The all new Triumph Scrambler prototype has been spotted testing on roads. The spyshots of the upcoming bike have been revealed. Based on the 900 cc Triumph Street twin the upcoming new Scrambler will get several features, which have been missing in the outgoing model of the bike. It comes with ABS and Euro IV emission certification, which were missing in the outgoing model.
Although the prototype is far from being the complete bike, but it certainly suggests how the upcoming Scrambler is going be like. The engine, chassis, bodywork takes the cue from the Street Twin, but the new Scrambler can be distinguished with its signature higher positioned dual exhausts; wire spoke wheels, dual sport on road and off road tyres. Incidentally, the Triumph Street Twin gets alloy wheels and street spec tyres, and different exhausts as well.
The British two wheeler maker already offers a Scrambler inspiration kit for the Street Twin, although that is pretty different than the parts seen in the prototype. The Scrambler inspiration kit offers a higher positioned Vance & Hines exhaust, in single configuration although, unlike the Scrambler’s twin configuration. There is no catalytic converter available as well in the Scrambler inspiration kit for the Street Twin.
The engine of the upcoming Triumph Scrambler is borrowed from the Street twin. It gets the same 900 cc liquid cooled parallel twin engine which churns out 55 bhp of peak power and 80 Nm of peak torque at 3230 rpm. Although the power output is lower than the outgoing Scrambler, but the torque output has become significantly higher.
There is no detail when the new Triumph Scrambler will launch, but we can expect it to be unveiled later in 2016. The Scrambler is not available in India at present, but the new upcoming Scrambler might hit the Indian shores in near future. The Triumph Street Twin and the Bonneville T120 has been launched in India already. Apart from that the British two wheeler maker is going to launch the Thruxton R in a few days.
