SANDSTORM LIMITED EDITION JOINS STREET SCRAMBLER RANGE | MANUFACTURER NEWS
Triumph's Street Scrambler range receives a raft of updates including Euro 5 compliance
With all the Street Scrambler’s custom style, thrilling performance, comfortable easy handling, and high specification equipment, the new 2021 Street Scrambler is beautifully evolved with a Euro 5 engine update delivering lower emissions, and more premium custom style and detailing. Alongside this comes a new and exclusive Street Scrambler Sandstorm limited edition with even more rugged Scrambler detailing, a host of premium Scrambler accessories fitted as standard and a unique Sandstorm paint scheme.
Launched in 2017, the Street Scrambler’s incredible bloodline has an unparalleled history that began in the early 1960’s. The original Bonneville was credited with being a race winner straight out of the crate, and the bike of choice for dirt and desert racers to strip and modify, giving rise to the first dedicated scrambler factory specials including the Bonneville T-120TT. 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. In 2017, the Street Scrambler added a unique contemporary style, conquering the hearts of many riders, thanks to its fun and accessible urban scrambler character.
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 65PS peak power, distinctive Scrambler character and incredible responsiveness and now delivers lower emissions, exceeding Euro 5 requirements, and with superb fuel efficiency. It also delivers incredible torque from low down, right through the rev range for strong responsiveness and acceleration, with 80Nm peak torque at a low 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 that matches its distinctive character.
The new 2021 Street Scrambler delivers the unmistakeable scrambler style and silhouette, born from the original Triumph Scramblers which started the entire desert racing scene in the 1960s. 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. The throttle body finishers, heel guards and headlight brackets, all of which feature a brushed aluminium finish, are also new for this latest generation of the Street Scrambler, as well as the new leather and textile inspired seat covering.
Additional Scrambler-defining details include the high grip ‘bear trap’ adventure style foot pegs, the elegantly shaped tank with lockable cap and the minimal front mudguard. 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 3 premium 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.
The Street Scrambler’s dedicated chassis set-up delivers its commanding riding position with unique frame, wide aluminium handlebars and mid-position foot pegs – a combination that inspires confidence and gives great visibility in traffic. 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, adding to the bike’s iconic Scrambler style.
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. The low 790mm seat height adds to the confident feel and is complimented by a narrow stand-over width, enabling riders to comfortably reach the ground when stationary, making this model extremely accessible, easy to manoeuvre and fun for every type of rider.
The new 2021 Street Scrambler maintains all of its high level of advanced rider-focused technology, ensuring the best riding experience while maximising safety and control. 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. The Off-Road mode turns the ABS and traction control off, enabling the rider to have complete control over the rear wheel when on loose surfaces.
A torque-assist clutch for light and easy operation is also fitted as standard, which represents a particular advantage when riding in heavy traffic or when enjoying light off-road riding, making the bike easier to rider for longer. 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 compact, power-efficient and elegant LED rear light complete the high specification technology package.
As with all Triumph Modern Classics, the new 2021 Street Scrambler is built to personalise, with a huge range of 120 genuine Triumph accessories for additional protection, comfort, off-road style, enhanced capability and security. These include a range of rugged and durable luggage options, plus accessories for greater everyday usability, like heated grips, centre stand, short and tall screens, adjustable levers and engine protectors. Accessories for additional off-road focus include the high-level front mudguard, headlight grille, stainless steel sump guard, and adjustable piggyback Fox rear shocks, while the traditional Scrambler style bench seat and machined handlebar clamp add even more premium custom style.
All genuine Triumph accessories have been designed and engineered alongside the bike for perfect integration and are tested to the same exacting quality standards. They all come with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty.
