New Street Scrambler gets iconic Bonneville silhouette
Triumph Motorcycles Ltd recently revealed the all-new Street Scrambler at the 2016 Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo e Motociclo (EICMA) Show in Milan.
The new Street Scrambler, similar to the styling of the Street Twin, features the iconic Bonneville silhouette which is a combination of clean lines, minimal bodywork and modern finishes such as a fuel tank with locking cap, black sculpted engine covers with the Triumph makers and engine badge, single throttle body with aluminum finisher and distinctive fined head and header clamps.
In addition, it is also equipped with an interchangeable pillion seat and aluminum rear rack as standard, an all terrain style bash plate, aluminum headlight bracket and black headlight bezel, distinctive competition inspired number-board side panel, new front mudguard mounts to suit the larger wheel, unique detailed dual compound rubber knee pads for enhanced grip and new contemporary mirrors. The front rides on a 19-inch wheel while the rear sits on a 17-inch wheel.
Equipped with a 900cc Bonneville high torque engine, Triumph claims that the Street Scrambler provides more low down and mid-range, perfect for around town and light off-roading. It also now features a 270° firing interval for smooth, linear power delivery from the slick five-speed gearbox.
Other amenities include: switchable anti-lock brakes, switchable traction control , torque assist clutch, liquid cooling, LED rear light, engine immobilizer, USB charging socket, and twin clocks incorporated with a digital menu system for fingertip control while driving.
The all-new Street Scrambler will be made available in three colors including Jet Black, Matt Khaki Green, and Korosi Red and Frozen Silver with jet black hand painted coach lining.
The manufacturer also said that to make the bike even more accessible, an A2 license kit will be made available for models from launch, which can be easily fitted and removed by a Triumph dealer.
