The most affordable scrambler from the Triumph stable is on sale now. The motorcycle is largely similar to its predecessor in terms of styling and mechanicals, which means that the new Street Scrambler will feel a lot familiar to the enthusiasts.
Triumph has launched the 2021 Street Scrambler in India for Rs 9.35 lakh (ex-showroom). The company also has the special edition Street Scrambler Sandstorm on sale for Rs 9.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The 2021 Street Scrambler costs Rs 60,000 less than its special edition. Other than the Ducati Scrambler Icon, the 2021 Triumph Street Scrambler also rivals the Suzuki V-Storm 650 XT, which is cheaper than it by a lakh.
The 2021 Street Scrambler was showcased internationally in April. The motorcycle was revealed in the Euro 5 compliant avatar, which means that it was also BS6 compliant. The 900cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine has been tuned to put out 64bhp at 7,250rpm and 80Nm at 3,250rpm. These power figures are the same as before. The motorcycle continues with a five-speed gearbox as well.
In terms of styling, the 2021 Street Scrambler looks largely the same, but Triumph has added details such as brushed aluminium headlamp brackets and heel plates. There is also an aluminium finished number board on the side panel of the motorcycle. Other than the aforementioned changes, the new Street Scrambler carries over all the old styling bits, such as the side-mounted exhaust, flat seat, and an upright handlebar.
While the Street Scrambler is not a true blue off-road adventure motorcycle like its sibling, the Triumph Tiger, it, nonetheless, gets its rough stuff biased bits, which include Metzeler Tourance tyres, spoke wired 19-inch wheel in the front, and 17-inch wheel at the rear. The motorcycle now gets multiple riding modes, namely rain, road, and off-road. The off-road mode completely turns off the intervention of traction control and ABS. There is a metal bash plate at the bottom of the engine to keep the components safe.
