This off-road capable motorcycle is based on the Street Twin and it uses the same 900cc ‘High Torque’ parallel-twin engine from the Street Twin. The motor makes 55hp of peak power and 80Nm of peak torque. The air- and water-cooled unit even comes with the ride by wire throttle and switchable traction control of the street version. Power delivery characteristics have been altered – this bike delivers more bottom-end grunt. The five-speed gearbox is also carried over.
The chassis is now reinforced to cope with the intensity of off-roading. The rear shocks are now longer, and the bike’s ABS has been uprated and is switchable. The handlebars are also slightly taller and wider and there’s a new split seat that has been designed for the Scrambler. The seat has a removable pillion section under which sits a rack for mounting small luggage or a toolbox. The bike uses 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire-spoke wheels, shod with on- and off-road Metzeler Tourance tyres. There’s also a metal bash plate under the engine.
The Triumph is expected to be priced around ₹8 - ₹8.5 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
