Triumph Street Scrambler benefits from a rather decent hike in performance for 2019 at Intermot 2018. The Street Scrambler gets a new Brembo 4-piston calipers for added bite and power, and a higher calibre of cartridge fork for improved composure from the front end.

 

Hardware aside, there are new Road and Rain riding modes to give riders a little more assistance at the throttle when the going gets changeable, and even a tyre pressure monitoring system as an optional extra.  Switchable traction control, ABS (the Scrambler’s is switchable for dirt forays) comes as standard fare. Other standard equipment includes the ’torque assist’ clutch that results in a lighter lever, but with more positive feel, immobiliser, LED rear light and USB charging socket.

 

The Scrambler gets new number-board panels and graphics, new seat cover finish, a clock upgrade, and wider spaced forks for a more rugged adventure bike look. 2019 colour options include Fusion white, Cranberry Red and Khaki Green and Matt Aluminium, with jet black coach-line.

Triumph has also unveiled 2019 Street Twin at 2018 Intermot with decent hike in performance. It gets a healthy 18% poke in the pistons, which is almost 10bhp on top of its existing 54, while the torque remains at 59ftlb. The engine will now spin a little higher before bumping into the limiter too, with 500rpm more to play with (taking it to 7500rpm), giving a little extra flexibility between gears.

 

The engine also gets dressed up with a magnesium cam cover, while the clutch and clutch cover have shaved some mass off, along with a new lighter crankshaft, dead shafts and balance shafts.
