Triumph Motorcycle India has launched Street Scrambler in India for Rs.8.1 lakhs (Ex-showroom, pan India). It is the off-road version based on the Street Twin motorcycle. Sharing the same underpinnings, the bike gets light off-road credentials and additional equipment as well. The Triumph Street Scrambler will be taking on the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, an equally niche offering in this space.
The Triumph Street Scrambler shares the same 900 cc parallel-twin engine with the Triumph Street Twin, and gets ride-by-wire, standard ABS and traction control. The engine makes 54 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 68 Nm of peak torque, at 4750 rpm.
The Triumph Street Scrambler comes with features and equipment suitable for light off-roading. The first thing that stands out on the Street Scrambler is the side-mounted high exhaust, which is typical Scrambler tradition. Along with it, the Street Scrambler also gets an aluminium rack at the rear, removable pillion footpegs, serrated front footpegs, a bash-plate for the engine and an interchangeable rear seat as well.
Triumph offers over 150 accessories to personalise the Street Scrambler like - bar-end mirrors, traditional bench seat, slip on Vance & Hines silencer among others. It will come in three colour options, namely Jet Black, Matte Khaki Green, and Korosi Red with Frozen Silver dual tone shade.
