Intermot 2018: Triumph Motorcycles showcases the 2019 Street Scrambler

Team Fast Bikes

At the ongoing Intermot 2018, Triumph has unveiled the 2019 Street Scrambler. The prices of the bike for international markets will be revealed next month.

The 2019 Triumph Street Scrambler continues to be powered by the same 900cc parallel twin engine, though the company has made some tweaks to the engine that include a magnesium cam cover and a light weight crankshaft. As a result of all the changes, the power is up by 10bhp, now at 64bhp at 7,500rpm. The power is spread over a wider rev range (1,500rpm, as compared to its predecessor). Torque remains the same at 80Nm at 3,200rpm as compared to its predecessor which had the same figure at 2,850rpm.

The updated Street Scrambler also gets ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ modes for the first time. The rain and road modes can be selected via buttons on the handlebar. Selecting either of these modes adjusts the traction control and throttle response as per the road condition. The switchable traction control, ABS and torque assist clutch are retained. For the 2019 model, Triumph has opted for Brembo 4-piston calipers at the front instead of the Nissin 2-piston calipers seen in the 2018 Street Scrambler. The dry weight of the 2019 model is also down by 3kg. The bike gets updated graphics and three new colour options.

The Triumph Street Scrambler was first introduced in 2017. The 2019 Street Scrambler will compete with Ducati’s Scrambler 800 range when gets launched in India.

Here’s what Triumph Motorcycles says about the bike:

The new 2019 Street Scrambler’s beautiful looks, character, and accessibility have all been developed and crafted to make it brilliant fun to ride, around town, out of town or on green lanes and gravel tracks.  It’s why the next generation Street Scrambler now enjoys a host of new rider-focused enhancements that all combine to make it better performing, better looking, a better ride, and even more fun.

There’s more power and performance from a new generation Bonneville 900cc engine that has been updated with a new magnesium cam cover, new lightweight crankshaft, a mass optimised clutch cover, and a lighter clutch. This significant engine upgrade brings 10PS more peak power, an increase of 18% on the previous generation Street Scrambler, and a new higher 7500rpm rev limit – all designed and tuned to deliver even more low-down and across the entire rev range.

This new generation of motorcycle brings with it a significantly improved specification.  As well as the updated Bonneville twin powerplant with 18% more peak power, the 2019 Street Scrambler’s new Brembo front brakes give the rider excellent stopping power, greater control and even more feel, whilst new cartridge forks (with scrambler-style rubber gaiters) offer a full 120mm travel suited to every type of road.  Contributing to the Street Scrambler’s commanding riding position and signature silhouette are classic large-sized spoked wheels and dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tyres fitted as standard.

Two riding modes – Road and Rain – are first-in-class technology additions that manage the throttle map and traction control settings to improve your control and enhance your ride whatever the riding conditions.  A range of additional high quality riding technology is also cleverly incorporated, with minimal visibility to maintain the motorcycle’s clean lines and stunning silhouette.  Switchable ABS together with switchable traction control manages the Street Scrambler’s torque to improve ride quality, while the torque-assist clutch makes it easier to ride for longer journeys.

It’s beautiful and it’s eye-catching; the new 2019 Street Scrambler is instantly recognisable with exciting premium design updates that deliver even more style and distinctive character.  Its iconic Triumph scrambler silhouette, clean lines, minimal bodywork and high quality modern finishes reflect the very best of today’s modern custom style. Loaded with significant technology, features and details the Street Scrambler has real substance to go with its stunning good looks.

Delivering the rich British twin scrambler soundtrack is the Street Scrambler’s elegant twin high level exhaust system. With brushed stainless steel headers, that follow a crafted tight-radius flowing line, this exquisitely engineered exhaust incorporates an intricate header run that hides the cat box out of sight between the heat shield and Triumph’s signature finned engine barrel. Finished off by brushed stainless steel silencers with cool contrasting black heat shields, this is one of the hallmarks of the original true scrambler style.

A host of additions to the Street Scrambler’s world-renowned custom classic good looks bring an even greater level of premium finish. New contemporary touches include a new Street Scrambler logo on the side panel, new instrument styling and a new adventure-oriented seat finish. Stripped-back custom styling finishes include; elegant fuel tank with locking cap, black engine covers with Triumph maker’s mark, and single throttle body with aluminium finisher.

There’s a dedicated scrambler chassis that’s set up for sure handling, including; a unique frame, wide aluminium handlebars, forward set pegs, long front & rear suspension and a big 19-inch front wheel.  The result is a commanding upright riding position for both urban and open road riding, plus a natural off-road riding position that encourages great capability on unsurfaced roads, even when standing.

The base for countless custom builds all over the world, the Street Scrambler has been designed to provide the perfect opportunity for every rider to personalise their bike much more easily than ever before.  Now, with over 120 accessories, this Street Scrambler can be tailored to suit you and your style, bringing even more rugged off-road focus, more style, more everyday usability, and there are now even more stylish luggage options, too.

Making the Street Scrambler even more accessible is an A2 licence kit, which enables a unique APS twist grip and engine tune, making it even easier to own a genuine motorcycle icon. Fitted by a Triumph dealer, full power can just as easily be reinstated by having the kit removed once you have your full motorcycle licence.

The Street Scrambler is built for maximum riding fun, and its style and accessibility has proved an incredibly popular combination for riders all over the world.  This is a bike that’s perfect for you if you’re looking for an authentic modern custom with thrilling power and performance, a rugged off-road focused attitude, and all of that iconic Triumph scrambler poise, presence and style.
