Triumph have just released their 2021 Street Scrambler with a host of upgrades. They have also released a limited edition version, check out the changes below...
Launched in 2017, the Street Scrambler bloodline has an unparalleled history
that began in the early 1960s. Triumph say the original Bonneville was credited with being a race winner straight out of the crate, and the bike of choice for dirt racers to strip and modify.
Stripped back, lighter and more powerful, this was the bike that ignited the Scrambler scene. Reintroduced to the Triumph line up in 2006, the Scrambler very quickly became the genesis of a whole new sub-category.
The new 2021 Street Scrambler is powered by the 900cc high-torque Bonneville twin cylinder engine, now updated to be fully compliant with the latest Euro 5 regulations. The liquid-cooled powerplant retains all of its 65HP, but now delivers lower emissions, exceeding Euro 5 requirements, and with claimed superb fuel efficiency. Triumph say it also delivers torque from low down, right through the rev range for strong responsiveness and acceleration, with 80Nm@3,250rpm.
The unmistakeable sound of the iconic British twin comes courtesy of the Street Scrambler’s signature high-level twin exhaust system with brushed stainless-steel silencers, giving a unique exhaust note. A high first major service interval of 16,000km ensures a low cost of ownership.
Maintaining that authentic character and timeless DNA, the Street Scrambler features distinctive wide-spaced forks, high level twin exhaust, minimal bodywork, wide handlebars and wire spoked wheels with black hubs and rims. For the new 2021 generation, additional premium touches and details have been added including the new aluminium number board with embossed Street Scrambler logo, incorporated into the new side panel.
As with all the bikes in Triumph’s Modern Classic family, the Street Scrambler’s black coated engine features the signature-shaped Bonneville engine covers with their Triumph makers-mark badge, complimented by a finned head and header clamps. The 2021 Street Scrambler is available in three paint schemes: the classic Jet Black, a new contemporary Urban Grey or the new twin colour Matt Khaki and Matt Ironstone scheme, featuring distinctive new tank graphics.
Triumph say excellent stopping power, with great bite and feel, is provided by the high specification Brembo 4-piston front brake caliper. With 120mm of front and rear wheel travel, the high specification 41mm cartridge forks and preload adjustable twin shocks enable the rider to feel confident and comfortable on longer journeys, or when tackling light off-road surfaces.
The long-travel forks are finished with traditional rubber gaiters while the rear suspension features grey springs and black shrouds The Street Scrambler’s 19” front and 17” rear blacked-out wire-spoked wheels are equipped with dual purpose Metzeler Tourance tyres for great grip, durability and precise handling in all conditions. Triumph also say the low 790mm seat height adds to the confident feel and is complimented by a narrow stand-over width.
Switchable ABS and switchable traction control are fitted as standard, optimising torque delivery when traction is compromised. Three riding modes (Rain, Road and Off-Road), enabled via the ride-by-wire technology, which adjust the throttle map and traction control settings to suit riding conditions or rider preference, ensuring optimum performance in wet or dry conditions.
A torque-assist clutch for light and easy operation is also fitted as standard. The clocks feature an analogue speedometer and a digital menu system, which is easily accessed via intuitive handlebar mounted buttons. The under-seat USB charger, key-fob-incorporated immobiliser and the LED rear light complete the technology package.
Triumph have also announced the new 2021 Street Scrambler Sandstorm limited edition. It takes the latest generation Street Scrambler, which is updated for 2021, and adds a unique and contemporary Sandstorm Edition paint scheme and even more rugged style and detailing, with a host of premium accessories fitted as standard.
The custom Sandstorm paint scheme incorporates Matt Storm Grey and Ironstone accents on the tank in a unique new tri-tone style, plus a Matt Storm Grey factory-fitted high-level front mudguard. The Sandstorm limited edition features the premium Triumph accessory tail tidy as standard, incorporating a compact LED tail light and number plate light, plus a heavyduty aluminium sump guard, a stylish headlight grille with subtle Triumph branding and protective rubber knee pads on the tank.
Only 775 of the Street Scrambler Sandstorm limited edition will be produced worldwide, each will come with a unique personalised certificate of authenticity stating the bike’s VIN number.
