No-nonsense 60s attitude. Ready for action.
Scrambler. Stripped down. Purposeful. Head turning. The stuff of Hollywood legends. With the latest twist. Our latest fuel injected, air-cooled 865cc parallel-twin, reworked with different timings for that distinctive exhaust note from those classy high swept chrome pipes. Fork gaiters. Pulling strongly from low down. An accessible ride that’s easy and relaxed. What it’s always been. Only better. Scrambler.
Triumph’s legendary air-cooled 865cc engine delivers plenty of midrange torque. 90% of peak torque is maintained from around 2,500rpm to redline, giving smooth power delivery.
Strong tubular steel cradle frame with supple front and rear suspension. Built tough to iron out the bumps. High wide handlebars and high set footpegs further aids control.
The scrambler features a fuel injection system compliant to euro 3 legislation. True to the 60’s styling, the fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like traditional carbs.
19 inch spoked front wheels and 17 inch spoked rear wheels with light knobbly tyres complete the authentic look.
High level twin chromed stainless steel exhaust pipes, retro styled silencers and evocative heat shields are key to the scrambler’s unique looks.

The Triumph Scrambler is certainly not as modern as some of its more upscale riders, but this doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good bike.
Its engine delivers a healthy punch thanks to the surprising amount of smooth torque that’s accessible from just 2,000 rpm. You won’t have any complains about the brakes or transmission either, while the light clutch lever is pretty easy to use and it can be adjusted according to your wishes.
Its high ground clearance helps it deal well with small, country roads which makes the bike fairly practical. However the same ground clearance makes it feel pretty heavy, but luckily the seat height is reasonable which improves confidence.
