Bike: 2017 Triumph Bonneville Street Scrambler

Triumph adds dual-sport Street Twin variant to Bonneville line-up.

Based off the Street Twin and now joining the new Street Cup in the 900cc Bonneville line up for 2017, the all new Street Scrambler builds on the Street Twin’s position as the fun and accessible contemporary Bonneville and brings a significant update in capability and style to the iconic Triumph Scrambler.

The all-new Street Scrambler has been developed to deliver more purposeful Scrambler style with unique features and detailing. Sharing the same contemporary custom styling principles as the Street Twin, the new Street Scrambler has the iconic Bonneville silhouette combined with clean lines, minimal bodywork and modern finishes.

Those finishes include the elegant fuel tank with locking cap, black sculpted engine covers with the Triumph makers mark and engine badge, single throttle body with aluminium finisher and distinctive fined head and header clamps. Furthermore, in-keeping with the name and heritage, the Street Scrambler is packed with distinctive and beautiful scrambler finishes.

Those finishes include the interchangeable pillion seat and aluminium rear rack as standard, removable pillion pegs and hangers, ‘Bear Trap’ adventure style front footpegs and an all terrain style bashplate. A ribbed Alcantara-style twin seat with contrast stitching and Triumph embossed logo and aluminium headlight bracket and black headlight bezel give it a high-class feel.

Other styling touches include distinctive competition-inspired numberboard side panel, new front mudguard mounts to suit the larger wheel, unique detailed rubber knee pads and contemporary mirrors.
 The premium touch of the entire Bonneville range is present in the details, including unique gun-metal finish engine badges, real brushed aluminium tank logo decals and black headlight bezel.

Fitted with the critically acclaimed 900cc Bonneville high-torque engine, the Street Scrambler delivers much more torque and power low down and in the midrange, perfect for around town and light off-roading. A key update to the original Bonneville engine platform, the 900cc engine features a charismatic 270° firing interval for smooth, linear power delivery from the slick five-speed gearbox.

Enhanced throttle response from Triumph’s ride-by-wire fuel injection and cutting-edge liquid-cooling system have been carefully integrated into the unique style of the Street Scrambler. This reduces fuel emissions and significantly improves fuel efficiency whilst providing smooth and precise drive for a higher level of control and rideability. This, combined with a new extended service interval of 16,000km dramatically reduces the overall cost of ownership.

The all new, more compact, high level twin Scrambler exhaust in beautiful stainless steel delivers a unique scrambler soundtrack, authentic scrambler style and features an intricate header run that cleverly integrates the cat box and is finished off with brushed stainless steel silencers with stylish contrasting black heat shields.

The stunning authentic Scrambler look comes complete with contemporary capability for maximum precision, control and safety and a wealth of advanced rider focused technology including ride-by-wire, switchable ABS, switchable traction control and torque assist clutch.

Just like the Street Twin the new Street Scrambler chassis set-up is tuned to deliver a neutral and predictable ride. This, combined with the same confidence inspiring evolution to “stand-over” ergonomics for manoeuvrability and seat height considerably lower than the previous model, makes it a really accessible and fun bike for every type of rider.

Contributing to the commanding riding position and signature silhouette are the new model specific front forks and rear suspension units which raise the back end for addition ride height, wider tapered aluminium handlebars and classic larger sized wire-spoked wheels. The new Street Scrambler comes with a large 19-inch wheel on the front and 17-inch wheel on the rear both of which have stylish steel blacked out hubs and rims.

Just like the Street Twin, the new Street Scrambler has been designed with personalisation at its heart and has more than 150 accessories to deliver more rugged off road focus, more style and more everyday usability. The off-road accessories include, adjustable rear piggy back FOX shocks, black glass-filled nylon headlight grill and a forged and machined aluminium handlebar brace in a black anodised finish.

The all-new Street Scrambler is available in Jet Black, Matt Khaki Green
, Korosi Red and Frozen Silver with jet black hand painted coach lining and unique tank decals. Pricing and Australian availability is yet to be confirmed but is expected in the coming weeks. Fore more information on the Triumph range head to
