Triumph has been teasing us with a new 1200cc Scrambler model and in a surprise move, an update to the existing model, the 2019 Street Scrambler has made an appearance at INTERMOT. Triumph has revealed the 2019 Triumph Street Scrambler and the 2019 Street Twin with a number of improvements. The peak horsepower produced is now up by 18%. The peak power now sits at 64 Bhp which arrives at 7500 rpm and the peak torque is 80 Nm which is available from as low as 3200 rpm.
The High Torque version of the 900cc parallel twin engine is on use and updated with a lighter crankshaft, a magnesium cam cover, and a new lighter clutch and mass optimized clutch cover. The ride-by-wire throttle control system offers two selectable engine modes, Road and Rain, with separate throttle maps and traction control settings. ABS is also switchable for light off-road use.
The Street Scrambler receives a four-piston Brembo brake caliper. Triumph also added a higher-spec cartridge front fork, with the tubes spaced further apart than the previous model. This required modifications to the front fender, top yoke and headlight brackets as well. Other updates include new number-board side panel graphics with the new logo, upgraded instruments with metallic details and a new seat.
For some light off-road duty, the Street Scrambler comes with dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tires. Wide handlebars and forward set pegs with “bear trap” grips, a bash plate and a 19-inch wire-spoke front wheel also help when you want to take the Street Scrambler off the paved roads.
For 2019, the Triumph Street Scrambler will be offered in three colors: Fusion White, Cranberry Red or Khaki Green and Matt Aluminum. Triumph also offers a number of accessories as well as an Urban Tracker kit which includes a 6.6-gallon pannier, Vance & Hines slip-on silencer, CNC machined black oil filler cap, black handlebar brace, number board kit, ribbed bench seat, black dresser bar kit, headlight grille and bezel, high front fender and sump guard kit.
The new Scrambler 1200 will be released in a couple of weeks and it’ll be interesting to see how the new Street Scrambler compares to it.
