With its classic style and the old school stance, the 2013 Triumph Scrambler looks like a blast from the past. And there is no wonder why, because when designing the Scrambler, Triumph’s engineers have drawn inspiration from the 60s Triumph off-road sports motorcycles that were stripped down for racing.
In terms of style, we especially like the Scrambler’s classic gaiters and high swept chromed side pipes, as well as the spoked wheels, high footrests and the wide off-road style handlebars.
The motorcycle’s backbone is represented by a strong tubular steel cradle frame which is combined with 41mm forks and chromed spring twin shocks with adjustable preload.
Needless to say that the Scrambler’s center piece is, of course the engine – an air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin unit that sends its power to the ground through a five speed gearbox. The engine rewards you with an average fuel consumption of 53 mpg.

Powering the scrambler is a unique version of triumph’s 865cc parallel-twin. Designed outwardly to look like a classic 1960s twin, this dohc eight-valve unit is a low maintenance modern engine developed to meet the most stringent emissions regulations. The fuel-injected twin delivers a laid back 58bhp, with 50 ft.lbs of torque at just 4750rpm making the scrambler a breeze to ride in all conditions. With its 270- degree crankshaft, the scrambler takes on a totally different character to the other models in triumph’s classic range, producing a totally addictive off-beat soundtrack.
