Harkens Right Back To The Scrambler Heyday Of The ’60s

The scrambler market is enjoying something of a boom with everybody and his uncle jumping on the bandwagon in recent years. Unlike many of these Johnny-come-lately manufacturers, Triumph had been quietly producing their modern version of the classic scrambler concept, in the form of the aptly named Triumph Scrambler, since 2006 and continued up until 2017 when air cooling gave way to liquid. This favorite day-tripper by rough-and-tumble folks like Steve McQueen runs a fuel-injected engine in typical Triumph fashion with 865 cc parallel twin.

Triumph is setting up stage for a new 1200 Scrambler

Triumph is setting up stage for a new 1200 Scrambler

Bigger engine, brakes, suspension and expectations

This is Triumph’s efforts to prove that they still can rule the popular scrambler category. Bringing in a significant update in capability and style to the iconic British company, the potent 1200 Scrambler prototype builds on the 900 Scrambler’s position as the fun and accessible machine and vies for top honors at the crowded segment which every motorcycle manufacturer is going collectively mad over. Luckily for Triumph, they have a history with the Scramblers that dates back to the legend Steve McQueen.

The 1200 Scrambler boasts of the new high torque engine used on the Brit’s Bonneville lineup, and to handle all that additional power, this Scrambler gets equipped with bigger wheels, bigger brakes, and bigger suspension. This machine will make it its life’s purpose to give a couple of sleepless nights to the BMW R NineTs’ and the Ducati’s 1100s’.

Chris Pratt's Triumph Jurassic World Scrambler Sells For £28,000

Chris Pratt’s Triumph Jurassic World Scrambler Sells For £28,000

One of three Triumph Scramblers used in the filming of Jurassic World has been auctioned for a tidy sum of £28,000. That’s about $44,000 based on current exchange rates. It didn’t exactly fetch the $60,000 I thought it would, but given its association with Chris Pratt and the movie that just grossed $1.6 billion worldwide, I’d say that whoever won it for under $50,000 just scored a bargain price relative to how much it could cost in the future.

Unlike most high-class auctions we report on these pages, the Jurassic World Scrambler was actually auctioned off on eBay, which is a little surprising considering the stature of this particular motorcycle. But I hardly think the lucky winner of the auction is complaining about his huge score. Of the three Triumph Scramblers that were used in Jurassic World, this is the only one that was put up in the auction market. Pratt owns one of the other two while the other Scrambler is sitting comfortably inside Triumph’s museum in the UK.

The best thing about this auction is that proceeds from the sale will be sent directly to the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, Triumph Motorcycles’ official charity partner. According to the British motorcycle brand, the proceeds the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride will receive will go directly to relief and research towards finding a cure for prostate cancer.

Only time will tell if the other two Scramblers will hit the market, but for now, the lucky winner of the Jurassic World Scrambler auction can take comfort knowing that he’s the only one in the world in possession of a customized Triumph Scrambler that ran along side a pack of raptors.

Not a bad story to tell the kids, huh?

2015 Triumph Scrambler

2015 Triumph Scrambler

The Triumph Scrambler first entered the market in 2006, carrying the designation as the last Triumph motorcycle designed by famed motorcycle designer John Mockett. The Scrambler was initially designed to be a doppelgänger of sorts to the Bonneville cruiser, a touring bike with off-road styling and limited off-road capability.

The Scrambler differentiates itself as a more upright bike than the Bonneville. It has high and wide handlebars to match its higher seating position. It also has high level stacked twin exhausts and crossover exhaust headers, two design qualities attributed to the original Triumph TR6C Trophy Special from the late 1960s.

These days, the Scrambler is considered a real retro-styled tourer apt for modern times. The bike’s retro style offers a nice touch of Triumph’s heritage while also imbibing all the modern qualities you’d want in a spitfire bike. It’s not the most powerful bike in the market, but for what you’re getting, the Scrambler crosses off a lot of your pre-conceived requirements in an adventure tourer.

2013 Triumph Scrambler

2013 Triumph Scrambler

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.

2012 Triumph Scrambler

2012 Triumph Scrambler

The 2012 Triumph Scrambler harkens back to the days when stripped-down desert sleds of the 1960s were in vogue. Fast forward to today and you have an off-road traveler that likewise boasts of a modern road-based package.

The Scrambler takes its inspiration from those old Triumph ISDT machines that were once famously ridden by Steve McQueen with its classic styling dominated by twin high-level exhausts, designed to provide maximum ground clearance on rough terrain.

The design of the bike is pretty old school, only adding to its modern-day appeal. The utilitarian style is highlighted by the two simple single-color options, with a new Matte Black option joining the popular military-style Matte Khaki Green. Likewise, the spoked wheels with lightly knobbed tires, high footrests, rugged fork gaiters and wide, off-road style handlebars give a further nod to the Scrambler’s off-road heritage. Then there are items such as headlight grills, skid plate, and number boards, all of which adds even further resemblance to the ISDT models of the 60’s.

Powering the Scrambler is a unique version of Triumph’s 865cc parallel-twin engine. 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 output of 58 brake horsepower and 50 lb/ft of torque at just 4,750 rpm, making the Scrambler a versatile ride that can tackle a number of riding 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 which can be cranked up a notch and enjoyed just like those old mavens that used to run wild on the roads and highways of the world.

2010 Triumph Scrambler

2010 Triumph Scrambler

The Triumph Scrambler is an everyday reminder of how off-road bikes used to be built in the past and as a 2010 model year is even better with the fuel injection and a new color range that reflects more of the model’s abilities from the very first look taken at it.

Powerful, reliable, but most of all versatile, the original British idea of an all around motorcycle remains strong on today’s competitive market and such a statement is not to be neglected.

Triumph Scrambler special by TPR

Triumph Scrambler special by TPR

We rarely get to see an Italian fingerprint on a British bike, so when we heard about the Triumph Scrambler special recently launched by TPR, a Milan-based firm, we simply had to find out more about it. And we did. This Urban Scrambler, which is reminiscent of the 50’s and 60’s, is actually built around the classic Bonneville chassis, but receives its juice from an 800cc twin cylinder engine. This should keep the company’s first production special more than interesting for customers a long time after being purchased.

While we may not know if the great majority of those customers will be from Italy or GB, we do know they’ll most likely be attracted by the high-level dual exhaust (one pipe on each side), polished number boards and detailed finish.

Like any self-respecting special, TPR’s Triumph Scrambler comes with a price tag that positions it right on the thin edge between decently-priced and expensive: €14,000 ($19,779).
