Triumph Street Scrambler. AUCTION FINISHED

The stylish, capable and user-friendly Street Scrambler echoes the look and layout of some of the old Triumph firm’s best-loved bikes of the Sixties: lean, handsome Bonneville-based parallel twins built for off-road competition, mostly in the US. This modern Street Scrambler’s 900cc engine produces a modest 54bhp, making it a bike designed for rider-friendly fun, rather than speed. It’s no bike for off-road riding, let alone racing, but it is a gentle, good-looking roadster with plenty of relaxed parallel-twin charm.

Triumph can take credit for starting the trend of modern scrambler-style roadsters that also includes BMW’s R nineT Scrambler, Ducati’s growing Scrambler family and Moto Guzzi’s V7 Stornello. The Street Scrambler is the off-road-styled member of Triumph’s updated, liquid-cooled Bonneville family, and follows the air-cooled Scrambler that became a slow-burning success following its introduction in 2006.

That first model initially made little impact, despite its stylish looks and resemblance to legendary Triumph ‘desert sleds’ – racy, stripped-down 650cc twins that were among the fastest and coolest bikes on America’s West Coast in the Fifties and Sixties.

Despite barely being tweaked, apart from the adoption of fuel-injection, the Scrambler gradually gained in popularity until it had become a cult classic. Over the years, its image has been enhanced by association with stars including Steve McQueen and David Beckham, it has starred in numerous movies and the TV series Doctor Who and inspired countless shed-built specials.

The Street Scrambler also uses essentially the same tubular steel frame as the Street Twin roadster, but its chassis is modified by the adoption of a wire-spoked front wheel that is 19, instead of 18, inches in diameter, and by longer Kayaba suspension at both ends.

The Street Scrambler pulls so effortlessly from low revs that its lack of a rev-counter isn’t a problem. It cruises smoothly at an indicated 80mph, too, and has acceleration in hand all the way to a top speed of just over 100mph. The engine’s broad spread of torque also means the bike is happy in town, where it feels pleasantly relaxed and controllable 

Triumph’s liquid-cooled, 900cc parallel-twin engine is impressively economical, allowing most riders to get 60mpg or better, if not the 74mpg that the company claims. That allows a respectable range of about 150 miles, despite the fairly small, 12-litre tank. The digital panel can display information ranging from consumption and remaining range to engine speed, viewable by toggling the “i” button on the left handlebar.

As with the other members of the Bonneville family, the Scrambler’s liquid-cooled status is accompanied by a much higher level of detailing and finish than on its air-cooled predecessor, as well as a fairly basic traction-control system. The engine unit is compact and cleanly styled, and the high-level exhaust incorporates efficient heat-shielding. Neat details include serrated ‘bear-trap’ footrests, aluminium headlamp brackets, foil tank graphics, rubber knee-pads and removable pillion footrests.Despite the Scrambler’s long-limbed look, its slim seat is a fairly low 792mm in height, which helps to make the bike manageable.

This 2017 model has covered only 4500 miles and is very unique in looks and styling over many other Scramblers.

More than 120 dealer-fit accessories feature in the catalogue and range from sump guards, mud guards and slip on Vance & Hines silencers to heated grips, a centre stand and a host of luggage options.

This particular bike has a host of extras that make it unique. The bike has had a custom paintjob in Black to include the Tank ,mudguards and side panels.

Other extras include Shotgun exhaust, custom made seat, LED rear lights, filler cap, mirrors, Remote Resovoir shocks and an alloy bashplate. The extra add up to in excess of £2,000

Pillion seat or luggage rack – the choice is yours as both options come with the bike
