-piston floating caliper and a 255mm disc at the rear.
The Street Scrambler has some off-road capabilities thanks to the additional scrambler-style equipment. But it cannot be considered as a hardcore off-road machine or a dual-sport motorcycle.
The Triumph Street Scrambler is a rugged motorcycle with some off-road capabilities. The motorcycle is expected to be priced around Rs 8 lakh ex-showroom and will rival the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled in India.
