British two wheeler manufacturer Triumph is all set to launch a new model in the Indian market soon. The company will introduce the Street Scrambler in India on August 24, 2017. The model made its debut at the 2016 EICMA show held in Milan last year.
Although the Street Scrambler is based on the Triumph Street Twin, the model receives a revised chassis. The model also benefits from a revised riding position that includes wider and taller handle bars, metal bash plate to protect the engine, high mounted exhaust on the right side, 19 inch front and 17 inch rear spoke wheels wrapped in off-road Metzeler Touranace tyres.
Suspension duties on the Triumph Street Scrambler are taken care of by KYB sourced 41 mm telescopic forks with 120mm travel at the front and twin shocks with adjustable preload, also with 120mm travel at the rear. The model gets a single 310mm disc up-front and a 225mm disc at the rear, both equipped with Nissin 2-piston floating calipers. Also on offer will be switchable ABS, ride-by-wire throttle and traction control.
The Triumph Street Scrambler will source power from the same 900cc parallel twin cylinder water cooled engine as seen on its sibling, the Street Twin. This engine will continue to produce 54 bhp at 6000 rpm and 80 Nm of torque at 2850 rpm. This engine will be paired to a five speed transmission. Once launched in India, the Triumph Street Scrambler will rival the likes of the Ducati Desert Sled.
