Check out the new 2021 Triumph Street Scrambler

2021 Triumph Street Scrambler

Boasting an updated engine, traditional scrambler styling and access to more than 100 bits and pieces, the new Triumph Street Scrambler is a real looker.

There’s no pricing just yet but the new Triumph Street Scrambler looks the business. It’s got an updated engine that’s now Euro 5 compliant which makes 80Nm at just 3250rpm. And thanks to a dealer-fit accessory kit it can even be made A2 licence compliant. The A2 licence kit includes an APS twist grip and A2-specific engine tune, which can easily be reversed by the dealer once the owner has achieved their full licence.

The new Street Scrambler can trace its origins back to the original 1960s Bonneville which found favour with dirt track and desert racers alike. The Scrambler was introduced in 2006 and morphed into the Street Scrambler in 2017, this new one is an update of the 2017 model.

The Street Scrambler features wide-spaced forks, twin exhaust, minimal bodywork, wide handlebars and wire spoked wheels with black hubs and rims for that traditional Scrambler look. New for 2021 are a new aluminium number board with embossed Street Scrambler logo, the throttle body finishers, heel guards and headlight brackets, all of which feature a brushed aluminium finish, as well as the new leather and textile inspired seat covering.

Rounding out the looks are high grip ‘bear trap’ adventure-style foot pegs, tank with lockable cap and minimal front mudguard.

Want to make your Street Scrambler stand out? There are more than 100 optional accessories. Give it some additional off-road focus with the high-level front mudguard, headlight grille, stainless steel sump guard, and adjustable piggyback Fox rear shocks, or go for a traditional Scrambler style bench seat and machined handlebar clamp.

The 2021 Street Scrambler is available in three premium paint schemes: the classic Jet Black, a new contemporary Urban Grey or the new twin colour Matt Khaki and Matt Ironstone scheme, featuring new tank graphics.

But the Street Scrambler is about more than just looks. With 120mm of front and rear wheel travel, the 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, according to Triumph. The long-travel forks are finished with traditional rubber gaiters while the rear suspension features grey springs and black shrouds.

The Street Scrambler’s 19-inch front and 17-inch rear blacked-out wire-spoked wheels are equipped with dual purpose Metzeler Tourance tyres. The low 790mm seat height is complimented by a narrow stand-over width, enabling riders to comfortably reach the ground when stationary.

As far as safety is concerned, there’s switchable ABS and switchable traction control as standard. Three riding modes (Rain, Road and Off-Road) adjust the throttle map and traction control settings to suit riding conditions or rider preference. The Off-Road mode turns the ABS and traction control off. 

Triumph hasn’t said when it will announce pricing, so watch this space.
